Best Christmas Quotes
Here's a selection of what I think are some of the best Christmas quotes. Obviously "best" is a matter of personal preference, but maybe you'll have similar taste to me. Personally, I like quotes that are funny or give you the warm fuzzies, but are not overbearingly sentimental.
When I made this list, I had Christmas card writing in mind. So, most of the quotes are perfect as Christmas card quotes that you can write alongside your personal message in your Christmas cards.
Heartwarming/Cute Best Christmas Quotes
My favourite cute Christmas quotes to make you feel warm inside. Mostly they're short enough to work well as Christmas card quotes.

The gladness of Christmas give you hope,

Funny Christmas Quotes
I hope that these funny Christmas sayings and humorous Christmas quotes bring a smile to your face like they did to mine!
By the way, I've deliberately left out quotes that I found too cynical. There are some very funny Christmas card sayings out there that on second thoughts reveal a dim view of human nature.
