One of a most important part of hosting a Christmas party is your Christmas speech. Whether you are a hosting a school/college Christmas program or a small home or office party, you need a good anchoring or welcome speech to set the tone right for the Christmas Eve.
Here in this article, we are giving you a sample speech on Christmas day celebrations. You can also use part of this sample speech for say, essay, anchoring / comparing and even for article writing too. Yes, definitely you need to mold the given information accordingly. And we know that you are smart enough to do that.
We will start with tips on writing Christmas speech then we will give you sample speeches. Kindly note that there cannot be a perfect ready-made speech or anchoring script which will tick all points. You can use the structure and content of sample speech, but kindly add your own thoughts, emotions, experience, humor to it.
How to Write a Christmas Speech
First and most important thing is to know who is your audience. Is it friends and family, colleagues/employees at the workplace, fellow students, and teachers? Once you know your audience it is easy to decide, theme, the tone of the speech.
Next, you need to define/know the agenda of the party, means what all things planned for the event. Along with that, you should know where you are going to deliver the speech. let’s see examples,
If it is a home party, it is simple. Family, friends come together spend a good time, wine and dine. In this case, the host needs to keep speech short and sweet. Just welcome guests and say something about Christmas itself, pray and have fun. You can use some insider jokes too.
Now in India we have a lot of English medium and convent schools who celebrate the Christmas each year. Here your audience is teachers, students, and chief guest/s if any. In this case, you will be acting as an anchor. The tone of the event can be formal to semiformal. You might have some thee defined for the event like charity, gratitude, young talent etc.
In the third case, that is office party; the tone of the event will be semi-formal and sometimes it can be formal too. If there are a big number of Christian employees in office then you can expect a big event too. Please remember that this is time employees want to spend with family and friends, prepare your speech in such a way that they will not get bored at the start of the event itself.
Next step is to prepare an outline of the event. Party will start from welcome speech, then you will be introducing overall program schedule or list of events planned and then there will be thank you note. After that, there will food and fun and probably an after dinner Christmas speech.
Now, let’s see the Christmas day party speeches

It’s a team effort, every department, every individual gave their 100%, to make it happen. Every business sees ups and downs, what we learned from this is if we stay together and put our sincere efforts to a common cause then no one can beat us.

Sample Christmas Speech
In the shadow of our times, the light of Christmas shines upon us. As per old saying, “You shall love your neighbors as yourself”, today this message needs to realize than anything else. Doors are closed, we don’t know who are our neighbors. We fight with neighboring countries which were sometime back the part of the same nation, heritage, and culture.
With globalization and technology distance between people and nations is decreasing, but rather than coming close people are becoming more detached. More we focus on individual more selfish we will be. We are social animal, we need people in our life. Speak to people, know their pains, share your happiness, it is hight time to reunite and ignite the sense of community again in the society.
In old days we kept our door open for neighbors, we used to help each other. Now we complain that nobody helps us, cares about us. We got to open up first, then only we expect the same gesture from others. As they say, you got to love someone first to get loved.
On this eve of Christmas, let us shred the veil of loneliness and selfishness. Let us break the door of divide and open our arms to all. Let’s acts on Jesus teachings and make the world a better place again.
