25+ Ways to Say Merry Christmas, Son!

Sending out holiday greetings has always been a great way to reconnect with old friends and distant relatives. Of course, it also offers an opportunity to tighten bonds with the people who are closest to us. If you have a son, sending him the perfect Christmas message – whether it’s sweet, sentimental, or just silly – lets him know how much he means to you.

The question is, what is the perfect Christmas message for a son? That depends on your son’s personality, your relationship with him, and other factors too numerous to mention. One thing we can say for sure – a generic Christmas greeting will not fit the bill.
