A Greeting letter is an effective way to stay in touch with your loved ones or friends, especially if you have not met up with them for some time. It is a light-hearted letter which allows you to update your happenings to another without any embarrassment and you are free to word the contents as you like. The letter is not formal, therefore it does not entail any formal requirements when the writer is writing the letter.
The letter may be used to reminisce past moments. This ensures that the rapport between the writer and the receiver is strong. A greeting letter also ensures that the writer is able to develop a greater connection with the receiver, who becomes a friend instead of just remaining an acquaintance. The letter may be written during a particular season or during birthdays or anniversaries. The letter is usually informal, although formality depends on the context and the relationship between the addressee and the writer.

Subject: Season’s greetings.
I wish you a very happy fourth of July. I hope you had a great time with your family and friends. I must ask how you have been since our last meet. I am fine thanks to wonderful friends and companions like you! It has been some time since we last met up. We used to meet on the golf course every Saturday and enjoy a round or two together when I was in the United States of America. But I have not seen you around so far this month when I learned that you were in Australia for vacation.
Of course, I was away at work last month and came back only on June 5. Then, I was informed by Mike Scholl on the golf course last Saturday that you had taken ill. I do hope you are recovering well.
Let me know if there is anything I can do for you during your recovery. If not, I shall see you on the golf course for a game soon. Please note down my new number that I use in Australia 0099009900. I hope Martha and the kids are doing well. Your mother-in-law’s chicken recipe is extraordinary and I cannot wait to meet your family and you again.
I wish you a speedy recovery. Once again,
