Let those who can't be with you know that you are thinking of them as you welcome the new year.

Happy New Year

Ten! Nine! ...Three! Two! One! Happy New Year! Ahh, the countdown that signals the end of another fun, exciting, busy, taxing year. What better way to bring in the new year than by counting down with friends and family?

New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day are great reasons for people to gather together to celebrate all the good that has happened in the past year and to set goals for the next year. These goals are referred to as “New Year’s resolutions.”

After partying the night away with good drinks, fun New Year’s Eve party games, silly hats, and noisemakers, you finally hear the news: the ball is about to drop! Everyone gathers into the room, and then the countdown begins.

At the cue of “Happy New Year,” everyone smooches the one they love, and then the gathering often migrates outside for some awesome fireworks, more drinks, and whatever else the party might bring.

Between all the champagne, fireworks, and kisses, be sure to find time to let your friends and family near and far know how much they mean to you.

Sending Happy New Year Wishes

Much like any other holiday, we must think about those who cannot be with us during these times of celebration. Let’s face it, as much as we want to gather with our entire families and all of our friends for every occasion; it is just not feasible for many.

Whether it is due to finances or time constraints, there are normally good reasons why everyone you love may not be close by during the holiday season.

Although you cannot be with everyone you love, it doesn’t mean you can’t find other ways to be with them in thought. Doing things such as sending gifts, chatting it up on Skype, and sending greeting cards are all terrific ways to say “I’m thinking about you” during the times when you must be apart.

Can’t afford a gift and don’t have the internet? Sending a Happy New Year card still shows that you took the extra time out of your day to really think of them!

What to Write in Your Happy New Year Card

Keep Your Message Personal
