How to Write Greeting Letters
A greeting letter is simply a letter that is sent to extend well wishes and to keep in touch with your recipient.
This is usually given to people whom you have not seen in quite some time, miss, or want to touch bases with after a while. These are generally personal letters, thus, considered quite informal and have no fixed format. It usually boils down to preference whether or not you, as the writer, will want to print or handwrite such a letter.
While, as mentioned above, there are no set rules on how to write a letter like this, it is good to start it by asking how your reader is doing. Here you can mention the last time you spent time together or saw each other and how much time has passed since then.
You can also include some details regarding the events going on in your life. You can highlight some of the changes that have occurred since the last time you and the person you’re sending the letter to spoke, in order to update him on her on your current status.
A greeting letter can also include plans to meet or talk over the phone in order to further catch up.
Try to be specific with the date and time that is most convenient for you. If the person you’re sending the letter to doesn’t have your contact details, you can include this towards the end of your letter so that he or she can confirm the proposed appointment.
