1. Happy Holiday Out of Office replies

Unfortunately Santa is out of the office, and since I’m his back-up I won’t be able to get back to you until after Christmas. Ho ho ho!

Hey there, for me it’s the most wonderful time of the year. That’s why I will be enjoying some time off. I will see you next year!

Oh Deer, I’m out of office until <date>. Merry Everything and a Happy Always!

I’m driving home for Christmas, oh I can’t wait to see those faces …
when I get back at the office on <date>.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, so it’s beginning to look like I have a few days off. Please be aware that I will be out of office from <date> to <date>. Merry Everything!

Ho-ho-holidays are coming and I’m out of office. See you next year!

Hi, I’m rocking around the Christmas tree. So I’m having so much fun and won’t be able to answer your emails until <date>. I will see you next year!

2. Dutch Out of Office replies

Dankjewel voor je e-mail. Ik ben de jackpot van de Oudejaarsloterij aan het uitgeven. Als ik op <datum> nog niet heb gereageerd, weet je dat ik ‘m echt heb gewonnen. Fijne kerstvakantie.

Op dit moment kan ik niet op je mail reageren, want ik doe mee aan de “wie eet er de meeste kerstkransjes-challenge”. Tot in het nieuwe jaar!

Ik ben oliebollen bakken, dus ik heb mijn handen vol 🙂 Fijne feestdagen en een sprankelende jaarwisseling!

3. Sarcastic Out of Office replies

Had a great idea for my Out of Office reply, aaaand it’s gone. Back on <date>.

Hey there, I am currently making people happy by playing Santa at a local shopping mall. I will get back to you after <date>.

You think I won’t read your email until I get back at the office, don’t you? The truth is that during the holidays I will be checking my email every time I get bored with the conversations over Christmas dinner. But I am taking the liberty not to reply before <date>. Happy Holidays!

4. New Year Out of Office replies

My New Year’s resolution is to reply to your email as soon as I’m back at the office on <date>.

Hi, thank you for joining the Best Wishes competition. Wish me something nice for 2017, and win a personal reply from me when I return to the office on <date> Winning guaranteed 😉 Happy Holidays!

Vacation mood on! See you in 2017.
