Memes are obviously in style all year round, but when it comes to the holidays, they simply add to the festive cheer. Extra points when they can spark a good laugh, something that is totally needed during the inevitable chaos. That's why it doesn't hurt to stockpile a collection of funny Christmas memes to share during the holiday season. Your followers are sure to get a kick out of these amusing posts, whether your social media platform of choice is Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
Better yet, share a meme that gives a nod to your personality or lifestyle. People who truly know you will get the joke, making it that much more hilarious. You can also send funny holiday memes in text messages or e-mails to amp up a not-as-amusing message.
While you're at it, be on the lookout for other memorable holiday moments. For example, if your kids write a funny letter to Santa, snap a photo and send it to loved ones to brighten up their day. Above all, try to find the humor in everything, especially in the midst of all the holiday chaos. With these 24 Christmas memes, you can do just that. And while there will still be gifts to be wrapped and cookies to be baked, you'll at least have some comic relief.
1. A Christmas Cat-astrophe
If you're a cat owner, there's a good chance this meme will speak to your soul.
When you love Christmas more than most people, you're not afraid to let your festive flag fly.
3. Then And Now
Is this a peek into a childless bachelor's sad Christmas? If your holiday looks more like the photo on the right as opposed to the left, at least add a little something sparkly to the air freshener "Christmas tree" — even if it's just a tiny ball of aluminum foil.
4. In My Kid's Eyes
Share this meme if you've got an army of little ones ready to take over a stack of empty cardboard boxes.
Grumpy cat FTW. This one is perfect if you are so over the holidays.
