There’s not really a polite way to say this, so I’ll just say it. If your Christmas card features photos of your children on the front, I’m just gonna throw it away.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for family photos and I don’t mind a Christmas greeting with a shot of the whole gang. I will gladly hang that along with the other Christmas cards we’ve received. That’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about the Christmas cards that only have kids on the front; two scamps in sweaters in front of yet another fireplace and I have no idea who they are.
Those are the cards I’m talking about. I won’t hang them up for the same reason I don’t cut out pictures of kids from magazines and hang them up in my house. I don’t know those kids.
Last year we received like 10 cards that were basically photos of kids and every time we were asked, “Oh, who’s that?” Sarah and I would just kinda look at each other and shrug our shoulders. We don’t know these kids.
And this year, they’re not taking up our wall space.
I’m not mad, I’m just saying.
