My Christmas wish for you is to bring a smile to your face and encourage you that a happy Christmas doesn’t always mean more presents or how many cards you get. Remember that this is also a time to cherish each other and share the love. 

I loved creating these messages and compiling my favorite quotes for you. As they say, “tomorrow is never promised.” So before the new year take time to reach out to your loved ones. As a matter of fact, go the extra mile…

Even if you haven’t spoken to someone in a really long time, send a Christmas card — it doesn’t have to be funny; it doesn’t even have to be December. Everyone can use a little cheer. 

I hope you have a fun holiday season and a merry Christmas!
