I send a personalized card - and try to hand address them - this year is a picture of the family at my daughter's graduation from college with the grandson there too and my son and daughter in law.

That's the good thing about our business.  There are many ways of conducting it.  For me, the method of communication at any time of the  year will vary by client.

Yes, I do believe it's important. For some I send a holiday themed calendar, others get a calendar and a card, others get calendar, card and a call. I don't text or email blast my clients for the holidays.

I send holiday cards to all clients, past clients, and my sphere. I keep it generic and include a personal note. This year I ordered cards I made on Shutterfly rther than purchasing cards. I do some emails and calling, too

I do think it's important, and I mix it up with mailed cards, emails, and phone calls.  I've got clientele around the country so unless Santa lets me hop on the sleigh, it'd be tough to do too many drop bys

I don't observe the holiday, and in respect to others who do not, I simply send an end of year thank you card.  I reflect on the past business, what I look forward to in the coming year and thank them for being a part of it....wishing them the best.  Oh, and this is ONLY by USPS.  I do not use email for personal greetings.

I'm doing "Happy Holidays" because so many of my clients have religious and spiritual traditions that celebrate other holidays.  Almost all celebrate something involving food and gift giving around the end of December.  And while I doubt they'd be offended by "Merry Christmas", they might appreciate a "Holiday" wish!

And mine will be in the form of a party invitation that I will both snail and email.

Most will receive a card with their denomination; very few get a Happy Holiday.

All will get the monthly news letter and quite a few get a pop by.

I have a client appreciation party and those who don't attend, get a pop by with the hostess gift we give out at the party.  They all also get a hand-written holiday card in the mail and we also send out an email Happy Holiday wish as many of our sellers have moved from the area and we still keep in touch with them that way.
