The best writing prompts for Christmas

"All I Want For Christmas Is You"? Trite. "Jingle Bells"? Boring. Miracle on 34th Street? Overplayed. "Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town"? Pass!

Instead of turning to the same old holiday traditions, why not embrace the Christmas spirit by writing about it this year? From reindeer soaring in the sky to sleighs gliding on the snow, writing prompts are a fun way to celebrate the holiday season that can help invigorate the memories of students and get kids to come up with all sorts of creative ideas about everything holiday-flavored. And sharing the stories around a Christmas tree is one of those family activities that you just can’t beat.

If you’re looking to cut to the festive chase, here are ten top Christmas writing prompts:

  • Every year around Christmas, Satan accidentally gets thousands of letters from children writing to Santa. This year, however, he gets a letter that makes him sit up and take notice.
  • Start your story with one character making a vow they would never have made the year before.
  • The turkey is on the floor. Stuffing is stuck to the ceiling. The tree has been toppled over. The presents have been singed. What happened to cause this chaotic Christmas scene?
  • Write about a character who won’t (or can’t) shop for the holidays.
  • Write about a character who’s stuck in a shopping mall.
  • Write about Christmas Day from Rudolph's perspective.
  • Write about light returning to a place deprived of it for a long time, literally or figuratively.
  • "Excuse me," someone says to you, tapping you on the shoulder. "Are these your antlers? You dropped them."
  • You are Santa Claus, and you're running late for work because you're stuck in the middle of a traffic jam caused by a Justice for Reindeer protest.

If you have a student who’s interested in learning how to write stories beyond the holiday season, check out our free resources on the topic:

How to Write a Short Story (free course) — Short stories are one of the greatest writing forms, and it’s never too early to learn how to write them. In this free ten-day course, Laura Mae Isaacman, a full-time editor who’s worked with authors like Joyce Carol Oates, takes students through the whole process. From coming up with story ideas to writing the story itself, Larau will cover it all for writers of every age.

Tips for Writing Christmas Stories

Now that you have a list of Christmas story ideas to choose from, here are some tips to help you bring your story to life:

  • Start with a strong hook to grab the reader’s attention. This could be a mysterious letter found under a Christmas tree, or a sudden, unexplained power outage on Christmas Eve. Your opening should immediately immerse the reader in the story’s world and set the tone for what’s to come.
  • Create memorable characters that readers can relate to. These could be characters facing relatable challenges, like a single parent struggling to create the perfect Christmas, or a child experiencing their first holiday after a significant loss. Give each character distinct traits and motivations to make them feel real.
  • Set the scene by describing the sights, sounds, and smells of Christmas. This involves painting a vivid picture of twinkling lights, the aroma of cinnamon and pine, and the soft sound of carols in the distance. Use sensory details to transport your readers directly into the world of your story.
  • Use dialogue to bring your characters to life and convey emotions. Dialogue can reveal a lot about your characters, like their personality, background, and current mood. An excited child’s chatter about Santa, or a couple’s tender conversation about past Christmases, can add depth to your story.
  • Build tension and suspense to keep readers engaged . This might involve a series of mysterious events leading up to Christmas or a family secret that’s revealed during the holiday dinner. Keep your readers guessing what will happen next.
  • Weave in themes of love, hope, and generosity. Christmas stories often revolve around these themes. Show characters performing acts of kindness, like a businessperson helping a homeless person, or a child learning the importance of giving.
  • Show the transformation and growth of your main character. This is key in Christmas stories. Maybe a cynical character learns the joy of giving, or a lonely individual finds a sense of belonging. Show how the magic of Christmas brings about change in your characters.
  • Add unexpected twists and turns to keep readers guessing. Perhaps a character who hates Christmas ends up saving the day, or a planned holiday goes completely awry, leading to unexpected joy.
  • End on a satisfying note that leaves readers feeling warm and joyful. This doesn’t always mean a happy ending in the traditional sense, but your story should resolve in a way that aligns with the spirit of Christmas, leaving your readers with a sense of closure and contentment.

25 Christmas Writing Prompts For Holiday Inspiration

25 Christmas Writing Prompts for holiday inspiration! #fiction #ideas #idea starters #stories #romance

One of my readers requested this post! I was happy to do it, because winter and the holidays bring great inspiration to me.

(And if you are a teacher, check out my 50 Story Ideas for Kids , too!)

But these prompts work just as well for adults. If you’ve had a busy autumn or a tumultuous year, but you have a Christmas break, that’s a great time to get back into a writing habit again. Although these are fiction prompts, some of them could be adapted to autobiographical prompts for essays, journaling, or memoir writing as well.

I took the about a Christmas card arriving 50 years after it was sent and made a 2500 word short story that was printed in TJ Hannon second short story collection Tales With a Twist 2. An emotional tale about an American soldier stationed in Viet Nam, who never made it home. Thanks for the prompt. These things usually don’t work for me, but this one did

Tom, that’s so cool…I’m so glad it worked out for you!

Thank you so much for these, Bryn!! They got me into the Christmas spirit (a bit), despite the fact that my 7-month old puppy died yesterday. Speaking of disheartening things, could you please make a list of writing prompts about potentially upsetting/unwanted things? I would especially be very grateful if you could throw in a few fantasy/mythology because that is my genre and I really love your creative prompts!! Merry Christmas, Alyssa

Oh Alyssa! I am so sorry about your puppy! I know how much pets mean, and that’s so sad. I wish I could give you a hug. Take really good care of yourself, okay?

That is a great idea for a list. I’ll do it! Honestly, we’ve had a few upsetting things happen to us recently, so I’ll be inspired. 😀 But yes, I’ll try to remember to include some fantasy ones. Thank you for the suggestion!

How to write a great Christmas card

Christmas cards are a great way to let people know you’re thinking about them. You can give them to friends and family as a gift to be saved or send them to loved ones far away to let them know that you’re thinking about them.

When writing a great one, you may want to add more than just a ”Merry Christmas”. These two simple words may suffice, but to make it extra memorable and meaningful, write about your wishes for the recipient and what their friendship means to you. 

Below we’ve included some simple tips for writing a thoughtful Christmas card you can send with love.

  • Start with a greeting, such as Merry Christmas! or Happy Holidays!
  • Express your love and affection for this person or family
  • Share a fond memory of a shared Christmas past or hopes for a shared Christmas in the future.
  • Include a sentimental, heart-warming Christmas-themed quote
  • Sign off with love

Heart-warming Christmas quotes

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the bustle and stress of Christmas time. The quotes below remind you about the joys of Christmas and just how vital this festive holiday is for friends, family, and loved ones.

“Christmas is most truly Christmas when we celebrate it by giving the light of love to those who need it most.” Ruth Carter Stapleton

“We are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas time.” – Laura Ingalls Wilder

“Santa Claus is anyone who loves another and seeks to make them happy; who gives himself by thought or word or deed in every gift that he bestows.” – Edwin Osgood Grover

“It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.” – W.T. Ellis

“Probably the reason we all go so haywire at Christmas time with the endless unrestrained and often silly buying of gifts is that we don’t quite know how to put our love into words.” – Harlan Miller

“It is in giving that we receive.” – Francis of Assisi

“The way you spend Christmas is far more important than how much.” – Henry David Thoreau

“Christmas is a season for kindling the fire for hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.” – Washington Irving

Christmas is a time of fun and festivities, sharing love with those around us and being charitable to the less fortunate. 

It also signifies the end of another year and the approach of a new one. As such, spending time journaling and reflecting at this time of year can be fruitful. 

Hopefully, the Christmas-themed writing prompts in this article have inspired you to express your thoughts and feelings in the written word.

Finally, don’t keep these prompts and ideas exclusive to journaling. All the questions above can be great topics of conversation with friends and family and can even help you get to know strangers or new friends better!

  • What if instead of eating dinner with grandparents, they were in the Alps with the Abominable Snowman?

  • What if a story set in the 2000s took place in the 1700s instead?

2. Pick a holiday card from the stack of cards sent to you this year. Write about a list of inconveniences that interrupted the people as they attempted to take the photo and how they finally took the picture.

3. Write a fictional story about a forest animal who finds Santa and his reindeer stuck in the woods with a broken sleigh.

4. A grumpy parent is dragged along with their family to pick out a holiday tree when a chain of unexpected events teaches them what the holidays are really about.

Christmas Writing Prompts for Kids

Christmas Journal Prompts

These journal prompts work well for a daily question or reflection for kids. It gets them thinking and allows them the opportunity to put their thoughts and ideas onto paper.

Allowing the chance to share their answers is important! Not necessarily to evaluate the actual writing, but to share and build relationships with each other. This is worth the time and builds a strong learning community.

  • Is your Christmas tree a real tree or fake tree? Describe it. Does it have white lights or colored lights? What do you have on the top of the tree?
  • What Christmas present is on your Christmas wish list? Why?
  • How would you take down the abominable snowman?

Creating Writing Prompts

That puts the focus on the ideas, details, and the creative story instead of the mechanics of writing.
