The endless crowds at the seasonal sales, the untangling of Christmas lights, wondering how many Christmas songs will be stuck in your head before the month is over…Yep, it’s that most wonderful time of the year: Christmas! Of course, these days, the spirit of Christmas has less to do with anything religious and more to do with throwing on your favourite Christmas pullover.That spirit also extends to to our Christmas card greetings. Like gifts, Christmas greetings are something we all must give and receive. But aside from that silly photo card of your cousin’s family or that card with €5 in it from an elderly relative who forgets you’re now an adult, how many Christmas cards are you really likely to remember?We are all familiar with the standard non-religious, non-too- anything kind of greetings that seem to blanket each holiday season. Well, what if you could say something a bit different and more personal?!
This month’s challenge is to create a non-religious Christmas card greeting.
Make your greeting stand out from all the other ones we will receive this year. It could be full of punchy Ho Ho Ho’s. Or as sugary sweet as your homemade eggnog. Or, perhaps it includes a funny quip about Rudolph the Reindeer. Simply share your Christmas spirit with us—all while keeping it non-religious. After all, it’s the spirit of Christmas that everyone can get into!
New inspiration sounds like a great new year resolution to us!

You guys probably think you’re doing a great thing by doing a non-religious contest for Christmas. However, you’re not. In fact, you’re doing a disservice to everyone. Christmas is ALL about Christ. It is pathetic attempts to make everyone comfortable with it by taking JESUS out that destroys the spirit of Christmas. Would you tell Jews to take the Jewishness out of Hanukkah? Would you tell Muslims to dismiss their religiousness when the annual pilgrimage to Mecca during December? This heinous backlash against Christianity is bordering on the absurd, and we should continue to remember that Jesus is the reason for the season. Because Christmas without Christ makes about as much sense as a sales letter without a headline! So here’s my entry let’s see if you have the courage to post it…and my comment.
WE WISH YOU A MERRY SOMETHING
We’re all different, half the planet’s in the middle of winter while in the other half it’s summer.
But whatever your weather and wherever you are, ‘tis the season to be merry.
So friends, family, food and presents, what’s not to love?
1. Enjoy the festive snow! (Before global warming takes over.)
2. Shake your belly like a bowl full of jelly, cozy up with hot chocolate in front of your telly. Merry Netflix-mas!
3. Christmas is a state of mind. Pay me back, I’ll treat you kind.
4. Rudolph and PETA have a mutual understanding. This holiday season, take a break from activism!
5. Santa wears red but a Republican he’s not. Just 3 more years of Trump is all we got! (Now that’s a cheerful thought.)
A little fun at somebody else’s expense.
It’s all in the delivery.
The holiday is here that all broke people fear.
Painting the town red and green, a month after Halloween.
From malls, parks and stores, decorated with concocted folklores.
Sending sleighs, reindeers and elves, out there to empty store shelves.
Whether you’re naughty, nerdy or nice, everyone’s sure to get a surprise.
Tis’ the time to wear your Black Friday sale, while contemplating life with the family and watch your eggnog go stale.
So come cheer, make merry and keep your chimney clean,
Cause, it’s that time of the year when nobody goes lean.
Cakes, bakes and stuffing,
Make the holiday more interesting,
Have a good evening,eggnog and all,
A snow-filled and fun day,
And a very merry fooding.
