•Chocolate - You finish what you start and demand the best in creature comforts because you're willing to work hard to achieve the financial success required.
•Macaroni and Cheese - You're blessed with positive foresight, and your clan depends on you for support when times are tough. They know your loyalty and positive attitude are precisely what they need to solve their problems.
•Pizza - Brainy and talkative, you love nothing better than a lively conversation with equally intelligent people. You believe in a rosy future and your positive attitude will win the day.
•Ice Cream - You draw strength and comfort from the experiences of your youth, holding on to those lessons learned as tightly as you do your dreams and aspirations as an adult.
•Soup - You're a thoughtful person and a levelheaded person who rarely struggles with stress. You take life as it comes and never lose your head or your sense of humor.
•Mashed Potatoes - This is the king of all comfort foods and a main dish at many holiday family dinners. Your close attachment to loved ones has given you plenty of self confidence. You're also a quick thinker who family and friends depend on for clever ideas and solutions.
If you follow these four simple steps, you'll write a holiday letter that loved ones will actually enjoy reading.
Yule Rule Number 1: You care for these people. Make the love and caring come through in the letter. Use the opportunity to remind them of the things that really matter in your life.
Yule Rule Number 2: Use vivid language to tell your story. Let them "see" the special moments. This is not a drab inventory; it is a catalog of adventures.
Yule Rule Number 3: Level with them about the hardships of the past year. While you want to keep the letter upbeat, it's important to strike a balance between spreading cheer and being sincere.
Yule Rule Number 4: Enough is enough. Two pages of news is plenty. Writing any more than that is likely to overwhelm your readers.
It's a perfect time to discover what your favorite holiday says about your personality:
•New Year's -- You always spot the silver lining inside even the darkest clouds, keeping an upbeat, positive attitude in the middle of the worst situations. Your sunny optimism is a natural mood enhancer for family and friends, who depend on your smiling support when they're at their emotional limit.
•Valentine's Day -- You're fearless when it comes to expressing your emotions, willing to risk embarrassment or hurt feelings in your quest for true love. Your bravery doesn't stop there as you meet challenges at work and home with cool confidence.
•Easter or Passover -- The unique promise of spring signals a renewal of the spirit and a return to the outdoor activities you adore. You're also an independent person who loved ones depend upon for support and clear eyed solutions to any crisis big or small.
•Halloween -- You're a dedicated team member who improves your community by unselfishly giving your time and talents to make it a better place. You revel in meeting new people, opening your heart and home to strangers who quickly become cherished friends.
•Thanksgiving -- This holiday is all about sharing memories and traditions, and your witty way with family stories puts you at the center of the gathering. Your warm and affectionate nature makes you a star with family and friends who bask in the glow of your high spirits.
•Christmas or Hanukkah -- You're a sentimental soul who enjoys this time of year. In fact, your classy sophistication is never more apparent than in the way you separate the material aspects from the spiritual aspects of the occasion. You're the one who keeps religion in the picture.
