Reflections and Change in the New YearThe sentiments offered on Holiday Cards/Christmas Cards vary greatly. Greetings can reflect the seasons religious occasion, celebrate the winter season in general, or be even broader in reflecting a seasonal wish. I haven't noticed as many variations on Happy New Year as a sentiment, most often it is Happy New Year in multiple languages.

There are so many words to use to wish good things upon others and many, many languages around the world to say them in! 

The same sentiment back to you.
