Christmas Card Puns 2023

As the last leaves fall from the trees and the frost starts nipping at your nose, it can only mean one thing…that it's the most pun-derful time of the year! Christmas is a time for family and friends, for spreading love, laughter and good wishes for the year to come. Sending Christmas cards is a lovely way to share a few words of season’s greetings with all your friends and relatives from far and wide and update them on your latest family news. While Christmas card messages such as ‘Merry Christmas’, ‘Happy New Year’ and ‘Happy Holidays’ are timeless for some, you may feel that they could benefit from a revamp. Our team has compiled some of their favourite Christmas card puns to help you sprinkle joy and Christmas spirit into your season’s greetings cards. It’s snow joke! Explore our ideas for short Christmas messages that will make your stationery extra festive and punny this year.
