Christmas Quotes for a Simple and Meaningful Christmas

Christmas Quotes for a Simple and Meaningful Christmas

I’d like to share some Christmas quotes for a simple and meaningful Christmas. Reflect on them, share them with loved ones and enjoy a slow, heart-felt Christmas this year.

A SIMPLE CHRISTMAS

Christmas can feel rushed, expensive and overwhelming but I do believe that being a little organised, planning ahead and focusing your time, energy and money on what makes Christmas feel special to you can really help remove the seasonal stress and pressure.

Stores and sharp advertising tactics encourage us to do more, buy more and spend more but this doesn’t mean that Christmas is any more memorable or special.

I hope the following Christmas quotes remind you and encourage us all to focus on the true magic and meaning of Christmas this year, whatever that looks like for you.

HOW TO USE THESE CHRISTMAS QUOTES

Words are powerful and I love sharing quotes on Instagram and Facebook. They’re great ways to share the message of simplicity and remind us to be intentional in life in so many ways.

You could use these Christmas quotes as:

  • Thoughtful messages written in Christmas cards to send to loved ones
  • As journal prompts to help you reconnect with your thoughts and feelings
  • To share on social media and spread the idea of a meaningful and simple Christmas
  • Pin to Pinterest as a source of information and inspiration

Let me know in the comments at the end of this article if you have any other ideas!
