Adding a personalized slant to a holiday card greeting can help make this writing process easier. For example, if the writer knows that the person to whom the card is addressed has a newborn baby, it is perfectly appropriate to add a message such as "best wishes for baby's first Christmas!" in with more generalized holiday greetings.
