Popular Christmas Idioms and Phrases
Here are some of my favourite Christmas idioms.
The first holiday idiom is, “white Christmas.” Everyone hopes for a white Christmas. That means you have snow on Christmas. It’s also the name of a popular Christmas movie.
I live in Vancouver and it will only snow maybe four or five days a year or something like that. Everybody hopes that it’s snowing on Christmas or the day before so that you can have a white Christmas. Last year, we had a white Christmas and everyone was very happy.
Do you usually have a white Christmas where you live? Leave a comment and let me know.
Good Things Come in Small Packages
The second Christmas idiom is “good things come in small packages.”
So that means if you get presents, you can get a very big present, you can get some medium-sized presents, or a small present. If you get a very small present, it might actually be something expensive. It could be a ring, necklace or another piece of jewelry. So you could say, “Good things come in small packages.”
Christmas Came Early
The next Christmas idiom is “Christmas came early.” That means something good happened kind of unexpectedly. For example, if you get a raise or a bonus at work you could say, “Christmas came early” because maybe you didn’t expect that to happen.
You can use this Christmas idiom to express good news! Has Christmas ever came early for you? Leave a comment and let us know.
You and Yours (Christmas Idiom)
The next holiday idiom is, “you and yours.” So that’s a way to say you and then your loved ones. For example, you could say, “wishing you and yours all the best,” or, “please give my love to you and yours.” It refers to you and the people that you love, your children or your extended family.
The More the Merrier (holiday phrase)
The final Christmas idiom is, “the more the merrier.” This could refer to a party or a dinner or something like that. Something might say to you, “Is it okay if I bring my boyfriend to the party?” You could say, “The more the merrier.” That means the more people, the better.
