New Year’s Eve is almost here and everyone is still in a holiday mood after all the Christmas festivities. It’s time to party with family and friends, and wish everyone around you a happy New Year.
On top of all the celebrations, it’s also the perfect time to wish the people in your life the best for the year to come by sending a special New Year’s card.
You may want your card to reflect everything that’s happened over the past year. But, more importantly, you’ll want to send your friends and family positive vibes for the year ahead and tell them how much you’re looking forward to making more great memories with them in 2023.
The right message can make all the difference and as there’s so much you could say, you may be wondering just what to write. Never fear, by following our guide to writing the best happy New Year’s card, you’ll soon find some inspiration.
Why send a New Year’s card
A New Year’s card is a good way for you to recall the most memorable moments of 2022 and share them with your loved ones. You can also cast your thoughts to the coming year and all the fresh experiences that you hope it will bring.
A New Year is a time to consider the ambitions, dreams, and goals you would like to achieve in the next 12 months. Send a card that will inspire your loved ones and remind them that you’re there for them, now and in the future. Let them know how thankful you are for their friendship, love, and support.
New Year fun fact
The birth of the first baby of the New Year has been celebrated since around 600 BC. In Ancient Greece, the new baby would be paraded around a town or village to honor the God of Fertility and Wine, Dionysus.
Writing something from the heart
Make sure that the people in your life realize how much you value them by writing something wholehearted in your New Year’s card. You could reminisce about the things they have achieved and wish them luck in any new adventures. Or, perhaps highlight the memories you’ve made together and tell them how excited you are to make even more in 2023.
Let your loved ones know how grateful you are that they are around and that you’re looking forward to spending time with them next year.
A few examples include:
“A special New Year’s wish for a very special person – I hope that all your dreams come true for you in the year to come.”
“May 2023 be filled with all the sunshine and happiness that you deserve – Happy New Year.”
“Here’s to making as many fun and wonderful memories in 2023 as we did in 2022 – I am so blessed to have you in my life.”
“Happy New Year to my gorgeous family, who brighten up my life every day of the year. I hope that 2023 brings you everything you hope for.”
Writing something funny
If you’d rather send a New Year’s card that’s humorous, make them laugh by recalling the funny and/or embarrassing memories and moments you shared in 2022. Remind them that even though the year may change, they’ll still be the same goofball you know and love.
Here are some ideas for you:
“Happy New Year, Bro/Sis. Can’t wait to start annoying you all over again for another whole year!”
“Happy 2023 – here’s hoping all your worries last as long as your New Year’s resolutions usually do!”
“Here’s to a New Year filled with happiness, positivity, and hope (I would rather have fame, wealth, and buckets of champagne, but I’ll take what I can get).”
“A New Year and new beginnings – I’m looking forward to breaking all our resolutions together again and having some more fun in 2023.”
“I hope your New Year brings you happiness, joy, and love because let’s be honest, your crying face is not a good look.”
“I promise this year that I won’t let you do too many stupid things alone. Happy New Year, my Partner in Crime!”
