Traditional Christmas Card Greetings
You probably want to get away from the more traditional sayings right? You are tired of cards that simply say Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, or We Wish You a Merry Christmas. If you are then think about some of the true traditional greetings from the 1800s. The Victorian age when greeting cards started in earnest can provide you with meaningful phrases such as “I will honor Christmas in my heart as I do you.” Not only are you saying Christmas is important, but you have added something for the receiver letting them know you feel they are just as important to you as the holiday.
Choosing Your Favorite Christmas Song
Many writers have done a lot of work for you when it comes to heartfelt Christmas sayings. Think about your favorite Christmas song or one you know the card receiver loves. Using a few lyrics from the song reminds them how much you know them, as well as gives them the heartfelt greetings you wish to make.
If you worry using someone else’s words are not enough then use songs, poems, stories, and traditional greetings for inspiration to write your own. A poem doesn’t have to be perfect, it doesn’t have to rhyme it just has to offer your true meanings to the person receiving it. Your friend or family member will enjoy the effort you took to create something that was more than a store bought card.
