25 Thoughtful Christmas Card Messages

Christmas. It’s a time for old traditions and new traditions. Going all out with the tinsel, the Christmas Ham and decorations. And doing all the things that make you feel all festive and fuzzy inside.

But the most important thing about Christmas? Spending time with the people who mean the most. Catching up with lifelong friends, visiting all the family, or checking in with those who, although physically far away, are always top of mind. To help you find the right words to show just how much they mean to you, we’re sharing our favourite Christmas card messages. So you never have to wonder about what to write in a Christmas card again.
