Christmas Letter from Student to Teacher

By | December 22, 2016

‘Tis the season for selfless giving,
Ugly sweaters and beautiful trimmings,

For souls adorned with the joy of forgiving,
For wreathes and garlands and love-filled stockings,

For streets abloom with sweet sounding carols
For tables abundant with puddings and stuffings.

It’s Christmas! So bring out your pens and papers
Let hearts be warmed with letters and greetings

To send a letter with love to your teachers in this magical time of the year would be delightful for them! Telling them how much they’ve done for you, teaching you new things everyday. Be formal, but you can be a little informal while expressing your feelings, ‘cuz it’s Christmas after all, you know! Thank them for their patience with all the tough time you gave them throughout the year in class. Give warms greetings, and good wishes. Share with them your thoughts about Christmas, and how you’re spending the holidays. Begin and end with good wishes.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Dear Ms. Page:

I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas.

I hope your holidays are filled with festivities, abundance and joy. I dream of a white Christmas, with hearts reformed, reflective and reminiscent of Christ’s humble birth, and happy, well-fed towns. May your days be bright and shining!

I am really enjoying the holidays with my family. After finishing all the decorations with my young siblings, I had some free time, so I thought I should right my favorite teacher! I was watching the movie “The Shawshank Redemption,” which you recommended and approved for the class. It’s really thought-giving and teaches life lessons!

Our family is hosting a Christmas dinner party, as always, and we’re inviting our close relatives, and some friends too. Do join us in celebration of this splendid season. I was helping my mother with the dinner and I realized it’s actually about forgetting ourselves and taking out time for others, as you said the last day before the holidays started! It feels really good this Christmas, seeing and inspiring happiness.

I just wanted to thank you for all the time you take out of your busy life to explain and teach us such valuable, notable, knowledge, skills, and life lessons! Thank you for all the new things and ideas that you give us, and for never letting us down!

Once again, Merry Christmas and best wishes for a New Year. May the miracle of Christmas fill your heart with joy!
