Updated: December 31st, 2016

Ringing in the New Year is cause for celebration, for reliving and for looking back. One thing known to be true, is that a lot can happen in a year and between the good, the bad and the ugly, this may seem like an understatement for most.

As glasses are raised and fireworks explode into the sky, it’s important to recognize the special symbolism this holiday brings with it.  A time of new beginnings and fresh starts also comes with it a time of reflection and promises that more often than not tend to be short lived. Whether your resolutions consist of keeping your hands out of the cookie jar or giving your heartfelt word to work on relationships with loved ones, it can make all the difference to put these hopes into words and warm wishes. Seeing is believing.

These Happy New Year messages, well wishes and quotes will remind you to uphold your new year desires, help you fill the blank space in your New Year card and most importantly, share your joy with others this holiday season.
