Holiday Wishes

We wish for you a holiday

Overflowing with holiday spirit

 And when it's done, We hope that you
 Live happily ever after!

Toward the End of the Year

Toward the end of the year
as the holidays approach,
anticipation builds,
happiness increases,
our joy quotient goes way up,
smiles and laughter abound.
Part of that happiness and joy
is thinking of you during the holidays,
thankful to know you.
Happy Holidays!

Children's holiday poems can be written from a child's point of view, as this holiday message is. 

Child Holiday Poem

My mom is cooking holiday treats;
 My dad is spending money;
 They think they've hidden all the gifts;
 It's really pretty funny.

Now Mom and Dad are whispering;
 They imagine I don't hear.
 I'm really all excited;
 It's a happy time of year.

I've made my holiday gift list;
 Whatever I get, I'll be glad
 To be a part of my family,
 And the best holiday I've had!

By Joanna Fuchs

Holiday sentiments are usually given to people you care about. This holiday greeting card saying is designed for that purpose. 

Joyful Holiday

At this sparkling, joyful time of year,
 We think of people who are special and dear;
 We’re sending this poem in the hopes it conveys
 Our best wishes for your Happy Holidays!

By Joanna Fuchs

Holiday poems can include all three end-of-year holidays, as this holiday saying does.

Three Holidays

The end of the year brings a special gift:
 Three holidays give our spirits a lift.
 Thanksgiving, (Christmas/Hannukah/Other holiday) and New Year’s, too,
 May they bring lots of joy and pleasure to you.

Happy Holidays!

Here's a general holiday poem to fit a lot of different applications. It's a holiday saying for cards, but it could also serve on a thank you note or gift tag.

Holiday Time 

It's holiday time,
That great time of year,
Recalling good times
With those near and dear. 

You're special to us
All the year through.
You’re often in our thoughts;
Happy Holidays to you! 

By Joanna Fuchs 

If you’re sending this short holiday poem to one person, you can change the second line to "A more special person is hard to find."

Holiday Thoughts

For this holiday, you’re on my mind.
More special people it’s hard to find.
I hope you’re filled with holiday glow.
I treasure you and want you to know.

By Joanna Fuchs

This holiday poem is also a holiday prayer. 

A Holiday Prayer

I pray for you this holiday
 That all your dreams come true;
 I pray the Lord will bless your life
 All the New Year through.

I pray your holiday gives you all
 That you’ve been hoping for,
 Health, comfort, peace and love,
 These blessings and much more.
