Finally, how to sign off on your New Year’s card:
There are two ways to sign off in a greeting. You can use the plural version of your last name, e.g. The O’Connors, or you can use a singular version of your surname plus the word “family”, e.g. The O’Connor Family.
If you choose to go with “the …… Family” version, you’re done. Just put your surname before the word “Family”!
If you’d like to make your surname plural, see our handy graphic below.
Most surnames, simply adding an ‘s’ to the end makes them plural, even if they end in constonants like the Constantino family. However, for names that end in -ch, -s, -sh, -x and -z, you need to add -es to make them plural. All rules have an exception, and in this case, if your surname ends in -ch but is pronounced with a hard /k/ sound, like in the surname Monarch or Bohmbach, add only an -s, not an -es.
That’s it! Just add “the” in front of your pluralised surname and your signature is complete.
**Remember – never use an apostrophe to make your surname plural **
We hope you found something lovely and inspiring to use in your New Year’s cards this year. When in doubt, keep it short and sweet. Also, don’t be afraid to enlist the help of your children in the process. The younger ones can always add a fun doodle to the card and the older ones can help you address and seal the envelopes.
