Creepmas Day 3: Time to Write a Few Cards...



We received the first Christmas cards of the season yesterday from his Lordships cousins in England.  As is popular over there, the cards depict the 3 wise men and usually benefit a charity.  However, state side, I have been having darker thoughts regarding holiday greetings.  Let's see what's out there:



 Here is a clever card created by an artist on etsy.  That's her husband, as a boy, sitting on Santa's lap. She added the interesting background art.
 
Than of course I might get the hankering to include a few monsters in my greetings


 
 
How about some cards that quote from popular Christmas songs?  I found a couple here:
