Thank you for letting Tannery & Company be a part of your family.
Our office will be closed December 24 and 25.
When Jimmy Fallon sits down to write his weekly thank-you notes on “The Tonight Show,” he is both ribbing and breathing life into a custom many felt was headed the way of the home phone lines.
“Thank you, cotton candy,” Mr. Fallon scribbles on a correspondence card, “for making my grandmother’s hair look delicious.”
“Thank you, bowling, for giving me an excuse to drink with somebody else’s shoes on.”
“Thank you, Chris Christie,” he writes, “for going back for seconds.”
Mr. Fallon’s routine is a hoot! Of course, a joke that points at the truth, that the boring stuff your parents made you do, never actually goes out of fashion. It also inadvertently supports recent scientific findings linking gratitude to increased optimism, stress reduction, and a better night’s sleep. The few who actually sit down to write a note are not only on trend, but also on their way to becoming happier, more sociable people.
Apparently, what Emily Post termed good manners (science prefers “gratitude intervention”) has all kinds of unexpected benefits. And as it happens, the handwritten gratitude intervention seems to be experiencing a moment of vogue.
With an apology to Ms. Post, we acknowledge that a digital format does not quite convey the emotion of a hand written note. We have all been occupied with life and Buddy does just not have his penmanship perfected.
We want to say THANK YOU.
Thank you giving us the opportunity to be a part of your life. We are inspired by what you accomplish as women, men, mothers, fathers, grandparents, and children. You are leaders in your community and spend many of your hours giving to others with your time and money. Your actions make a difference.
During the Seasons of Giving – whether it is Christmas, Hanukah, or another religion, I encourage you to say “Thank You.” The experience the gift of being courteous is infectious and it will impact your life and those around you.
