It's that festive time of the year – you can just feel the merriment and that lovely sense of nostalgia in the air.
In this modern age, we still love to stick to our traditions - we all have them, and it's possibly that one time of the year where we reach out to our friends and family.
Sending an e-card is never the same. Getting a digital card, email or text cannot replace the pleasure of receiving a hand-written card.
The Mistress of Manners wishes you and yours a joyous holiday. Enjoy your family time, a spot of relaxation, and try not to over-indulge in all the goodies - everything in moderation (wise words that have been passed on for generations).
Looking forward to 2012 - here's to health and happiness, and the rest will follow.
Oh, and of course please don't forget to mind your Ps and Qs.
