In your Xmas Man episode, you introduced the Christmas card topic by struggling through which valediction to use. I especially appreciated your comment regarding 'xoxo': "They'll know it's a forgery!"
I am constantly struggling with this in personal writing, and haven't found a go-to way to sign off emails.
Do you have any good suggestions for valedictions? "Sincerely" is so overused it doesn't seem sincere at all. And "Regards" is what my dad uses, so it seems wrong for me. Don't even get my started on "Blessings". Is it possible to avoid being hackneyed while also avoiding sounding like you're deliberately bucking standard form?
Readers, what would you suggest? I often opt for 'Cheers', in the casual goodbye sense (rather than the drink salutation or sitcom), but outside of Britain this might not wash. So, please advise.
