Senden Sie doch mal Grüße zum Jahresbeginn anstatt Weihnachtskarten

Send New Year’s messages instead of Christmas cards

Schaffen Sie es nicht, IhreWeihnachtspost rechtzeitig zu erledigen? Oder haben Sie einen wichtigen Kunden vergessen? Schicken Sie doch einfach Grüße zum Jahresbeginn. Mit einem Brief oder einer Karte können Sie Ihren Kunden alles Gute für 2008 wünschen und sich auf die weitere Zusammenarbeit freuen.


In the business world, New Year’s cards and letters are becoming a popular alternative to traditional Christmas cards, especially for different cultures that do not celebrate Christmas. As well as saying thank you to your business partners for their cooperation in the past year, you can wish them health and happiness and you can look forward to working with them in the future.

Here are some ideas for your New Year’s messages


1 A formal and friendly New Year’s message

Dear Mr Osborne

On behalf of our company I would like to thank you for the successful cooperation during the past year. I do hope that we will be working together again closely this year and in many years to come. I look forward to making strategic plans with you in 2008 that will give both our companies an outlook long beyond the projects we are already working on so successfully.

Let me also wish you and your family the very best, with health and good fortune in the year to come.

Best regards



2 Congratulating a start-up

Dear Margaret

Once again, we have started a new year. I hope you had a few days of peace and quiet over the holidays to relax and recuperate from the workload of the pre-Christmas season. You certainly deserved it!

Let me congratulate you on your company’s highly successful business development over the past year. We were delighted to see how well you did in spite of the overall difficult market situation. Not many start-ups would have been able to face the odds as well as you did under these circumstances. You have every right to be proud of yourself and your staff for this extraordinary achievement.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and everyone in your company continued success and growth in 2008. And I look forward to cooperating on the many projects we have planned together.

With kind regards



3 A short, simple and original New Year’s message

Dear Bill

12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days. And each of them different! That’s what we have behind us. And 2008 is a leap year, which means we have even one more day ahead to look forward to. Let’s make the coming year as fulfilling and successful for us as the last one was. I wish you and your family a great start to
2008 and success and happiness throughout the whole year.

Warm regards
