Don’t forget to write those Thank You cards to all the people that remembered you during the holidays. This is an important tradition that should be continued in today’s busy world! This can be a family occasion as well, and all kinds of craft ideas can be used. If you start your kids early (as opposed to late in life like I did) then it can really be a personal thing they enjoy. It is always nice to be thanked yourself, spread that feeling to someone else.
