A Christmas letter is the best way to restore and strengthen bonds with friends and family. Although you may be meeting with most of your dear ones, there may be a few that live far, and you meet less frequently. In such a situation, writing a Christmas letter to them gives you an opportunity to show that they are missed on this special day.

Here is a sample on how a Christmas letter to a friend is written:

Dear Carrie,


I know it has been a long time since we last met, but I would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year. I hope you are in the best of health and spirits.


Alyssa and I have been thinking about you for the past few weeks, and we honestly miss spending Christmas with you. Having you in the neighborhood was a big support to us. Last Christmas, we had such a lovely evening together with the family. I do hope you have found lovely neighbors there, but if possible, we would love to have you over for dinner on Christmas. Once again, we will enjoy the festivities of Christmas together.


I wish you a prosperous Christmas once again, and await your reply.


Thanks and warm regards,

Steven & Alyssa
