16 Quotes To Post On Facebook For Christmas That AREN’T Cheesy

Social media during the holiday season is always fairly lit. People are posting a ton, interacting with their friends and followers even more — and despite the fact that we're all busy with family and friends — we're somehow still constantly absorbing content. So, you'll want to start thinking about what you're planning to post during the holidays early — like, for instance, Christmas quotes to share on Facebook — because you'll need to have some fire ideas lined up if you want to stand out. With literally everyone posting the same exact kind of content at the same time, you've got to step it up with some on-point, yet still festive posts.

I know, I know: you're probably thinking you have better things to do than to spend your time digging up festive holiday quotes for social media, what with all the gift shopping you still have to do, and the emotional preparation it's gonna take to see your family. So don't worry: here I've compiled a list of quotes that are perfect for the Christmas season. Pair them with a photo, or let them speak for themselves. All of them are pretty unique as well as holly jolly, so they're suitable for your Facebook even if your entire extended family follows you.
