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.

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
