Christmas Cards

I have no idea what the joke is here, but I suspect the cartoonist is getting coal in his stocking this morning.

Getting Carded

This is by no means a critcism of this comic, because it’s funny, but… Why is finding “a non-offensive generic holiday card” even a real enough problem that it needs to be a subject for humor? None of this is brain surgery: You send Christmas cards to Christians. You send Chanukah cards to Jews. If you believe your Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist and atheist friends will feel slighted, you can always find a New Year’s card or something non-holiday-related.

If this is too much trouble for you, then don’t send cards. If you don’t know your friends well enough to know whether they’re Christian, they probably shouldn’t be on your list.

And Ms. Montague-Reyes is right: A card like this respects nobody’s holiday.

Christmas Card Question (WAY OT)

Filed under: Bill Bickel, Christmas cards — Cidu Bill @ 12:51 am
  • What’s the earliest it’s acceptable to mail out Christmas cards? I signed mine the same time I signed my Chanukah cards and I just know I’m going to lose the damn things if they sit around on my desk for too long. So I guess what I’m essentially looking for is permission from some Christians to mail them out right now.
