The New Year card and the included New Year greetings

As soon as the old year comes to an end, people reflect on those who have played an important role for them during the year or who may do so in the coming year; thoughts turn to those who are important for a variety of reasons and who want to be shown that they are being remembered at the turn of the year. A short or longer New Year's greeting is a wonderful idea for this!

Selecting the right greeting card
. When choosing the New Year card, the type of relationship that exists with the addressee and what kind of New Year greetings it should be is important. Has the addressee had a difficult year and the greeting should encourage him? Is he simply a good friend whom you have not seen for a long time? All this should be considered when choosing the appropriate card for the New Year greetings. The addressee, who had some strokes of fate in the past year, should be sent a New Year's card, which has a rather calm motif that conveys strength and confidence. For example, the image of a horizon, a beautiful landscape or something similar. In the case of a friend, it can be a cheerful motif, for example, with champagne glasses, lucky pigs, a chimney sweep, fireworks or a shamrock - just the symbols that belong to the turn of the year. The degree of humor of the greetings then depends entirely on the humor of the friend.

The greeting text in the New Year card
. Here, too, the addressee must be considered when choosing the right greetings or wishes. To the boss or good acquaintance one writes - after selection of a neutral, but positive card motive, friendly, but rather general New Year greetings are appropriate. Appropriate would be there for example: " For the new year we wish good luck and health" or simply : "The best wishes for the new year" or alternatively: " All the best for the new year". Basically, the more personal the relationship is, the more individual the New Year greetings should be. Here, too, the personal life situation of the addressee should be taken into account and, if necessary, words of encouragement should be used.

Salutation and closing formula of the New Year greeting
. In the salutation, the degree of relationship between the well-wisher and the addressee must be taken into account. However, a salutation with "Dear" or "Love" is appropriate in any case, since only positive messages are to be transported by the New Year's greetings. For closer friends, the more personal form "My dear" or "My love" is also possible - this is then a question of personal taste. As a closing formula, phrases such as "In hope of a good year remain..." or "All the best for the new year wish..." or "A toast to the turn of the year from..." are suitable. However, a simple "Cheers New Year from..." is also quite simple.

New Year's greetings as a conclusion of the year
. No matter how you formulate the greetings at the turn of the year, it is important to show people that you have given them good wishes for the new year. As long as the New Year greetings transport this content, they will not miss their target and make someone happy.
