Hoxton/Tom Merton

The holiday season is finally here — which means it’s time to deck the halls, bring out the figgy pudding and embrace all things merry and bright. And while we love Christmas, 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 Christmas cookies to bake, a Christmas tree to decorate, 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 collapse with a glass of eggnog and start a Christmas movie marathon.

But wait! The holiday season is about so much more than festive decor and indulging the gimme gimmes — it’s a time to focus on celebrating family, friends and the little moments that bring you joy. To help, we’ve gathered the best Christmas quotes and sayings that will remind you the real reason for the season. These holiday quotes — from the brilliant brains of the likes of Benjamin Franklin, Calvin Coolidge and even Dr. Seuss and Bing Crosby — will bring you back to the fact that Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. They’re also perfect to add a little extra meaning to your holiday Instagram posts, social media shares and those gorgeous DIY Christmas cards.
