Most of us find your favorite New Year’s holiday. And no wonder, since this festival connects us with the childhood, family and something fabulous in the New Year, we always believe in the best, make a wish, we summarize achievements and look forward to the coming year. As they say, to receive, you must first give. And wanting to better yourself, be sure to wish the best to your family and friends.
Besides pleasant wishes for a glass of champagne for New Year’s table, you can congratulate those who did not meet with you this holiday via postcards.
Postcard can be both electronic and present, in the envelope, just like old times. 🙂
I think it would be logical to start with the appeals. Let’s start with the official.
If you refer to male colleagues, at your disposal there are several options:
- Mr. — Used to refer to a man of any age and any family situation. After this treatment, you must put the name of the man.
Dear Mr. Smith — Dear Mr. Smith.
- Sir (sirs — plural) — you can consume if you do not know the names of the recipient.
Dear Sir — dear sir.
- Messrs — appeal to more men.
Messrs Adamson and Hoggarth.
If your colleague (fellow) — women, then you need to use the following forms:
- Miss — a form of treatment in relation to unmarried girls. Next, you need to use her name.
Dear Miss MacAdam — dear Miss McAdam.
- Mrs — Refers to married ladies, and after — the surname.
Dear Mrs Benson — dear Mrs. Benson.
- Ms. — Neutral form of treatment, which is used in reference to a woman, and underlines its family status. After it also put the name.
Ms. Austin — Ms. Austen.
- Madam — the most formal form of address for a woman, is also used, if the name is not known.
Dear Madam — dear Madame (Mrs.).
- Mesdames (Mmes + names) — treatment of women in the plural.
Other treatment options in relation to his colleagues:
- Strictly formal style: My dear Sir / My dear Madam / Madam.
- Less strict official style: Dear Sir / Dear Madam.

If you refer to your friends, your family or loved ones:
- Dear Harry — Harry dear.
- Dearest George — George dear.
- My darling (my sweet) — my dear (in handling the closest any pleasant epithets welcome :-)).
- Or you can put in circulation only the name of the recipient.
