12 Charming Vintage Card Sentiments

The dozen sentiments below were all featured on greeting cards and postcards from the early 20th century. The words and images associated with the cards are now in the public domain and available to crafters everywhere. While there are clearly some differences from modern speech and phrasing in the verses, it's maybe not surprising how little the actual sentiments themselves have changed.  If you're interested, you can check out the card images over on The Graphics Fairy.

card faces

Deck the halls with boughs of holly

Tis the season to be Jolly

Celebrate the day with fun

Merry Christmas everyone!

Wishes for Christmas Cheer


May every Joy that’s seasonable

And every wish that’s reasonable

Be granted to you this Christmas tide.

A Merry Christmas


One simple line will all my wish convey

God have you in His keeping day by day.

With Best Wishes for a Merry Christmas


Whatever is good, whatever is true

Goes with my Christmas wish to you.

A Blissful Christmas to You and Yours


See dear Santa’s jolly face

As he comes on tip toe pace

Bringing with him joy and cheer

For all dear friends both far and near.

May Christmas Joy Fill Your Heart


May all your sweetest hopes come true

And make your Christmas bright for you.

A Jolly Christmas to You


May golden happiness

On times swift wing

Make your Christmas bright.

May All Your Hours Be Winged with Joy


Where’er on Christmas you may be

There may you safely rest

But Home with all its blessedness

On Christmas Day is best.

Wishing You a Merry Christmas


Though it’s cold and gray and cloudy

That can’t make Santa blue

Especially when he is flying

With good wishes straight to you.

Cheery Christmas Greetings


Bright hopes for the Future

Sweet Memories for the Past.

New Year Greetings


Had I all the wishes in the world to give

I’d give them all to you.

May Christmas Bring You Everything That You Are Wishing For


I find it’s very hard to think

Of pretty things to say

So, I’ll just send a loving wish

For a merry Christmas day.

May The Best of Christmas Cheer Be Yours
