We don’t much send New Year greetings anymore. I suspect the proximity of Christmas to New Year’s dampens the desire to address cards and write letters. In our modern society, sending Christmas cards is almost a rarity anymore. Younger generations find them wasteful, Gen Xers want to send them but instead deal with the guilt of not sending them, and Baby Boomers send the most tacky, glittery cards they can find. :-)
But, if you are not Christian or don’t celebrate Christmas, there is no reason you must refrain from sending a winter greeting to friends and family. Here’s a nice wish for luck from Anna Kennedy sent to Will Morley Jr of Chicago. She wrote:
With love and best wishes for a thrice happy New Year to yourself and Mrs Morley, I am your sincere friend.
What a heartfelt and sentimental greeting!
This one is a folded card, but it’s blank inside.
I hope you enjoyed the series of Christmas cards and these New Year’s greetings. I fell off a bit at the end of Christmas, so will have to save those treasures for next year!
