Free fonts for Christmas

Christmas is such a fun time for decorating. Everything is shiny and festive, with reminders everywhere of why this season is so joyous.

You can tell where the most zealous decorators live because there are little bits of Christmas cheer on every surface imaginable. But why should your house and office have all the fun?

It's also time to start preparing cards, invitations, gift tags and letters. We've found a fun way to dress up all your prints for this Christmas season.

It's the perfect font. A font can convey sophistication or whimsy in your invitations and cards for the holiday season.

How To Geek has about two dozen free Christmas fonts for your stationery. You'll find fonts decorated with snowflakes, candy canes and Christmas trees.

If you want to stick with more traditional fonts, there are a few to choose from; or, choose fonts that are entirely images without letters or numbers. You can get Christmas trees, snowflakes, wreaths, angels, gifts and more to add a little extra seasonal flair to your stationary.

The Christmas fonts come in TTF, or TrueType Font. They're compatible with Macs and PCs, and they're easy to add to your font directory once they're downloaded.

You'll have no trouble creating holiday banners, gift tags, invitations or other stationery. You don't have much time left before Christmas, but there's no reason not to be festive with these fun and easy-to-use fonts.
