Sending holiday greetings: Dear words from your vacation

No matter whether you are lying on the beach, enjoying the all-inclusive hotel or taking a city trip with numerous cultural offers: you want to tell about it and send holiday greetings. Every greeting from vacation is also an implicit one: “I think of you, you are particularly important to me!” After all, not every friend and person who stayed at home receives a vacation greeting from around the globe.

Anyone who receives holiday greetings is always happy. Nevertheless, you want to do your best to find nice words and a suitable form. But how should you send holiday greetings? There are various options to choose from:

  • postcard
    The absolute classic you can't go wrong with. A nice postcard with motifs from your holiday destination is a popular way to send holiday greetings back home. Even better if you have visited the depicted places yourself and can tell about them. The downside is that you have to find the postage stamp and mailbox and it can take longer for the card to arrive.
  • Whatsapp
    Send holiday greetings quickly and in a modern way via Whatsapp. Here you can take a suitable photo yourself or take a selfie and add a suitable greeting. No costs and shipping is immediate - however, a postcard in hand can look more personal and can even be held as a souvenir.
  • e-mail
    As an alternative to Whatsapp, holiday greetings can also be sent by email. This can be useful if, for example, you are sending a circular email to the entire team at work and want to send everyone the same message from their vacation. Postcards or Whatsapp are better suited for individual holiday greetings.
  • Call
    You can also deliver holiday greetings by phone. However, this is usually more of a complement to a written greeting. That means: You send a card or a greeting via Whatsapp and also call to report directly from your vacation.

So that you can find the right words for your holiday greetings, we have put together numerous beautiful examples and formulations for you in the overview:
