my annual Christmas letter

“Aunt Clara had for years labored under the delusion that I was not only perpetually 4 years old, but also a girl.”    ~ Ralphie, A Christmas Story

My annual Christmas letter didn’t get sent along with my cards, which comes as no disappointment to others due to the simple fact that I’ve never written one. Now with the digital age, it’s too easy to share a firsthand account in a split second, provided you have high speed Internet service.  The news item might be hot off the press, but it’s not a years summary of info printed on decorative holiday paper neatly folded inside a colorful greeting card.  I’ve known some people to just send the letter, but that’s not the point.  The point is I can’t compete with the “hard copies”, because my own personal activity is on a need-to-know basis.  I share my whereabouts on Foursquare, my recent photos of us and our puppy dogs on Instagram, and our social escapades on Facebook.  What else could I share in an annual holiday letter?  If anyone has any suggestions, text me.
