I have never done one. I guess if there were people that I didn't keep in touch with it would be a good idea but I talk to everyone all the time so I already know what is going on.

I've never gotten one and never done one. If I lived far away from family, I might think about one, but it would seem like "bragging" if I'm telling everyone how wonderful my life is!

None of my family, or friends do newsletters. I had seen one before sent to one of our relatives a few years back, then heard about it, and I thought that it was a neat way to spread the news of what happended throughout the year with the ones you care about. Also being able to produce something in a larger quantity then having to write each message out is a faster way of doing things. Of course you can always write a personal note as well. I used to write out cards before, but now since the kids are here we do photo Christmas cards, and I write letters for some of the cards.

My cousin and his wife live in Maine, and every year, they send a chritmas newsletter, complete with pictures of their family. Although i don't really mind hearing about their family, the newsletter, is a bit overboard, and my cousins wife makes everything sound "sickening sweet". it's just too much sometimes. I also have a cousin in Pennsylvainia, and his family newsletter, is fun to read, filled with reality of his family, along with some humor as well. My cousin in Texas also sends a letter, an i enjoy her's the most. It's "true to life" about herself, her husband and three children, and whats been going on in their life, in otherwords, not "sickening sweet", but true to life.

LOL, I always plan to write one and I did one year when I had some news. That was the Nov. we got two new grand babies. Well, I have an former roommate who always sends out newsletters and I do enjoy reading them but they make me feel like I have no life at all.
I having nothing exciting or newsworthy to write with the exception of announcing our new grand babies. We rarely go on vacation; we do not meet important people; nothing really changes in our lives and that can be good or not. Sometimes I get newsletters from relatives who have traveled abroad, went on a cruise and ate at the Captains table, have met the President (Bush) and it goes on and on. So you see my newsletter would be very boring.

Example; I got up this morning and made coffee, ummmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Merry Christmas everyone.

And yes that episode of "Raymond" was very funny and so true.

We don't put out a Christmas letter ourselves, yet we do really appreciate receiving them from others. We have relatives and friends alike who send them to us.

Sometimes these newsletters make for our 'yearly updates' on folks we never seem stay in touch with on a frequent basis (yet enjoy hearing from...!)
