What to write in your Christmas cards and messages


BelleBeirut has compiled a list of holiday greetings messages for you to wish Merry Christmas to your friends and family. Use them on cards, SMS messages, Whatsapp or even email messages.

Every year for the holidays, our cellphones and our mailboxes are flooded with messages from friends, family and colleagues wishing us Merry Christmas or just happy holidays.

With every passing year, the same messages are sent around, which is why we’ve decided to compile a list of original and unique messages for you to stand out.


1- “He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.” – Roy L. Smith

2- “For the spirit of Christmas fulfils the greatest hunger of mankind.” – Loring A. Schuler

3- “I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month.” – Harlan Miller

4- “Christmas is for children. But it is for grown-ups too. Even if it is a headache, a chore, and nightmare, it is a period of necessary defrosting of chill and hide-bound hearts.” – Lenora Mattingly Weber

5- “Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas.” – Dale Evans Rogers

6- “It is Christmas every time you let God love others through you… yes, it is Christmas every time you smile at your brother and offer him your hand.” – Mother Teresa

7- “Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall.” – Larry Wilde, The Merry Book of Christmas

8- “Christmas is the day that holds all time together.” – Alexander Smith

9- “Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.” – Unknown

10- “We expect too much at Christmas. It’s got to be magical. It’s got to go right. Feasting. Fun. The perfect present. All that anticipation. Take it easy. Love’s the thing. The rest is tinsel.” – Pam Brown

☼ May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,
The gladness of Christmas give you hope,
The warmth of Christmas grant you love.

☼ I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

☼ I love the Christmas-tide, and yet,
I notice this, each year I live;
I always like the gifts I get,
But how I love the gifts I give!
-Carolyn Wells

☼ Somehow, not only for Christmas, but all the long year through, the joy that you give to others, is the joy that comes back to you. And the more you spend in blessing, the poor and lonely and sad, the more of your heart’s possessing, returns to you glad.
-John Greenleaf Whittier.

☼ Let Christmas not become a thing
Merely of merchant’s trafficking,
Of tinsel, bell and holly wreath
And surface pleasure, but beneath
The childish glamour, let us find
Nourishment for soul and mind.
Let us follow kinder ways
Through our teeming human maze,
And help the age of peace to come
From a Dreamer’s martyrdom.
-Madeline Morse

☼ For some, this was a bad year,
For others it was a great one,
But before we welcome the new year
Christmas comes to wipe our tears
And strengthen our smiles!
May the birth of Christ
Bring you and your loved ones
Happiness and Joy
Merry Christmas

☼ Tonight, be with your family
Make them happy
And give them the best
Christmas gift of all
Merry Christmas

☼ Children are unwrapping the gifts
Parents are hoping they fit
Grand mothers are cooking
Grand fathers are laughing
That’s what Christmas is all about
Merry Christmas to your and your loved ones
