82 Christmas quotes to give the warm and fuzzies

There’s a lot to do, isn’t there? Shopping, hiding-presents, decorating, gingerbread house-building… and eating (our favorite). There are TV specials to nap in front of, lights to “ooh” at and distant relatives to dodge under the mistletoe, and a key part of all of that – okay, okay maybe the most important part – is telling people just how much they mean to you. Merry Christmas quotes to write in your festive cards are not few and far between, but, we’ve taken extra-special care to find you all the very best ones.

If it’s a note on a plate of homemade cookies for your neighbor, Christmas wishes quotes would certainly sweeten the gesture. Or, you could elevate that fruit basket and bag of chestnuts you’ve got earmarked for the best teacher ever by popping on a handwritten Christmas quote and watch them get all mushy. Or, perhaps you’re feeling a bit Grinch-y and need a helping hand with some festive cheer, these should do the trick.
