Christmas inspires a lot of positive feelings. The trouble is, they’re always in danger of getting buried in a mountain of glitter. Between the shopping, decorating, potlucks, social obligations, and other distractions of the holiday season, it’s easy to forget that Christmas has a higher meaning.
That’s why sending an inspirational Christmas message is one of the nicest things you can do for someone. The best Christmas wishes hit notes that are heartwarming, thoughtful, sentimental, and perhaps even a little sappy (it is Christmas, after all). Here’s a collection of inspirational Christmas messages you can send out to remind friends and family of what Christmas is all about.
Note: For many people, the true meaning of Christmas lies in its religious significance. While the messages below contain some Christian sentiments, we also have a whole other article devoted to religious Christmas card sayings.
