Writing the perfect Thanksgiving message is an art in itself — one in which we take great interest. There are so many ways to go about writing your message that we've written a whole comprehensive guide
on the subject, but below are a few key points of summary.
Show your gratitude in your Thanksgiving cards.
Try to keep your messsage focused on gratitude. You're writing to wish your friends and family a Happy Thanksgiving, after all, so make sure that stays the focal point. Level up your Thanksgiving cards by getting personal with details in your message. Pick one special thing you're grateful for that has to do with that person and tell them why you're grateful for it. Don't go over board by listing a bunch of items or exaggerating; this will only dilute the sincerity.
Keep your sentiment short.
Speaking of listing everything on your mind: don't. Your Thanksgiving cards don't have a whole lot of space so get to the point quickly.
Be mindful of the recipient's situation.
While 2021 hasn't felt as much of a garbage fire as 2020, it has still been really difficult for many people. Keep this in mind when writing your Thanksgiving messages this year and be mindful of any particular struggles your recipients might be experiencing. You don't want to sound tone deaf so if that's the case, mentioning that they're in your thoughts is a simple way to address the elephant in the room without dwelling on the negative.
