10 Festive Christmas Quotes to Inspire You This Holiday Season

Christmas Quotes

As the holiday season draws near, it’s just about time to start sending out Christmas cards. Sending your loved ones a holiday card shows them how much you care, and helps spread the joy of the season far and wide. But, what should you write when, “Merry Christmas,” just doesn’t convey all that you have to say?

How to Find an Inspiring Christmas Quote

First, don’t worry if you feel like you can’t always find the perfect words. Try writing from the heart, and it will feel authentic and true. Your Christmas card doesn’t have to include long and winding poetry. Instead, sometimes keeping it short and simple is best. If you’re looking for a little more, you can always choose a quote from some of the greatest writers throughout history, such as Charles Dickens, Dr. Seuss, Helen Steiner Rice, and the like. You’ll find plenty of inspiring messages that help convey the true meaning of the season and the peace and love that we should carry with us throughout the year.

To share even more Christmas joy with your loved ones, give them a wonderful Christmas gift along with your holiday card. You can’t go wrong with a beautiful fruit arrangement, like our Delicious Celebration – Dipped Fruit Delight. It’s packed with chocolate covered pineapple stars and strawberries, along with grapes, melons and so much more.
