The holiday season is finally here — which means it’s time to deck the halls, bring out the Christmas cookies and embrace all things merry and bright. And while it’s called the most wonderful time of the year for good reason, it’s sometimes all too easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of the holiday preparations. Chances are, your to-do list is as long as the big man’s himself. Before Santa slips down the chimney, you’ve got a Christmas tree to decorate, Christmas activities to do and so many gifts to buy.
We can’t blame you if, by the time the big event finally arrives, all you want to do is sit back with a little eggnog and watch all your favorite Christmas movies. And we’re certain you may have a lot of cards to write and mail before the big day, too. Celebrate your friends and family with sweet sentiments and Christmas quotes that capture the season. These holiday quotes — from the brilliant brains of the likes of Benjamin Franklin, Bob Hope and even Charles Dickens and Bing Crosby — will share the holiday spirit. They’re also perfect for adding a little extra sparkle to your holiday Instagram posts!
