"Holiday" cards? Not in my America, By God...

It's Dec 15th, and I've received a total of 1 Christmas card. The rest wished me happiness in whatever ambiguous holiday I chose. So now we're celebrating emotions (happiness in this case) rather than meaningful days? Not in my America, by God! That's why when I picked out the cards I wanted to send to others I chose Christmas cards. Well, I would have if The Walmarts still sold them. But they didn't, so I did the next best thing. I scratched out the word 'Holiday' and wrote in "This would read Christmas if Walmarts wasn't so Politically Correct." I've gotten some good feedback so far. After the flat cat incident, I can use the extra Karma...:)

The award for the first one was from Rev. Grandma. Note the date of the postmark - she sent it before Thanksgiving. "Holiday" was printed on the card. She had to go out of her way to make it a Christmas card. Why? Because Walmart is UnAmerican, that's why.




The award for the funniest (and quarkiest) card I received this year goes to a coworker. If it's true, my guess is that his wife is pretty upset. Seasons Greetings? Holidays? Pfft. This was a Hallmark card, made in my hometown of Kansas City, MO. I guess they ran Jesus out of town so they could get the Light Rail public transportation amendment to pass.


The award for keeping Christmas alive goes to Denise from Imo's. It says Holidays twice, but it also has "Christmas" printed on the card. The difference? Not made in KC, not sold at Teh Walmartz.
