Just like when a person gets married, it is a special occasion; even retirement is a special occasion. Retirement means you are going to be free after a long time, and do not have to think about work and earning or think about financial distress anymore. Your time has come finally to relax in your life. Retirement is special, and it is also that time in life when everyone you have worked for, like your children and family, to give you something in return.
The dichotomy of retirement is that though it is a happier occasion in life, there is also a reason to be sad. A person now just has to stay at home and not enjoy the importance of being a working member. They usually do not get the respect they had from their juniors at work and so on. The boredom is something that has to be dealt with; and also retirement reminds a person of their age. The more the people congratulate you, the more you begin to think about your age. It makes you feel old and useless.
In order to make a person feel good about their retirement, it is a good idea to give them a funny card that will make them smile or laugh. You can make your own card or by and add a line of your own.
Here are some nice witty and cheerful quotes that you can add to a retirement card.
