It's that time of year again. Lights sparkle along the neighborhood rooftops, familiar carols play in every store, and people host parties for the sole purpose of wearing ugly sweaters. If everyone and everything is getting in the holiday spirit, then it's time to spruce up your newsfeed, too. These inspirational Christmas Facebook captions will spread joy to your friends and followers. Because if anything needs a little holiday cheer and positivity right now, it's Facebook's newsfeed. Man, that place can be brutal.
Thankfully, these uplifting quotes from movies, books, songs, and poems make the perfect holiday Facebook posts. They take the focus off shopping, awkward family get-togethers, and the general holiday stress. To be completely cliché, these quotes are all about the real meaning of Christmas, the spirit of helping others, and honoring loved ones. And to paraphrase another carol, plenty of people need a little Christmas this year. Personally, I need all the festive spirit I can get.
So to keep the holiday spirit reaching far and wide, share a little inspiration with your Facebook friends. It just may remind them to adopt a more charitable attitude this holiday season. That, or they'll remember they haven't watched The Muppet Christmas Carol in a few years and spend an evening enjoying that film. Both are worthy endeavors.
Would it even be Christmas without a few words from Charles Dickens's ? The story of Scrooge's redemption in time for the holiday season is a total classic. The warm ending can melt even the coldest of hearts, because it's such a perfect story.
If gathering with friends and family gives you warm, fuzzy feelings, then this is the perfect quote to post. Most anyone would agree that the socializing is the best part of the holiday, however you feel about making a verb out of mistletoe.
Good job, Santa. Keep those positive affirmations going. Seriously, though, believing in yourself is important all year round.
OK, this song is still the biggest Christmas bop of all time. Even if you aren't super into Christmas carols, you probably know this song by heart. And you probably dance a little whenever it comes on, because it's so dang catchy. But the sentiment behind it is pretty sweet, because she just wants to be with the person she loves more than anything else. Awww.
For a movie with so many iconically silly scenes, Elf also has a lot of heart. Why not spend some time this holiday season singing loudly and spreading cheer?
Sure, you've heard all the old Christmas carols about a zillion times over, but some of them have legitimately inspirational lyrics. Even "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas" brings the focus back to those wholesome holiday feelings that make your heart tingle this time each year.
The creator of the Peanuts comic had it right in this quote. Even little gestures of kindness can mean a lot to someone else.
Isn't this a lovely thought? Plus, I'm obsessed with the phrase "conspiracy of love." I'm probably going to include that in all my Christmas cards this year.
Few actors convey pure joy as well as James Stewart, who played George Bailey in the Christmas movie classic It's A Wonderful Life. His overwhelming joy at the simplest things is contagious. Doesn't it make you want to run around your own town, spreading holiday wishes to bank buildings and movie theaters?
I will never stop quoting Bill Murray movies and this one really highlights how happy people find themselves on Christmas Eve. Actually, it would be so awesome if everyone would adopt the spirit of Christmas year round. Let's make that happen, people.
