Here are four simple tips for adding some cheer to the task of signing your season’s greetings:
- Stock up: Before you start, make sure you have enough stamps, cards, envelopes and working pens. You don’t want to run out of something when you’re on a roll.
- Keep it short and sweet: You can express Christmas joy and caring without saying a lot.
- Get a soundtrack: Set the jolly mood by putting on some of your favourite holiday music. Make it part of your card-signing tradition.
- The more, the merrier: Many hands make light work, so enlist the help of family members if possible. Even very young children can sign their own names or add a cute drawing. Older kids may enjoy adding personal messages of their own to cards. If there are cookies involved, they might even help address envelopes.
