What to Write in a Christmas Card

It's the same story for everyone isn't it? You have a list as long as the Nile River of things to do before Granny comes for Christmas dinner and nowhere near enough time to get it all done. You have all the gifts wrapped the next thing is to write in the cards, but where do you start? Finding the right words can be tricky, I know it’s something I struggle with too — but don't get your tinsel in a tangle, we’ve got you covered!
