Happy Holidays: 95 Christmas sayings to give away and say

Christmas sayings can be wonderfully written on Christmas cards. So you can stand out from the crowd and finally break away from the usual "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year". After all, it is no longer anything special when all of your relatives and friends give you nice cards, but each of them says the same thing.

Another option is to recite Christmas sayings instead of writing them on a Christmas card. Christmas is a peaceful time when the family comes together and happiness is the focus. Some families have even made it a tradition to recite Christmas sayings or Christmas poems before the presents are given. This is to cause everyone to gather, each family member to be in focus for a brief moment and everyone to have something to laugh about.

You can also add other sayings to your Christmas greetings. A kindly meant wisdom, sayings about the family for your relatives or sayings for your best friend can give your Christmas card a loving touch. After all, you can use this occasion not only to express Christmas wishes, but also to tell your loved ones what they mean to you.

Christmas sayings for children

Christmas sayings for children

A child's laugh at Christmas is probably one of the most beautiful things in life. Children perceive Christmas in a completely different way, feel unbridled excitement and spread a special magic that also fills adults. As a rule, however, Christmas cards are less interesting for children. They are often only skimmed over because the same thing is written everywhere anyway and the eyes quickly wander to the actual gift.

So that the cards are also fun for the children, we have selected Christmas sayings that are thematically child-friendly and formulated in simple language. With wit and melody, they are especially fun for children. In order for the child to read the saying carefully, you could ask them to read your card out loud - this will give everyone something of a benefit and can laugh together.

  1. Christ Child, Christ Child, good guest. Did you bring me something? If you have something, then sit down, if you have nothing, then go right back.
  2. Do it like the Christmas bear - it doesn't take life that hard. Doesn't leave any worries through his fur, he loves the world warm and bright. And if it should be dark, he can enjoy it by candlelight!
  3. Advent, Advent, a little light is burning. First one, then two, then three, then four, then the Christ Child is at the door. And when the fifth light is on, then Santa has slept.
  4. "Oh Omi, the drum from you was really my best Christmas present."
    “Really?” Says Granny happily.
    "Yes, Mommy gives me five euros every day if I don't play on it!"
  5. Says Fritzchen to his mother: "You can cross the train off my wish list, I found one in the closet yesterday."
  6. “Mom, I can't go to school until later today. My advent calendar door is stuck! "
  7. Teacher: “It will be Christmas soon. Can someone tell me what you can do at Christmas? "
    Fritzchen: "I know it: presents."
    Teacher: "Yes Fritzchen, for example."
    Fritzchen: "For example underpants."
  8. Santa Claus, oh Santa Claus
    how I like you
    Come with gifts every year
    and are always there on time.
    You make all children happy
    that's why we like you so.

    Give me a chocolate man.
    Not so big and not so small
    But it should be cute.

    they can buy something.
