Write personal greetings, a quote or an inspirational message when creating Christmas wishes in a holiday card. Christmas wishes only take a few minutes to jot down by hand. Lengthier Christmas wishes, such as those printed as a holiday newsletter, initially take longer to create but are fast to photocopy.
- Obtain a Christmas card
Buy a package of holiday cards or make your own cards at home out of construction paper, card stock or other materials. For a more personal touch, use a photograph to design a card at home or at a photo processing shop.
- Write Christmas wishes
Write "A merry Christmas and a happy New Year" for a classic, simple greeting when pressed for time. Include more personal thoughts toward the recipient in a longer greeting, mentioning the receiver's family. Write a loving holiday quote to fill blank space or help express a sentiment, such as Charles Dickens's, "I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year."
- Write a holiday newsletter
Type a holiday newsletter, print it out, and include it inside the Christmas cards. Write an update about work, family and special highlights from the year. Include wishes for a happy holiday. Give the letter a holiday letterhead or a Christmas border to make it look more festive.
- Send the card
Fold the card, including the newsletter if applicable, and insert it in the envelope. Address the envelope, include proper postage, and mail the card.
