What to Write in a Christmas Card
When writing, a general rule of thumb is to keep your message appropriate to the recipient and the occasion. Christmas card notes should be short and sweet, but inscriptions should also be warm and seasonal. Of course, write accordingly if the recipient is your "Aunt Joan," who requires paragraphs of life updates. Strike a balance between concise and festive, and you'll have appropriate Christmas card sentiments for everyone on your list.
Begin (and end) each inscription with a seasonal greeting such as "Merry Christmas." Follow it with a personal message appropriate to your relationship with the recipient, and close with a final festive address, plus your signature. Most of the sentiments collected below work for general seasonal greetings too. You could also add "Happy Holidays," "Season's Greetings," or "Happy Hanukkah" to the message, depending on the holiday you're celebrating and who is the recipient of your correspondence. Happy writing!
