Thank you, Merci, Grazie

Every Christmas my sisters would quietly, but not so secretly try to see who could write all their thank you notes first.  We don’t know who won (I did), but it’s become a tradition and a point of pride to write a good and prompt thank you note.  Even if the gift is small and maybe didn’t take that much time to get, it’s right to thank somebody.  It really makes a difference and makes that person feel appreciated.  I’m not here to lecture anybody on etiquette but it’s almost like a lost art these days.  The funny thing is, is that cute letter press thank you notes are everywhere so people should be scooping them up and writing their hands off!

It’s nice to show gratitude for however large or small the gift was and let’s be real, email isn’t a thank you note.  Especially after you’ve seen all these!  So, do you guys write thank you notes?  Still writing some from Christmas (I owe one more to my Sister in law!)?
