How To Write a Christmas Message for a Card


  • Write the message personally. The recipient would feel more loved if you will personally write the message. If you couldn’t come up with the right words, you may look at above samples for inspiration. You may use some of them and tweak it as necessary.
  • Keep it short and straightforward. When writing in a Christmas card, keep it caring yet short. This is possible especially if you choose a card with pre-written messages on it. You can just write “Merry Christmas” and “Happy Holidays” on it.
  • Include your family. You may also ask other members of the family to sign the cards. Adding their personal messages and signs would be a wonderful gesture when giving out Christmas cards.
