Sending out last minute Christmas cards and blanking on what to write inside of them? If so, use someone else's words by copying down one of these 13 holiday greetings quotes for 2016. This round-up of quotes includes words of wisdom from some of America's favorite people and films (I'm talking The Polar Express and Nightmare Before Christmas, you guys!).
When you have twenty or more Christmas cards to send out, thinking of something unique and sincere to write in each one can be exhausting, if not impossible. Fortunately, these 13 quotes make for an easy solution. And don't think of yourself as sending a unthoughtful message to all of your friends and family if you do choose to use one of these holiday greetings in your cards, because each quote is authentic and filled with love in its own special way.
It's hard to put the reason for the season into words, so why not let the likes of Bob Hope and Oprah Winfrey do it for you? After all, there's a reason these people get paid to be public figures. If you're not planning on sending out holiday cards this season, don't let that stop you from sharing these quotes either.
