Writing and sending Christmas cards each year to family, friends, and other loved ones, is a great way to say hello and to share your love during the holiday season, especially if your loved ones are also celebrating Christmas themselves. Whether you have decided to make all of the Christmas cards you plan to send out yourself or if you are just looking for ideas on what to write in a Christmas card that you have purchased, there are a few routes you can take depending on your relationship with the recipient and also your own personality and the message you want to relay.
Writing a Christmas card from scratch can be heartfelt and just off of the top of your head, but it can also include simply handwritten or printed quotes that are famously known during the holiday season.
Some famous quotes that work well when writing your own Christmas cards include quotes by both Winston Churchhill, Benjamin Franklin, Leonard Maltin, and even Garrison Keillor. Quotes are useful for sharing a specific message about the holiday season whether it is about giving or the meaning of Christmas and the origin of the holiday as a whole.
Lets take a look at some thoughtful sayings to put in your card:
Although it is possible to add quotes from those famous in the past, you can also write simple messages such as “Merry Christmas and we hope you have a happy New Years!” and “Happy Holidays. With Love”. There are no rules or limits when making your own Christmas cards and it is even possible to write a small message within all of the cards you are planning to send out, including a personal note to the person or the household the card is directed towards. Say hello and tell your family and friends you wish them happy holidays and the best of luck for the upcoming year in the future. Include family photos of your own family if you have them to send within the Christmas card to spread the joy of your family regardless of the distance you have between you and those you are sending Christmas cards to. You can also add a simple “Merry Christmas” to your card while including photos or handwritten letters to the recipient of the card during the holidays.
If you want to get creative when writing Christmas cards, you can write your own rhyming poetry or you can use a traditional Christmas poem to share your own holiday cheer. Finding Christmas poetry is free to do and only takes a few minutes by using online poetry communities and networks that focus on Christmas and other holidays during the year.
Adding your own spin on Christmas with a personal message inside of your Christmas cards is a way to make memorable cards that will last a lifetime and that are not generic and store-bought. By taking the time to add and write your own special messages in your cards, you show those you love that you really care and that you have taken the time to show them that during the holiday season.
