12 Heartfelt, Funny & Festive Messages to Write in Christmas Cards

Every year, I bet you get Christmas Cards that just have a simple ‘Merry Christmas’ in them? Almost every single one, no doubt. It’s the thought that counts, of course. But, wouldn’t it be nice to receive or send the odd one with a funny, heartfelt or extra-festive message in?

With Christmas less than 9 weeks away, we’re already seeing a massive demand for Christmas Cards. Almost a billion of them will be sent in the UK alone this year, with the average Brit sending 16 to friends and family.

In a recent Facebook poll we ran, 67% of respondents said that receiving a card was more important to them than receiving a gift. Some of our Facebook followers even said they kept every card they’d ever received:

“I’ve kept every single card I’ve received since I was a baby (27 now). I’ve got two massive boxes full of them at my Mum’s” – Hannah (Facebook)

With Christmas creeping up fast, have you got your Christmas Cards ready to send out? Today, we’re throwing down the festive gauntlet to you: Go beyond the standard ‘Merry Christmas’ in cards you send to friends and family.
