You may be a pro at Christmas and holiday celebrations. You know how to put lights on a Christmas tree and purchase all your Christmas gifts well ahead of time. Your watch list of Christmas movies on Netflix is ironclad well before the season begins. But if you still struggle with finding the right Christmas card or holiday card sayings every year, you're not alone.

Christmas cards have changed a lot in the last few years: Photo cards are all the rage, digital or e-cards are almost as popular as paper ones, and foil-printing is the look du jour. But the task of finding the right phrases to use in your annual send remains the same. They're sort of like Christmas quotes or gift exchange ideas in that way.

The difficulty lies in finding the perfect term to represent your family and share holiday cheer with the recipient. If you write a personalized note on every card you send, this chore can be a huge distraction from all your well-laid holiday plans.

These Christmas card sayings and quotes will help you make your holiday cards the best they can be, so you can focus on eating more peppermint bark.
