Holiday Correspondence

Receiving holiday cards is another tradition that makes this time of year special for me. Texts and emails are forgotten and we return to old fashioned snail mail. I love reading the much maligned "family update letter" as well as receiving unique cards from friends all over the world. One year we painted Christmas themed paintings to use as our cards.

There are lovely cards by the  artist Claus Hoie of local Hampton's scenes that are available from the East Hampton Historical Society. Dan's Papers featured his painting "Skating on Town Pond" on the cover of it's December 7, 2012 issue. Read more about Claus Hoie here.
