Hope you'll be delighted

with all that Christmas has in store,

And may you find the New Year

brings all you're hoping for.


These wishes aren't original

But still they're most sincere,

Have a really Merry Christmas

And a wonderful New Year.


Christmas time wishes

For warmth and good cheer

Happiness now and in the New Year.


After the gifts have been opened

After the tree is gone

After the carols have faded

May the happiness linger on.

It's just the perfect time to send

A lot of love your way,

And then to add some wishes

For a Merry Christmas Day.


Hope your day is filled

with festive cheer,

Wishing you a Merry Christmas

and a Happy New Year.


Christmas comes but once a year,

Our greeting sent with festive cheer!



Thinking of you on Christmas Day

and sending love and wishes your way

for a wonderful Christmas filled with love

and all the things you're dreaming of!
