Further things to consider when writing holiday letters to family
Holiday letters are letters you write to friends, family members, colleagues, or acquaintances wishing them the best during a holiday, vacation, or festive season. They can also be written in a business setting to pass crucial information to staff members about an upcoming holiday. Maybe it is to announce Christmas holiday closing. Perhaps it is to inform employees about a Thanksgiving work schedule. Writing a holiday letter ensures that each employee gets the information and that he/she knows what to do. A holiday letter can also be used by employees to request for holidays from their employers.
Before writing holiday letters, you need to consider your recipients and purpose. Choose your words sensitively, keeping in mind that the recipient may not have the time to celebrate the holiday you mention. Begin with a warm, personal greeting and acknowledge the upcoming holiday. Keep the letter interesting and upbeat. If you are writing to announce the company's closing date or work schedule for an upcoming holiday, for instance, state the dates clearly and give the relevant details. If you are writing to request for a holiday, explain why you need the holiday. Close the letter on a positive note.
Letters to Family
Letters to family are letters written to people who are related to each other by blood, marriage, or adoption, who commit to the mutual relationship. In most cases, these letters are sent by people who are away from their families. The purpose of writing to family members is mostly to let them know that you care about them and that they are on your mind. Apart from greetings letters to say hello to your family, you could send a congratulation letter to your daughter for graduating to the next class, an apology letter for missing your son's birthday or a thank-you letter for a gift from your wife.
Letters to family are usually casual. Therefore, the tone should be warm, sweet, and friendly. Depending on the reason for your writing, you can address a family letter to a specific person or the entire family. Open the letter with warm greetings. Deliver your message clearly. Where necessary, mention important news or events. Write in a conversational manner that makes the recipient feel as if you are actually talking to him/her. Close with a statement of reassurance of your love for the recipient and/or a request to write back.
