Andrea's column: Andrea's seasonal communique
This is my first real holiday letter. I have, on occasion, jotted down a few words in some cards to out-of-state friends and family but they are nothing like the long, newsy missives we receive from so many people.
Every year, the lengthy mass-produced letters regale us with news of trips taken by the senders. The accomplishments of their successful children. The antics of their beautiful, busy, super-star grandchildren.
