Christmas Card Caption Ideas

November 5, 2010

I need a caption for our Xmas photo. I have several photos of my 3 boys holding the letters of JOY, but I could not get them to stand in order to actually spell J O Y. I am attaching just a sample photo, but I have several combinations. I do have individual photos of them that I can use, but was hoping to find a funny caption for the mixed up spellings. Thanks in advance for any suggestions! Happy Holidays!

I need a cute caption for our Christmas card this year. I have a cute picture of my son sitting with his elbows on his knees and his chin in his hands. It looks like he is pouting. I may add an additional picture of him smiling also. Any ideas?

How about borrowing from the lyrics of the "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" song? Something along the lines of "You better not pout . . . Santa Claus is coming to town." You could feature the first words under the pouting picture, and the smiling picture over the second words.

I'm trying to come up with a witty saying for our Christmas card. I have a very cute picture in his little construction hat while using his hammer. Not, very Christmas-y, but so cute. I'm currently pregnant and was trying to think of somehow working that in. I know there are a lot of witty people out there, please help.

I am needing a caption/phrase for my daughter's Christmas card picture. She is 18 months old. I made a "fake" Santa with just his legs and boots sticking out from under the Christmas tree. I have 1 picture of her making a face in front of Santa and a 2nd picture where she has on a Santa hat with a grin and Santa in the background. My plan is to put it on the card as a before and after type shot. I need a caption that would go with these photos. Does anyone have any ideas?

We took a picture with my 8 year old girl holding a large gift tag attached to my 5 year old girl (who is all wrapped up in ribbon) that says: "To: Santa From: Your Secret Admirer". My youngest has a priceless "mad" face because she is offended that big sis is trying to give her away. I can't think of a cute saying to go with the card though! Any ideas?

We took several family Christmas pictures and in every picture my husband, my 8 year old, and I are smiling, but also in every picture my 4 year old is making a silly face. I would love for someone to help me come up with a Christmas card saying to match my silly 4 year old. Thanks.

I need some suggestions for a caption for our photo Christmas cards this year. Our picture is of me, my husband, and our two daughters (8 and 14) on the beach, jumping up and having excited expressions on our faces. My brother edited the photo to add Santa hats. I was thinking, "We just found out we're on the nice list" or "So excited that Santa's on his way", but those seem boring. Please help.

My personal thought is to use the lovely sounding original photo without the Santa hats with a caption like, "We are joyous for our gift of the real reason for this season!"
