India Etiquette

by Mrs. Carol Jindra



I was wondering how to word a thank you note to a family from India. Their note read: Congratulations from Samaira(their 1 year old), Shiprah(the mother) and Ablusher(the father).

Do I address the little girl first in my note of return?

Thank you for you help

Response seems correct

Carol,

Thank you for your interesting question. I doubt there is one correct answer. However, I think you instinct is accurate. Addressing the note to each in the order they signed their card is proper. If you do not know them well, you can also address it to the family and not Individual members.


Good luck,

Ms. Practical Etiquette

Thank you card
by: Carol

I believe the way you wrote your thank you card was appropriate. If the gifts were for Samaira, then it would be proper to use her name first. Please feel free to contact me any time with any questions you may have.

Your friend,


Carol
