    All of us at XY would like to wish you...

    Dear teachers,
    I need your expert help with a sentence; it is a kind of an official Christmas card.

    All of us at (company name) would like to wish you
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    I am concerned about the grammar in the first sentence. I know that "All of us" is correct, but can I place the "at (company name)" right after it? Something seems wrong to me.
    Also I would like to know, whether I should use indefinite articles in front of "Merry" and "Happy". I am aware that Christmas and New Year do not take articles, but would the addition of "merry" make it mean "whatever means merry to you" and therefore making it indefinite?
    I hope it is not very confusing.
    Thank you for your replies.

    That's what I'd write.
