I’ve always been a big fan of holiday cards. I’ve even written a post about them already.
Still, I love to write the holiday cards and this year was no different. Okay, it was a lil different…
This year, I accidentally bought religious Christmas cards. Imagine my dismay. And I don’t just mean they shout Merry Christmas, which I try to avoid, but they actually have scripture added to them. While some people on my list enjoy a specifically religious Christmas, most of my loved ones are much more secular, like me, and I can imagine their reactions to me sending New Testament verses would include a lot of eye rolling and smirking.
Of course, there may be a handful of people who will mistakenly feel relieved that I’ve finally found Jesus, which may bring false joy.
So, I mailed the religious cards to people who get on about the reason in their season, MORE JESUS FOR THEM! For the rest, I put on my glasses and shopped for new cards.
I generally avoid cards with Merry Christmas printed in them, but this year, due to my mishap, some people will unfortunately be wished a big ol Merry Christmas. They’ll get over it. I hope. If not, I got about twenty of those really religious cards left, and I’m no stranger to spite.
I don’t care what cards people send to me. I think it’s nice to be thought of. Any time someone cares enough to send me snail mail, I’m pretty flattered about it. I mean, really, if you sent me a card that read Boo You Whore, I’d hang it up all the same.
“Aw, you used a postage stamp? For me? So sweet!”
Do you send out holiday cards?
