These heartwarming holiday wishes remind us of what Christmas is all about. Spending money on someone is nice, but spending time with them is nicer.
Honey, it’s never easy to say goodbye. I can’t bear the thought of being without you. Please come back soon, and we can be together again. I wish you a safe return!
Darling, I’m so happy you get to travel again but honestly, I wish I were going with you. I am already missing you. Please, have a safe trip back home.
I’m going to miss you so much while you’re gone. I love you and can’t wait to see you soon.
I’m so excited that you’re going on this trip! You’re going to have so much fun. Knowing that you’ll be happy makes me happy, even though I’m going to miss you so much.
I love you with a love that spans the world. But that doesn’t mean you can stay away forever. I can’t wait to see you again.
Have fun but come back soon! Every day that you’re gone feels like an entire year.
I will miss your beautiful, smiling face every day that you’re gone.
My dearest, you are the sun in my life. And now, the sun is going away on an awesome trip. So while you’re gone, my world will be like night, but I look forward to your return when the sun will rise again. Have a great trip sweetheart!
I love you and will miss you and hope you return safely and bring me lots of presents!
Have an awesome trip sweetheart! I’m going to miss you so much while you’re gone, so don’t forget me as you’re having fun.
Next time, we need to do a trip together. But I’ll allow this one without me. :) Have a great trip.
Don’t worry—the house is safe with me while you’re gone. Expect nothing but clean sheets and washed dishes when you get back, all a testament to how bored I was without you. Love you and have a great trip!
I’m going to be following your every move on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, so don’t try to hide anything! ;-) I will miss you until the day you come back!
Each day you’re gone will feel like an eternity. And how am I supposed to watch any of our shows without you? Have a great trip and come back soon!
You’re going to have such an awesome trip—I will be thinking of you often as you’re out exploring the world.
Think of me fondly as you’re out there in the world! I will be thinking of you here as I sit and drink coffee at our table, waiting for your return.
I know you’re going off on a big adventure, but don’t expect me to just sit around and do nothing while you’re gone. I’m going to have fun too! (But mostly I’ll be missing you).
They say distance makes the heart grow fonder and I’m sure I’m going to grow very fond of you while you’re off on your trip.
I will love you more each day you’re gone and even more when you return.

A blessing is a thing that leads to happiness or helps bring good things to you. A common holiday greeting phrase using the word “blessing” is “seasons’s blessings.”
You may also see the term “to count your blessings,” meaning to stop and take time to be thankful for the good things in your life.
How would you use apply this to a business holiday greeting? Try saying something like, “This time of year compels us to count our blessings—and among them are good customers like you.”
The holiday season is a time of celebration. Celebration occurs when people do enjoyable or special things in honor of the holidays. So instead of just writing, “Happy Holidays,” add your own personal holiday wishes to the phrase and show that you are celebrating this year. You might write something like, “In celebration of the holiday season…”
What do you feel when you appreciate having something? Gratitude. Since you want to send your business associates, clients or customers a holiday greeting, I’m thinking that you appreciate them and want to tell them so.
Do that with a phrase like this, “I would like to express my sincere gratitude for your business over the past year.”
Include the phrase in a sentence like this, “As we at (the name of your company) look back over 2015, we remember with sincere gratitude our friendly and faithful customers. Customers like you.”
You can also use the word “grateful” and write something like, “We are grateful for friendly and faithful customers like you.”
Happiness is the feeling of pleasure and excitement that you have because of your life or general situation. While the holiday season isn’t reserved for happiness, it is a time when people tend to wish people happiness.
Here’s how. You can write, “Everyone here at (the name of your company) sends you best wishes for happiness, health and prosperity throughout 2016.”
Or, you can write, “I hope the New Year brings you health and happiness.”
Here’s yet another option, “We send our warmest wishes for health and happiness.”
The state of being free from illness is health. Wishing people health during the holiday season is common and often goes with the word “happiness.”
Just take a look at the sentences under “happiness” to see how often the two words are used together.
If you want to say something a bit different try this, “We wish you the gifts of love, friendship and good health.”
What is the word for feelings of great happiness? Joy.
Spread wishes of joy by spicing up your business holiday greetings with a phrase like “small daily joys.” All you have to do is add it to your wish for a year of health and happiness.
You can also use the word joy to talk about the season, “May the beauty and joys of the season stay with you during the whole year.”
The opposite of war is peace. Partner this word with “happiness” as in “Wishing you a new year of peace and happiness.”
You can also use this word in a greeting like this, “Wishing you the gifts of the season—Peace, Joy and Hope.
When you have a feeling of happiness, enjoyment, or satisfaction you are feeling pleasure.
Try spicing up this sentence that I already gave you: “This Holiday Season we wish to extend our warmest greetings and best wishes for a New Year full of happiness and health.”
Here’s my recommendation for using the word “pleasure” in this sentence: “It’s our pleasure this Holiday Season to extend our warmest greetings and best wishes for a New Year full of happiness and health.”
Ahh, prosperity. Something that many people strive for. Oh, let me back up. What’s prosperity? It’s what you have when you’re successful, usually because you’ve made lots of money.
These are business greetings after all, so it’s common to wish people prosperity.
Use this word in a phrase like this: “May your year be filled with happiness, health, and prosperity.”
You can also wish that people “have aprosperous new year.“
When you show that you are happy about something, you are rejoicing. You are celebrating job.
Open your greeting with a phrase like, “As we rejoice in the magic of the holiday season…”
Then follow that happy idea with your personal message.
Remembrance is the act of thinking back about a person, thing or event. How can you use this in your holiday greetings?
Well, you can use another form of the word and say, “Remembering you this holiday season.”
While you might think of spring, summer, autumn and winter when you hear this word, English speakers also use it to talk about particular periods of time during the year in general. You know, like football season, baseball season or beach season. Well, as you’ve seen, we often talk about the holiday season as well.
You can use this word in phrases like:
“All the best of the season.”
“Compliments of the season.”
“Magic of the holiday season.”
“Wishes for a joyous season.”
“Have a wonderful holiday season.”
Just take your pick!
Serenity is a feeling of calm and peacefulness.
Add this word to wishes of joy and health by writing, “We’re wishing you joy, health and serenity this holiday season.”
A person achieves success when they meet their goals. The goal may be to obtain wealth, respect or fame. You can also achieve personal success and professional success that is measured by something important to you personally.
Wishing your business acquaintances success is similar to wishing them prosperity.
Vary your holiday greeting by sending wishes of continued success.
Write something similar to this, “Wishing you a season of joy and continued success in 2016.”
In holiday greetings, English people use the word “wishes” or some form of it to say that we want whatever follows the word to happen to the person to whom we are writing.
For example, you can write, “wishes for a joyous season,” “wishing you happiness and health,” “wishing you continuing success” or anything similarly positive. What do you wish for your business acquaintances? Just put it after the word “wish.”
Those are the 15 words we have for you this year.
Good luck writing your own holiday greetings!

Ever wondered what to say on Rosh Hashanah when you meet a Jewish person? Here's what you need to know.
The Jewish new year is not just a time to renew our resolve to lose another fifteen pounds. Rather, it’s the time when our fate stands in the balance as G‑d reviews our past year and decides whether or not to renew our lease on His planet. As such, Jewish greetings for this time of year (the Jewish New Year is in the fall) reflect our prayers for a good, sweet year up ahead.
The catch-all greeting you can use for the entire season is “Shanah tovah” (שנה טובה), which means “Good year.” The word “u’metuka” (ומתוקה), and sweet, is sometimes appended to the end.
Here are some other greetings that you may hear:
Before Rosh Hashanah, people wish each other “Ketivah v’chatima tovah”(כתיבה וחתימה טובה) “A good inscription and sealing [in the Book of Life].” On Rosh Hashanah eve, as we return from synagogue service, it is traditional to greet one another with “Leshana tovah tikatev v’tichatem” (לשנה טובה תכתב ותחתם). When greeting a female, this is modified to“Leshana tovah tikatevee v’tichatemee” (לשנה טובה תכתבי ותחתמי). This means, “May you be written and sealed for a good year.”
From noon on Rosh Hashanah, when our fates are already written, until Yom Kippur, when our fates for the coming year are to be sealed, we wish each other “Gemar chatimah tovah” (גמר חתימה טובה), “A good final sealing.” (Note that it is not standard to wish someone a “happy Yom Kippur,” but it is perfectly acceptable to wish them a meaningful one.)
Now for the Yiddish version: The standard wish is for “A gut gebentsht yohr,” “A good and blessed year” (א גוט געבענטשט יאהר). And since tradition tells us that our fate is not really sealed until Hoshanah Rabba, the customary salutation for that day is “A gutten kvittl” (א גוט'ן קוויטל), “A good inscription.”
No matter what we say, the main thing is to wish each other a good, sweet year with all our heart – because that is what G‑d values the most.
