Default Sending New Year's greetings now?!


I've not exactly kept in touch with all too many people over the past year, and when the golden opportunity of wishing actuaries I know over either Festivus Christmas or New Year's came, I slept on both of them. It's about ten days from Jan 1 now, and as I open my Gmail I can hear Curb Your Enthusiasm starting to play loudly in my head. Is it still okay to wish any professional connections that I've not spoken to?

What's your objective? You just want to say "Hi"? Are you a consultant selling something, or sending to actuaries in other departments that you work with and want to form a favorable impression or ????

Basically, I send notes like that to keep in touch, but I usually have a purpose, like "saw this on LI and thought of you" or "starting to do this project, I know you did something similar, curious if you have advice" or something like that. So, I'm not sure what you're trying to do, but probably okay IMO regardless.

I'll probably still send notes in February (honestly, could be March) that say something like "Hope your 2018 is starting off well, saw this article on LI and thought you might find it interesting because we talked about blah blah blah..."
