50+ Classic Christmas Phrases For Crafts, Cards, and Invites » AllWording.com

Christmas is the perfect time to get creative. That’s because the traditional vibe of the holiday makes handmade items and personal sentiments seem so fitting. But also it’s because – let’s face it – Christmas gets expensive when you don’t do at least some things yourself.

Fortunately, whether you’re scrapbooking, designing your own Christmas cards, or doing some other DIY project, there’s no shortage of yuletide inspiration to draw upon. People have been singing Christmas songs and sending good tidings for many years, and as a result, certain words and idioms have become embedded in our collective consciousness. For a holiday do-it-yourselfer, these phrases are pure gold.

We’ve mined some of that gold to create this list of famously catchy Christmas phrases. As you’ll see, you don’t need a lot of words to invoke the Christmas spirit.
