How Do You Wish Your Friends A Happy New Year?

Your friends are important people in your life. They are people who play a huge role in your progress and development. They help you solve your problems, they guide you when you are confused, and they cheer you up when you need it. So, saying the right things to them is very important. Especially, when you are wishing them a happy New Year.

Your tone of writing should always be casual with your friends. They're a part of your personal life, so you don't have to be formal and professional when writing your wishes. Use an everyday, light, and casual tone.

  • Be informal 
You can be as informal as you like when writing Happy New Year wishes for friends. However, it does depend on your relationship with the particular friend. Of course, every friend has an informal kind of communication with you, but the degree of informality varies depending on your bond with them and other factors. For instance, how long you have known them and where you know them from, etc. Be considerate about degree of frankness and your relationship with them. So, write the wish accordingly.

  • Be grateful and add a quick wish for them 
A happy new year's wish is not a favor you're doing for them. It is more of a thoughtful gesture that you remember them and you're grateful for their friendship. In the end, add a quick little wish or prayer for their health and safety. It is always a warm way to end a wish and make it look like you mean it.
