  • "Wishing your family a Merry Christmas".

    That sounds better than the other two.

  • What about a couple? "Wishing you both" ?

  • Not to be a cheeseball, because I'm being serious - but what about just 'Merry Christmas!' It goes without saying that you're "wishing" them that. Then you don't have to deal with "both", "you", "all", etc.

  • because I didn't want the typical "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year" so I reworded the happy new year part and it doesn't sound good without the "wishing " part.... ho hum, maybe I'll rethink it LOL I so totally suck at this stuff, but I like to send out cards.
