It’s the holiday season all around! It the time to send spread the joy of the season with some favorite holiday greeting cards, wishing your near and dear ones, happy holidays!
“When Christmas bells are swinging above the fields of snow, we hear sweet voices ringing from lands of long ago, and etched on vacant places are half-forgotten faces of friends we used to cherish, and loves we used to know.”
– Ella Wheeler Wilcox
In our daily schedule which demands too much of our attention and commitment, it so happens that we tend to lose the sight of faces which were once a part of our everyday life! This is not something that we do on purpose, it’s just that at times, our necessities become more dominating over our priorities. With Christmas around the corner, the entire neighborhood is filled with decorations, fancy lights, mistletoes, candies, cakes, candles, and snowmen… doesn’t all of this remind you of the holidays that you spent in the past as kids and young adults? Remember the old school buddies without whom life seemed to be so incomplete. The pranks that were planned to irritate the neighbors, the surprises that were a part of the holiday season, the fun you had with the important people in your life which are no longer as close (in terms of distance) as they used to be? Although the fact that they are not around you this Christmas season can be depressing, the good news is that you can always send them some interesting holiday greeting card sayings, that can let them know that you miss them this holiday season as always and therefore, you are sending across your best wishes on the occasion.
Good Holiday Greeting Card Sayings
Many a time, it so happens that we want to write a lot but, always tend to run short of words. The holiday messages mentioned below will help you in framing out just the right words for holiday season greetings this year.
“The day ends with a night full of stars
that never appeared so prettier than before.
Each twinkling star is passed along to you with a special wish;
That all the days you live could be like Christmas.”
– Author Unknown
“Whatever else be lost among the years, Let us keep Christmas still a shining thing: Whatever doubts assail us, or what fears, Let us hold close one day, remembering its poignant meaning for the hearts of men. Let us get back our childlike faith again.”
– Grace Noll Crowell
“Time was with most of us, when Christmas Day, encircling all our limited world like a magic ring, left nothing out for us to miss or seek; bound together all our home enjoyments, affections, and hopes; grouped everything and everyone round the Christmas fire, and make the little picture shining in our bright young eyes, complete.”
– Charles Dickens
“Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first. The birth of the baby Jesus stands as the most significant event in all history, because it has meant the pouring into a sick world of the healing medicine of love which has transformed all manner of hearts for almost two thousand years. Underneath all the bulging bundles is this beating Christmas heart.”
– George Mathew Adams
“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”
– Dr. Seuss
“As the Holiday Season is upon us, we find ourselves reflecting on the past year and on those who have helped to shape our business in a most significant way. We value our relationship with you and look forward to working with you in the year to come. We wish you a very happy Holiday Season and a New Year filled with peace and prosperity.”
– Author Unknown
“Christmas–that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance – a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved.”
– Augusta E. Rundel
“Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and the traveler, thousands of miles away, back to his own fire-side and his quiet home!”
– Charles Dickens from The Pickwick Papers
“Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself…”
– Norman Wesley Brooks from “Let Every Day Be Christmas”
A man is at his finest towards the finish of the year;
He is almost what he should be when the Christmas season’s here;
Then he’s thinking more of others than he’s thought the months before,
And the laughter of his children is a joy worth toiling for.
He is less a selfish creature than at any other time;
When the Christmas spirit rules him he comes close to the sublime…”
– Edgar Guest
“Somehow, not only for Christmas,
But all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others,
Is the joy that comes back to you.
And the more you spend in blessing,
The poor and lonely and sad,
The more of your heart’s possessing,
Returns to you glad.”
– John Greenleaf Whittier
“The merry family gatherings-
The old, the very young;
The strangely lovely way they
Harmonize in carols sung.
For Christmas is tradition time-
Traditions that recall
The precious memories down the years,
The sameness of them all.”
– Helen Lowrie Marshall
“I love the Christmas-tide, and yet,
I notice this, each year I live;
I always like the gifts I get,
But how I love the gifts I give!”
– Carolyn Wells
