Christmas is here and like all festivals, you need a way of sending holiday greetings to all your friends and family. One great way to do that is with stickers. They express your emotions and are easy to share. They also save you the time of having copy-paste greetings into each individual private or group chat.

WhatsApp offers several sticker packs for birthdays and different festivals -- and it’s no different if you want to use stickers to wish your friends and family a Merry Christmas.

If you have an Android smartphone, you can try apps like Sticker maker or Stickers for WhatsApp.

  • On this screen, tap on any one of the tiles.
  • Now, you will be asked to select an image. You can choose from your gallery or click a new photo.
  • Once you’ve selected an image, you can crop it according to your needs. You can save up to 30 such images in a single sticker pack.
  • Once all your images in the sticker pack are ready, you can add them to WhatsApp by tapping on the Add to WhatsApp button.
  • Now, open a chat in WhatsApp and tap on the Emoji button in the text box. Now, tap on the Stickers icon. You should now see your personal WhatsApp sticker pack in the list.
