Our Annual Christmas Letters

Bonnie and I sent out Christmas letters for probably 30 years. The first such letters were created by cutting and pasting and using colored paper on a copy machine. With today's technology a "Christmas Letter" can be sent by e-mail, but I will continue to go with with a letter sent through USPS - doing my part to keep the agency alive.

Of course, the hardest letter to write was Christmas 2014. I even considered quitting the "tradition." But decided not to.

I am well aware that these type annual notes are not always enthusiastically received, and the BradenClan letters may well fall into the same category. Nonetheless, they provide an annual update on some of the BradenClan activities, and are hopefully light enough to be also a bit entertaining.

Though the words are different, the message is always the same: I am thankful for our wonderful friends, many whom I have known for a number of years, and do want to remember the "reason for the season."
