Holiday Greeting Card Messages to Send to Coworkers

Holiday card messages: a card that reads, "Thanks for holding us together"

Colleagues hold a special place in our hearts. Sometimes, we spend so much time with our “work family” they become just like real family, helping us crush deadlines, shatter sales goals, and celebrate at happy hour afterwards. They’ve been with us through late nights and early mornings and, therefore, deserve a nice note during the holiday season.

  • My only wish for you this holiday season is that you don’t have to see my face before 9 a.m. or after 5 p.m. Enjoy this time with your loved ones!
  • You’ve put in an incredible amount of effort this year, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. Have a happy holiday season. See you in the new year!
  • It’s never a dull day with teammates like you. Have a happy holiday with your family, and raise a glass to a prosperous new year!
  • This past year wouldn’t have been half as successful (or nearly as fun) without you. Now enjoy this much-deserved holiday break with your family.
  • Thank you for all your hard work this year. Sending warm wishes to you and your family.
  • You’ve shown a tremendous amount of loyalty, hard work, and dedication. Sending my happiest holiday greetings, and looking forward to what next year has in store.
