You’ve opened all the gifts and had time to enjoy the new toys, books, and clothes. Now it’s time to practice your ETIQUETTE! Many people think etiquette is outmoded, old fashioned, BORING! But actually it’s just a way to make you, and everyone around you, feel more comfortable and confident.
Etiquette includes manners, and it is good manners to thank people who give you something or do something for you. This time of year is a good time to think about writing thank you notes to all those people who thought enough about you to choose, shop for, wrap, and deliver something special just for you.
