Merry Christmas! ——. May the melody and spirit of the holidays fill your home with love and peace. I wish you all the best and happy New Year too! ——.
love to watch my Christmas tree,
It blinks and sparkles bright.
So many colours of Christmas time,
It sure is a Christmas delight.
Christmas is forever,
Not for just one day.
For loving, sharing, giving,
Are not to put away.
Like bells and lights and tinsel,
in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others,
Is good you do yourself.
Norman W. Brooks
I've been waiting for Christmas
I've been waiting for Christmas
Santa's getting near.
Can't you hear the sleigh bells ringing?
Reindeer up so high
Can't you hear the children singing
As they watch the sky.
Theres More to Christmas
Theres more, much more to Christmas
Than candle-light and cheer;
Its the spirit of sweet friendship
That brightens all the year;
Its thoughtfulness and kindness,
Its hope reborn again,
For peace, for understanding
And for goodwill to men!
I think you're fab-yule-lous!
Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas.
Meet me under the mistletoe...
Christmas is a time for cherishing those who bring so many blessings to our lives. May your heart feel that love this Christmas and throughout the New Year ahead.
My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others.
This Christmas I gave you my heart.
Christmas waves a magic wand over the world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
Norman Vincent Peale.
Your love is the best gift I could have asked for! Merry Christmas sweetheart!
If Christmas love and happiness were snowflakes, I'd wish you a blizzard's worth of them this year. Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Hope this Christmas is your best ever
All I want for Christmas is you presents!
Have a super sparkly Christmas
With love at Christmas and ALL year
Warm wishes for a happy festive season!
Take the time to send Christmas greetings and wishes to friends old and new; Wishes and good cheer from all of my family to you and yours this Christmas.
Take your time in this rush of the holidays to enjoy what really matters in life. Take in the serene moments spent with friends, and may the wonder and awesomeness of Christmas surround you throughout this season. Merry Christmas!
My dear friend, we share so much together. There is nothing more amazing than sitting with you near the Christmas tree, sharing same old memories and thinking about our future. Even if we are apart, I know that we will always be together on Christmas to make it the most wonderful time of the year. And there is only one thing I want to wish you: to be happy. I love you, Merry Christmas.
Your Christmas presents are always the best ones, and I appreciate this fact so much, because you are the person who knows everything about me: my favourite book, music or even smell. I promise you to protect our friendship from all world’s adversities. Merry Christmas, my dear friend.
I feel like I’m Santa Claus, because everything I want to do is giving the most astonishing gifts to the best people. Merry Christmas, buddy!
The whole world is celebrating a wonderful holiday tonight. Christmas makes us forget about fights and quarrels and gives us a chance to feel the unity. Forget about the bad and greet Christmas with a smile on your face. Merry Christmas!
While sending well wishes through text or email is perfectly acceptable in this day and age, there is still no better way to send holiday cheer than with a classic Christmas card. “One of the season’s simple pleasures is sitting down with a cup of hot tea and reading the ‘real mail’ holiday cards and letters,” says Jodi R.R. Smith, founder of Mannersmith Etiquette Consulting. “There is something special about holding a piece of paper that was touched by someone you care about.”
If you're not sure what to write in a Christmas card, Smith recommends keeping it short and simple. Summarize an accurate reflection of your positive life events — no boasting or embellishing — and feel free to include a photo or two. Just don’t forget to “include well wishes to others in addition to your update,” says Smith. “After all, the holiday letter is part of your season's greeting to others.” Yet even when we think we have a lot to share, we often end up with writer's block, staring at a blank card without any idea of what to say. Need a little guidance? These simple Christmas wishes will help you get started writing thoughtful notes for all the special people in your life.

Christmas Day Wishes For Friends: Hey, it's again Merry Christmas and time to celebrate with friends! Though this occasion is enjoyable with all relations but.
The choice to die on the whether-or-not-to-say-merry-Christmas hill should be the choice to die abandoned on top of a hill.
And yet, tens-of-thousands of people see fit to proclaim their feelings from atop Twitter mountains or Facebook molehills:
It’s true that America is experiencing a near-schism over the question of the meaning and importance of language. The annual aneurism Americans share over holiday greetings exemplifies this — an NPR/PBS/Marist poll reported on Thursday found that 52% of Americans are “against the country becoming more politically correct and are upset that there are too many things people can’t say anymore.”
Additionally, a new poll by this writer found that “politically correct” is often code for “polite,” “things people can’t say” is code for “rude comments,” and that no one under the age of 35 answers polls.
Let’s face it: anyone who turns tomato-colored and insists that the phrase “Merry Christmas” is the only thing separating us from the Communists is probably a maniac.
The idea that many liberals find the words Merry Christmas oppressive is mostly imaginary. It’s an easy opportunity for leaders on the right to whip followers into a frenzy. But on the rare occasion when liberals do rage against being wished “Merry Christmas,” the people they’re raging against aren’t imaginary. They’re just underpaid.
Journalist Julia Ioffe’s tweet and subsequent op-ed in the Washington Post is the infrequent case of an outspoken liberal complaining about references to Christmas. In another unusual example, the Toronto Star published an op-ed on Tuesday by Sadie-Rae Werner, who wrote movingly that, “Every time I go into an establishment and someone wishes me “Merry Christmas” I get a little sad.”
The desire to be included on every level is appropriate — even American. But it doesn’t need to happen on the backs of service workers. And if a person who doesn’t know you well enough to know your religious practices is greeting you, they’re probably a service worker. Take Ioffe’s example: an apparently religious Lyft driver “was the umpteen person to wish [her] a ‘Merry Christmas’ that day.”
It’s possible that the Lyft driver was consciously or unconsciously hoping to impress the importance of Christ’s birth on Ioffe. It’s absolutely certain that his profession rises and falls on customer ratings.
If you’re in a large city or rubbing shoulders with the big bad coastal elite, the main people you’re going to hear erroneously saying “Merry Christmas” are service workers. There isn’t much Merry Christmas-ing in office culture. Your kids’ teachers stopped saying it years ago. Your friends know about your religious practices. Your neighbors don’t talk to you anyway, unless it’s to tell you to quiet down. The only people left are the least paid, least protected, and least powerful in an interaction with you.
Service workers are not hankering after an explanation of whether or not you celebrate Christmas: they are just being polite, and trying not to get fired.
The people bagging your groceries or ringing you up at Duane Reade are trying to give you a positive experience. The people bringing your check after dinner and polishing your nails are doing what they can to receive a high enough tip to earn a living wage. Nurses and mail carriers who tell you they want you to have a Happy Christmas or a Merry Holiday or Meaningful Solstice are probably not engaged in cultural guerrilla warfare; they’re probably trying to have a brief, positive interaction with you.
Be careful about who you’re inveighing against when you say you do or don’t want to hear about Christmas — it’s probably people who are already doing you a favor.
