    Question Suggestion for a formal Christmas greeting

    I wish to prepare a formal greeting message (about 3-4 sentences) to my colleagues wishing health and success at work in the forthcoming year. Could you please suggest me some sentences which are somehow charming and creative.

    Thank you in advance

    Welcome to the Forum, etrader.
    It would be a good idea for you to compose the message and post it here. Someone will be happy to comment on it. IMO, charming and formal in the context of a Christmas or New Year greeting are mutually exclusive.

    Smile Re: Suggestion for a formal Christmas greeting

    Thank you for your warm welcome. I am thinking of something like

    Dear Colleague,

    I wish you a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I wish you and your family a healthy, fruitful and prosperous year full of success.



    This is just a raw idea :)

    Re: Suggestion for a formal Christmas greeting

    Unless you know for sure that all of your colleagues are Christian and celebrate Christmas, it's better to keep your message more generic, like:

    I wish you and your family all the best this holiday season, with hopes for a healthy and prosperous 2011!

    Thanks for noting this important point. Do you have any idea to expand this message longer than one single sentence?
