I found this great site, Order of St Nick, that sells awesomely inappropriate holiday cards. OK so I don't find them inappropriate but you probably wouldn't send one of these cards to your tightly-wound Evangelical Christian relatives unless you enjoy watching homophobic religious types go off on a biblical tirade. Some people just don't get humor.
Categories of holiday cards include:
- Great Depression
- Office Humor
But I digress.
Another reliable source of inappropriate cards is Urban Outfitters, and if you live in the US right now you can stock up for next year at discount prices on cards like this one. And while you're browsing UO, don't forget to check out the Giant Inflatable Mushroom for only $19.99!
However, if you live in a country that more of less makes online shopping from international retailers impossible by imposing ridiculous import taxes (Iceland), then you can find free online cards at www.someecards.com. This is also a good option if you are cheap (oh sorry, "frugal") or you never seem to be able to send your cards out in a timely manner (hey that's me!).
I won't be getting many holiday cards in the mail this year probably because:
- No one has time to go to the post office to buy airmail stamps for one friggin' card
- Most of my friends are not of the typical card-sending types (i.e. middle-aged and/or with family) and are more prone to saying 'Merry Xmas' via Facebook or MySpace
- I think I forgot to tell some people that I moved to Iceland. Oops.
