The Connestee Falls Real Estate Team all join in hopes that this holiday was a great one for you and your family. To help usher in the New Year with a festive spirit, here are a few New Year’s Toasts as compiled by Paul Dickson – who has written a book about toasts.
Happy New Year To All of You From All of Us!
“A song for the old, while its knell is tolled, And its parting moments fly! But a song and a cheer for the glad New Year, While we watch the old year die! – George Cooper
“Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.” – Benjamin Franklin
“Here’s to the bright New Year, And a fond farewell to the old; Here’s to the things that are yet to come, And to the memories that we hold.”
“In the New Year, may your right hand always be stretched out in friendship, but never in want.” – Irish
“In the year ahead, may we treat our friends with kindness and our enemies with generosity.”
“Let us resolve to do the best we can with what we’ve got.” – William Feather
“May this sweetest old-time greeting, heavily laden with good cheer, bring content and peace and plenty, enough to last through all the Year.”
“Ring out the old, ring in the new, Ring happy bells across the snow; The year is going, let him go.” – Alfred Lord Tennyson
“Stir the eggnog, lift the toddy…Happy New Year, Everybody!” – Phyllis McGinley
“Welcome be ye that are here, Welcome all, and make good cheer, Welcome all, another year!”
