CHRISTMAS WISHES & MESSAGES

A GUIDE TO WRITING THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS CARD

The bells are jingling, the house is covered in glitter and The Pogues are on every radio station. It must be Christmas. And, just to top things off, you're likely receiving cards from neighbours and loved ones wishing you a merry old time.

Whether you're a fan of Christmas cards or not you'll probably be sending one or two to your close family and friends, at least. Because let's be honest, it would be rude-olf you not to.

Cards are an always thoughtful way to send a message during the festive season. While you can add "Merry Christmas" to your email signature or share a 'Happy Xmas' over text, a Christmas card filled with sentimental Christmas wishes is a much better way to say 'I care'.

Our guide has the perfect Christmas greetings for any situation - from funny Christmas quotes to Christmas wishes for friends and loved ones.

Classic Christmas Wishes

From festive quotes to caring words, these messages are perfect for friends or family in the run-up to Christmas. Get your best pen ready!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!
It's easy to get lost in the flurry of activity during Christmas time. May you get chance to take in the beauty and true meaning of the season and have a Merry Christmas!
Tis the season to be jolly!
Have yourself a Merry little Christmas, let your heart be light.
May this Christmas season bring you closer to all those that you treasure in your heart. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!
I hope Santa is good to you this year because you only deserve the best. Merry Christmas from our family to yours.
Take nothing for granted and be thankful that you have such great family and friends to spend this joyous season with. Wishing you a delightful Christmas.
Wishing you and your family health, happiness, peace and prosperity this Christmas and in the coming New Year.

Festive Family Messages

Family Christmas cards are great for sending to the relatives you won't get a chance to see during the season - so let's get the message right and be a little... Santa-mental (we're sorry).

The best present one can hope for this year is to spend time together. I can't wait to celebrate Christmas with you.
What can be better than opening presents, eating food and singing Christmas music? Doing all those things with family like you.
Best wishes to you and your family this Christmas. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Another year has passed us by and we hope that you and yours have a wonderful Christmas and get everything you wish for.
Merry Christmas to you and the kids! Hope it's a fun one with minimal stress (who are we kidding?!)

Christmas Greetings: Verses

For when you just don't have the words, let others fill the card for you. These are some great verses which are sure to be a hit.

Gin-gle bells
Gin-gle bells
Gin-gle all the way
Oh what fun it is to drink
On a festive holiday.
Christmas time is oh so near
Children so excited you can hear them cheer
Enthusiasm and excitement fill the air
And people show love in how they care.
Take the time to enjoy the season
And be thankful for the reason.

Catherine Pulisfer
Christmas is forever,
Not for just one day.
For loving, sharing, giving,
Are not to put away.
Like bells and lights and tinsel,
in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others,
Is good you do yourself.

Norman W. Brooks
