Happy Holiday Greetings: How To Write The Best Wishes for Friends, Family and Businesses

Knowing what to write when sending out holiday greetings to people you admire and love is a very important skill. This is mainly because holidays mean a lot to people around the world. There is no denying that vacations come as a blissful release from all the hustle and bustle that usually mark our daily lives.

Special holidays such as Christmas, Eid al-Fitr, New Year, and Independence Day, are widely celebrated around the world and people look forward to these events for a long time all year-long. This is why we know you don’t want to miss the chance to send holiday greetings to someone dear to you. Apparently, putting a smile on their faces by wishing them well while they go out to have the fun of their lives is one of the most important things you can do for them.

What Is The Meaning Of Happy Holidays?

The term ‘happy holidays’ is simply a broad greeting used during festive seasons to wish family and friends well as they try to make the most of the period to relax and just take time off to wind down from all the hustle of daily living. The term can be used during different festive seasons, including Christmas, New Year,  Eid al-Fitr, Eid al-Adha, and other religious and non-religious celebrations.

If someone you know is celebrating a religious festivity and you don’t know exactly how to greet them, you should use the term ‘happy holidays’ to celebrate with them because it is considered to be the most inclusive and broadest greeting during festive seasons. Saying happy holidays to people you care about is an indication that you understand the significance of the season for them and that you want them to enjoy it to the fullest.

What To Write When Sending Holiday Greetings To Friends

Friends light up the world and that is no understatement at all. The world would almost be meaningless and painfully lonely if there were no friends to keep us company. It is said that good friends are, indeed, great gifts from God and we must treasure their company and do our best to keep them around.

This is why it is of utmost importance to keep in touch, especially when we have parted ways to celebrate festive seasons with our respective families. One of the ways we keep in touch is by exchanging messages to acknowledge the season of celebration.

When Can You Start Saying Happy Holidays?

Many people have often asked when it is right to greet others with the term ‘happy holidays’. The answer is not quite a straightforward one because people’s reactions to this are different. For many people, wishing others happy holidays, especially when it is for Christmas or other religious festive seasons, is something they start doing right from the first week of December. Some others prefer to wait until three or four days to the day before they start saying it.

Also, others say it when meeting people for the last time before the holidays come. The truth is, there is no right or wrong answer to this question. However, it is noteworthy that when festive seasons get close, the air is usually charged with anticipation and, at this point, anyone can start saying happy holidays to family and friends.
