Christmas Wishes and Quotes to Write in a Christmas Card

Updated on January 9, 2016

Tis' the Season to Write in Christmas Cards

After Thanksgiving, the countdown begins. My wife immediately starts listening to strictly Christmas music. People in the neighborhood put up Christmas lights. The stores get busy, and I know it's time to start getting Christmas cards in the mail.

Most Christmas cards have a warm message and a little update about the family which sent the card. There are no rules that you have to follow, but looking over the following examples may help you decide what you want to say.

Christmas Wishes for Friends

We usually see family for the holidays, but friends can make Christmas a lot of fun. Here are some examples of things to write in cards you send to friends.

  1. I always find myself feeling grateful as I sit down to write in my Christmas cards. Mostly I'm thankful for great friends like you.
  2. Friends like you make Christmas extra fun!
  3. We're glad to have great friends like you to send our Christmas cards. We hope this card finds you enjoying the holiday season!
  4. Your presence is the only present I want from you this year.
  5. Although there are many things to be grateful for in my life this holiday season, your friendship is one of my favorites.
  6. No matter how many Christmases go by, you'll always be my friend. And that means you get a card.
  7. I hope this card finds you in good spirits. I am grateful to be able to wish you a merry Christmas, because you are such a good friend.
  8. What would Christmas be without friends like you and me?
  9. Stay cool my friend, but don't get too cold.
  10. You're the type of friend who can warm my heart during the frigid holiday season.
  11. I'm grateful to have people like you to send Christmas cards.
  12. This is the time to celebrate with love and joy for all the blessings we've been given.
  13. Friends are the spice of life at Christmas.
  14. This is the most wonderful time of the year to be with the ones you love. I'm looking forward to seeing you.
  15. Some things in life can't be replaced because they are a gift from above. Friends like you are a great example.

Short Christmas Sayings

Sometimes a short Christmas message is appropriate. This is true when you are sharing a card at work, or if you are creating the saying for a customized family card. I have been creating Christmas cards using online tools with my wife for the past few years. We always need a short saying to write alongside the pictures to wish our friends and family a Merry Christmas.

  1. "Christmas is a great time of the year to say 'I love you.'"
  2. "Know that you are loved this holiday season."
  3. "I'm grateful to have great friends like you."
  4. "Find time to do the most important things this Christmas."
  5. "The best gifts of Christmas aren't found under the tree."
  6. "Peace to you and your family this Christmas."
  7. "We're wishing you a blessed holiday season."
  8. "Tis' the Season to wish my friends a Merry Christmas."
  9. "Sending you warm Christmas wishes!"
  10. "May your Christmas be warm and bright."
  11. "It's Christmas, so it's time to celebrate His birth."
  12. "We hope your experience a little Christmas magic this year."
  13. "Peace on earth. Merry Christmas to all!"
  14. "Have a Happy Holiday!"
  15. "Let's celebrate the greatest gift ever given. Merry Christmas!"
  16. "Love, joy, and peace to you."
  17. "Hope is born at Christmas."
  18. "I'm wishing you an extra scoop of Christmas magic this year."
  19. "Christmas is a time of wonder and amazement."
  20. "I love Christmas almost as much as I love you."

Religious Christmas Wishes

Christmas is a perfect opportunity to spread your faith about who Jesus is to you. Writing an inspirational Christmas wish is a great way to spread the good news to those who you care about. Since your Christmas message should represent you, you can write a meaningful christian message.

  1. "The Lord bless you and keep you this Christmas."
  2. "May you find yourself basking in the love of Christ this Christmas."
  3. "God is good all the time because of the Christmas story."
  4. "The light of the world shines bright at Christmas time."
  5. "We have hope because of Christmas!"
  6. "Jesus is the reason!"
  7. "Christmas is about love, sacrifice, and victory!"
  8. "2000 years ago we were given a great gift, and no gift has ever been given since that can compare."
  9. "Christmas is a time all Christians can celebrate together no matter what denomination."
  10. "Let's celebrate the birth of our Savior!"
