I like quotes and messages that make me feel happy and warm and fuzzy inside. Here I share some of my favorite holiday quotes.
My favorite quotes are the ones that focus on love and caring for each other and, yeah, some of the funny ones. 🙂
I like these quotes because they remind us that Christmas and the holidays are really about LOVE.
“My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?”
“Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone.”
“Christmas makes me happy no matter what time of year it comes around.”
… and my favorite…
“Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas.”
This quote is special to me because it conveys a very important message to every child.

Tongue in Cheek Christmas Quotes
We all have people we see once a year, and many of us may not want to see them more often. So, I am sure we can all relate to this quote.
“Santa Claus has the right idea – visit people only once a year.”
Christmas is a great time of the year, but at the same time, it is also a stressful time of the year, especially when many family members are thrown together.
“A lovely thing about Christmas is that it’s compulsory, like a thunderstorm, and we all go through it together.”
“A Christmas candle is a lovely thing. It makes no noise at all. But softly gives itself away.”
With the busyness of the holiday season, I really appreciate quiet companionship. This quote illustrates that beautifully.
