A lovely thing about Christmas is that it's compulsory, like a thunderstorm, and we all go through it together.

-- Garrison Keillor

Rushing to get those final cards out for Christmas?

Yeah, same at my house, but maybe I can help.

I've offered an adjustable format for the holiday family newsletter you can stick in your Christmas card. I've experimented with such newsletters in the past, and I think this provides an adequate presentation.

If you're like me, you've probably wondered how your friends could pack 12 months of glowing achievement into a narrative so upbeat that your own 2008 seems sadly lacking.

Well, I'm glad to help.

Just follow the simple format below and choose your own options.

Think of it as my Christmas gift to you.

Hello Bill Kirby: While I detest those Xmas newsletters (most are so much baloney), thanks for the laugh.
