Do You Wish Your Loved Ones Well For The New Year?
Preparing for new year’s eve is both tedious and tiring. Organizing parties or preparing to go to one, will surely drain us of our energy so much that we might not think of sending well wishes and kind greetings. But because of modern technologies, things have been a lot easier for us. Unlike decades ago when people sent physical letters earlier to make it to their destinations on time, we can just simply open an app on our cellphones and send whatever message that we want to relay to our loved ones.
There are multiple debates about whether electronic devices have decreased the intimacy of sending messages or not. And most have different opinions about it. But whether we favor the use of modern technologies in sending our best wishes, it does not change the fact that holiday greetings are used to convey our love and sincerity.
Receiving a greeting in any type of celebration is heartwarming. This gesture indicates that the other person thinks of you during the special day. It makes the receiver feel special. Some research has suggested that the experience of having someone hand you a greeting card is generally good for health. Though, not all of us can make some greeting cards or meet our loved ones to tell them our warm wishes, a simple yet meaningful email will do. New year greetings do not need to be grand or poetic. It does not need unnecessary words. To greet a loved one, we must send them something that will reflect our affection in the form of words. It can be a Bible verse, a quote, a line from a song, or a personalized message.
How Do You Write Happy New Year Blessings?
If you are thinking about handing out cards for the new year, then you may be one who wonders what you should write in your greeting card. There are various content types you can select to place on your card. Going for a simple “Happy New Year” is okay, but we want to go the extra mile to show our affection. And that is where giving a physical New Year greeting comes into place. Writing some meaningful messages on your card is the best way to do it since it’s both sentimental and tangible. So, your questions are, what kind of quotes you should choose for each card and if you want to go for a personalized message, what you should write?
The space inside the greeting card is small, and you only need a few lines to fill it. Although it may sound easy, it is truly the opposite. In fact, writing a few lines is more difficult than writing for a whole page of bond paper. Why? Because the few lines in your greeting card represent your feelings towards the recipient. The need for it to be short and meaningful makes it harder to choose what to write. There are three things that you should remember when it comes to writing your new year card.
- The first is to jot down some notes of what you want to relay. Write if you want the person to know how much you love him/her.
- Second, prioritize sincerity. Of course, we want our greetings to sound witty and fun. But sincerity beats these two.
- Third, writing a “P.S” will surely spice your greeting!

And new year blessings will certainly overwhelm both the receiver and the sender with happiness.
Wishing someone happiness makes us remember how he or she has made us happy as well. We reminisce the time that the person we are writing to gave us this elusive feeling and our desire to reciprocate it.
