As I clean up after Christmas, I'm struck by the richness of teaching materials sitting in my card basket--those heaps of Christmas letters. First lesson--don't make the family name plural with an apostrophe!!
The greeting isn't from "The Simpson's"--it's from "The Simpsons." Family names are pluralized in a pretty regular fashion: one Smith, two Smiths, the Smith family; Ann Jones, the Joneses, the Jones family. So simple.
