15 Funny Christmas Quotes to Up Your Holiday Cheer

Despite their reputation for spreading peace, joy, and happiness, the holidays can still get stressful amongst all of the festivities. Ceaseless shopping lists, chaotic travel plans, and never ending engagements inevitably take their toll on Christmas cheer — which is where these funny Christmas quotes come into play. In an effort to counteract any and all negative feelings that are putting a damper on your holiday spirit, I've pulled together a collection of 15 hilarious holiday sayings to get you feeling just as jolly as Santa's belly. Don't worry, you'll forget about your credit card bill and be laughing in no time.

People aren't perfect, and neither are the holidays... however, that doesn't mean that you can't find humor in any situation. Learning to let loose and laugh a little is a true salvation during the month of December. With parties dedicated to wearing ugly Christmas sweaters and men dressed up as Mr. Claus himself, it's hard to imagine the month of December without a small grin and chuckle. So forget being fussy, and try to simply take it all in for what it is. Christmas can drain your wallet, your energy, and your availability, but don't let it drain your sense of humor.
