When the honey candle burns
And you smell Advent,
Then open the first gate,
Get the star out of straw.
Cut out butter cookies,
Look forward to Santa Claus,
Find your grey stuffed animal,
Wrap it in glossy paper.
And if you find waiting hard,
Staun' into the sea of Christmas lights.
Wishing you an exciting Christmas season...

When do you think it's Christmas time?
If it snows hard outside,
when we crack nuts,
when we bake cookies,
when we sing with our mother,
when all the bells are ringing,
when the world rejoices,
Then it's Christmas time!

Happy Christmas to you...

The baby Jesus is coming soon.
We'll get fir trees from the forest,
For a wreath so round and fine,
Four red candles are lit on it.

We'll light the first one today,
Sunday's the second,
By the third one,
your whole face is already shining,
Because it all smells like Christmas.

And when the fourth one's turned on,
Then the bells ring for Christmas Eve.

Grandma and Grandpa wish you a Merry Christmas!

Funny Christmas Greetings

Although most families celebrate Christmas in a contemplative and traditional way, it is also allowed to laugh during the Christmas holidays. Even old Christmas songs such as "O du Fröhliche..." indicate that it is a merry Christmas. Why shouldn't it be funny Christmas greetings that friends and relatives are happy about? Perhaps there is even something personal that can be included in a poem or saying. Funny Christmas greetings are not always appropriate, because not everyone is receptive to them. Therefore, it should be carefully considered in advance whether the addressee is suitable for this.

Oh, you happy Christmas time,
I am not ready for you,
because I could get it,
Presents for Christmas morning,
cause I have a lot of cash,
in my pocket, in my Täsch,
maybe you can this year,
later, everywhere,
and cookies i have also not,
because my oven is not hot,
and the delicious Christmas roast,
this year is a total failure,
and therefore, dear Christmas time,
I am not for you bereit.

Be that as it may, I wish you a very happy Christmas season!

Author: unknownCategory: Funny Christmas Greetings

When the snow falls wonderfully
and the mulled wine tastes so great,
when we always chew cookies
and so much like building a snowman,
then we know, it is so far:
She's there, the Christmas time.

Merry Christmas to you all!

Do it like the Christmas bear -
he doesn't take life so hard.
Does not let worry by his fur,
he loves the world very warm and bright.
And if she should be dark,
he enjoys it by candlelight!

the New Year. A year without fear and great
as much success as you need to be satisfied.
and only as much stress as you can bear to be healthy.

necessary to be happy for 365 days. This Christmas tree
who sends you his best wishes

How to send greetings for Christmas?

Nowadays there are already numerous possibilities in the Internet to send Christmas greetings free of charge. Once you have decided on a card motif, the e-mail address of the recipient and the sender is entered and the card can be further designed. With some cards, you can even store the matching Christmas music, which is played to the recipient of the Christmas card when it is opened on the Internet. The animated maps are also very popular. Flickering candles, singing reindeer or dancing Santa Clauses - you are spoilt for choice with these motifs too. With some providers it is even possible to pre-date the card. This means that the card can be designed a few days in advance and sent automatically on a specified day. A retrieval notification is also possible. This shows if and when the recipient opened the Christmas greeting.
Social networking sites can reach many people at once with Christmas greetings. If the greeting is sent to a group, all members of this group can read the Christmas greetings. This is quick, but also much more impersonal than sending a personalized card. Greetings via SMS or WhatsApp are just as fast and also possible at the last push. In the Christmas season so often many messages and small funny little films about Christmas are sent back and forth.

How can Christmas greetings be formulated?

Business greetings should not be written too personally and should be kept relatively neutral. With a Christmas card that is not too conspicuous, we can thank you at the end of the year for the good cooperation in the current financial year. The speech will normally be: "Dear Mr....", "Dear Ms...." or also "Dear team of the department or company...".

Of course, family members will be contacted personally. Here it depends on the respective person. Parents and children are very close and it is easy to find the right words here.

It may be a little more difficult with relatives you only see once a year. Here you could write a small poem or a quotation on the card and finish with kind regards from the family.

You can also send an original Christmas card to a colleague you see all year round. Funny Christmas sayings are perfect for this. Colleagues certainly don't expect too personal a speech - but they will certainly be happy about a nice Christmas greeting.

Popular "phrases" for Christmas wishes

Everyone knows them, the recurring sentences and sayings that contain the typical card greetings for Christmas. In the following, we present a small collection of popular wishes that are ideal for ending every greeting or as a stand-alone solution on greeting cards:

  • We wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year!
  • Merry Christmas wishes you...
  • Send Christmas greetings...
  • We wish you peace and contemplation for the festival of love. To spend time with your family.
  • The best wishes for Christmas send you...
  • Love and mercy - that's what Christmas stands for. This basic idea should give strength and hope for the future. In this spirit I wish you a blessed feast!
  • We wish you a peaceful celebration with your family and a happy new year.
  • For Christmas I wish you pleasant hours in a merry circle, but also peace and time to relax.
  • Also this year we will send you peaceful Christmas wishes by post. Yours...
  • Merry Christmas send you from the north of Germany with all your heart...
  • We would like to use the time of love and peace to wish you a wonderful Christmas.

When is it best to send Christmas greetings by post?

Despite all the technical possibilities and refinements, the traditional and hand-written Christmas card is still popular. Christmas wishes and Christmas sayings are ideal for this and provide the recipient with a warm-hearted feeling.
Your grandparents probably won't be able to do much with a text message greeting for Christmas, even if your mobile phone should offer this possibility. But with a nice handwritten card you will certainly give them a great pleasure.
Even if Christmas is a holiday that is celebrated more with family and good friends, you may also want to write one or two business Christmas cards - for example for a customer, for a certain company or for a superior. Here, too, the classic card variant is more suitable.

How do you respond to a Christmas greeting?

You failed to send a greeting to a specific person, but you received one yourself. You don't have to be embarrassed. There are certainly many reasons why you have not written her/him.
Here, too, it depends who sent you the Christmas greetings. A close family member can call you in the next days personally and thank you. In return, you can send a New Year's greeting to distant relatives or acquaintances. Here, too, there are many beautiful greeting cards.

But the most beautiful Christmas card is no use if it doesn't arrive in time for Christmas. As a rule of thumb, you can expect two days for domestic shipping. If the card is sent abroad, you should check with the post office beforehand.

When was the first Christmas greeting sent?

Lord Sir Henry Cole, an Englishman, is considered the inventor of the classic Christmas card. In 1843 he commissioned the illustrator and painter John Callcott Horsley to design a card for him with the text "Merry christmas and a happy new year to you! John Callcott Horsley chose a festive family scene as the motif for the first Christmas card. With the introduction of the first stamp (Penny Post) in Great Britain in 1840, sending Christmas cards became very popular.
So the tradition of the Christmas card began in England. In Germany, however, the first copies were only sent after the First World War. Until then, so-called wish sheets with ornaments and pictures were sent out. Here greetings or Christmas poems were written by hand.

The tradition of sending Christmas wishes during the Christmas season has not changed to this day. But it is the way they are sent. Young people are perhaps more likely to fall back on the many technical possibilities here than the somewhat older generation.

The different types of Christmas cards

Of course, today's Christmas cards can no longer be compared to the first traditional cards. A classic Christmas card is now offered as a so-called double card. On the cover sheet there is the motif, on the inside there is either a prefabricated text or the inside can be labeled. The selection of cards ranges from simple to modern motifs. Some of the cards are very elaborately designed with glitter particles, pearls and embossing, but also with prefabricated Christmas sayings, Christmas poems or funny comic figures. So-called music cards also play Christmas carols when opened.

Christmas cards are something very special. With children of kindergarten or primary school age, handicrafts are particularly fun. But many
Adults also enjoy making beautiful cards. You can get all the necessary materials in a handicraft supplies store. Here the text on the card almost becomes a minor matter, because the loving design actually speaks for itself.

A final tip: Would you now like to wish your loved ones a Merry Christmas? If so, be creative when designing your cards and do not write the same text every year. If texting is too time-consuming for you, you should have a look at our huge Christmas greetings archive and pick out the appropriate Christmas sayings and Christmas wishes. Have fun with it!
