May the blessing of this holy season fill you with joy and peace!

1998 was not the greatest year for the Rogers. In February I was let go by the church, and even though the charges of grand theft were eventally dropped, the legal fees sent us into backruptcy. Linda became so depressed that she took a medical leave from teaching and took off to Mexico for a month with one of her student teachers. She returned just in time to learn that our dogs ran away when the house burned down, which wouldn't have been so bad except our homeowners insurance had lapsed. Linda and I have reconciled and just purchased a 1966 VW van so we can visit all of our friends now that we are homeless. We look forward to seeing you very soon.

Well, no, none of the above is true, but you have to admit it makes more interesting reading that what our lives have really been like!

This is one page of over four dozen devoted to Christmas news letters. The main Christmas News Letters page has links to more examples, plus some general guidelines and specific suggestions for writing Christmas news letters. If you have an example, either good or bad, that you'd like to share with the rest of the world, send it to me and I'll add it to these pages.
