Check out today’s Teatime Titbit: Xmas Mail

 

As may know, sending Xmas cards is a BIG thing in the UK especially when it comes to family, relatives (Verwandte), friends and even acquaintances (Bekannte) with specialised greeting card chains like www.cardfactory.co.uk etc. are full of Xmas cards from the traditional to comical (often using ‘play on word’ (Wortspiel) catch phrases see Friday) and simple cards (picture/verse), large sized cards, personalised cards to even musical ones.

If you are thinking of sending cards this year or waiting for the last-minute mail, you’ll probably be wondering what exactly you can write. Here are 2 I prepared earlier:

Dear ….(so-and-so)

Wishing you (all/both) a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

All the best for 2017.

Yours etc

Dave.

 

If you’re looking for a more professional message: Here goes

 

Dear …..(so-and-so)

All of us at Business English Coaching would like to wish you (all at Hawkins Consulting) a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

We look forward to 2017 and a continuing successful cooperation

Yours …

Hope they help. I highly recommend you send out Xmas cards to business as well as privately because they are very much appreciated. As the saying goes ‘It’s the thought that counts’ (Der gute Wille zählt).
