Christmas cards remain a much loved tradition in many households around the world. Taking the time each year to sit down and put pen to paper to express seasonal wishes to friends, family, acquaintances and loved ones remains a popular festive pastime.
Though, when faced with a mountain of carefully selected cards and an up to date address book, the actual writing of a Christmas message can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming. Wishing someone a ‘Merry Christmas’ can sometimes feel a little repetitive, so if you’re in the mood to expand on your season’s greeting message, fear not, this is the place for you.
Here we take a look at different ways you can spread Christmas cheer this year in a carefully scripted message to a loved one or even raise a smile with some hilarious one liners...
How to express Christmas wishes in a card

However, if you’re looking for a few variations to write in your Christmas card, or a desire to bring some humour to the annual exchange of cards and gift tags then read on for inspiration.
