Every year, do you mechanically write out your Christmas cards at the last minute, using the same message for everybody, while getting a sore wrist?
Do you write “Merry Christmas and best wishes for the coming year, love from…” Even if that is what the card’s verse basically says?
Or do you cringe when you have selected or made a beautiful blank card that needs a message? If you would like to saysomething more poetic and personalised, then Just the Right Christmas Words could be what you need.
Judith Wibberley has created a selection of messages that you can use for your festive cards and invitations, to make the people who receive them feel special. She includes a variety of wording for Christmas and New Year greetings in both prose and in verse. There are messages for loved ones and different relatives, including families who have a new child.
Judith also writes for friends who are living overseas or serving in the armed forces. She includes a special section for Christian messages and for writing to Jewish friends celebrating Hanukkah. So as is noted on page 155 of Just the Right Christmas Words,“This Christmas, Spend a little, Laugh a lot, And enjoy.”
You can reserve Just the Right Christmas Words through the online catalogue or enquire when you visit the Library.
