    Greetings

    Dear Teacher,

    Grateful if you would advise whether it is a bit early to include the Christmas greetings in a letter. For example, the last sentence of a letter may be like this:

    "I look forward to your favourable response and wish to take this opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas."

    Is there any rules about the timing of including the greetings?

    Thank you in advance for your advice!

    With best wishes,
    Ily

    Hi, Ily!

    In the US we traditionally begin the Christmas season once we have celebrated Thanksgiving in late November. It is common to begin wishing people a "Merry Christmas" from now until December 25!

    By the way, best wishes to you and your family for a wonderful Christmas celebration!

    Cheers,
    Amigo
