Writing Christmas cards gives me almost instant writerís cramp. My handwriting, always eccentric looking, has become almost illegible from lack of use, and the inside of the cards appear to have been visited by an extremely drunk spider who stumbled into an unattended inkwell. But as I scrawl in each, I hope the recipient will be as delighted to know I am thinking of him or her as I am to think of the friend for whom I am scribbling a seasonal message of love and caring. Isnít everyone glad to get a Christmas card, if not to write one?
