Read an Excerpt

'Tis the week before the holidays and I'm in a tizzy,

The shopping, the baking, the decorating -- I'm dizzy!

And the holiday cards! I still haven't sent 'em,

My pen's in my hand, but the words, I can't find 'em!

If you're anything like me, you vow each year after Thanksgiving that this time, this holiday season, you're going to do things right. You're going to be totally organized. The decorations will be up weeks ahead of time. All the gifts will be bought and wrapped with days to spare. There'll be no last-minute run to a mob scene at Toys "R" Us; no baking cookies at midnight the night before guests arrive.

And the holiday cards? You'll write them out -- thoughtfully, with personalized greetings -- and mail them in plenty of time to arrive before the holidays.


Well, that's where this little book will come in handy. Finding the Right Words for the Holidays has everything you need to make writing holiday greeting cards a snap. Inside are how-to's for writing the Family Holiday Newsletter; helpful hints to simplify holiday card-sending; Holiday Card Recipient Lists, in which you can record the names of people to whom cards will be sent; even a list of state abbreviations. Best of all, and most important, there are lists of perfect phrases for each holiday -- Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and the New Year -- as well as famous sayings and poems. And the greetings and sayings are interchangeable: feel free to choose among them, to mix and match them as you please, especially if you're part of a family that blends together two or more traditions -- Christmas and Hanukkah; or Christmas and Kwanzaa, for example.

No more sitting with pen in hand, staring into space, waiting for inspiration to strike. Simply pick up this book and voila! You'll find all the right words at your fingertips.

    This little book has been indispensible to me when personalizing greeting cards and notes. It'so difficult to think of just the right thing to add and this book has gotten me started with fantastic suggestions or a combination of phrases. I don't know what I would do without it! Thank you so much for making my life easier, Beverly, and my family/friends think I'm so gifted and thoughtful for personalizing their cards with your phrases.
