What to Write in Your Holiday Cards this Year

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: the time of year when we all take a moment to tell the special people in our lives how much they mean to us. It isn’t every day that you receive a personal message from your friends and family in the mail anymore.

Here are some ideas for holiday greetings that are sure to bring a smile to the faces of all of your favorite people:

  • We never thought we’d be in quarantine this long, but we’re cherishing all of our moments together.
