18 non-schmaltzy holiday cards

Hoppy Holidays Card (Cracked Designs)

The holidays are coming up on us faster than our old age (amiright?), and aside from buying gifts for people you love and people you hate (coworkers and in-laws, mostly), you have to send out holiday cards.

Rather than sending dramatic, long-winded missives about how "challenging" your year was (nobody cares, life is a struggle for everyone) that are surely going to be endlessly ridiculed as soon as everyone opens them, inject a little humor into this year's holiday cards with these.
