How To Make Funny Christmas Cards For Friends

Not All Holiday Cards Are Sentimental And Serious

Humor can bind people together by relating experience and finding shared amusement in that experience. Holiday humor can be the same. Some of the most memorable Christmas cards you can send will be humorous cards. Just as there can be serious cards evoking joy at the late night visit from Santa Claus, the Magi making their way to Bethlehem, elves, reindeer, snowmen, children’s excitement at unwrapping presents, so too can there be a joke for every one of the above.


Funny Christmas Cards

Christmas jokes can have such a wide spectrum it can be intimidating to try to cover them all. Starting with Santa Claus and his preparations for his Christmas journey, to his elves and their workshop antics, Mrs. Claus caring for Santa, the reindeer and sleigh ride itself. Santa getting down the chimney, finding milk and cookies (or some strange substitute), getting caught while laying presents beneath the Tree, or the children’s dissatisfaction with their gifts lend rich ground for Santa jokes alone. And that’s not even starting with mall Santas dealing with canny child negotiators or would be kid lawyers!One near universal human experience is family and second only to the cliche of the fighting family at Thanksgiving, are contentious, boisterous, or just plain out of control family gatherings at Christmas. Animals celebrating Christmas, Christmas in unexpected places (desert island, anyone?), pets on Christmas, and jokes about naughty and nice (clean up your Facebook) can be found in every card collection. 


New Possibilities With Customization

Modern technology offering the photocard have given people a creative way to make their own amusing cards. Family or personal photos can depict the sender in humorous Christmas situations as Santa, a family of elves, portray snowborne antics, surprise (or dismay) at present unwrapping. How far can they push the boundaries of taste with a naughty or nice joke? Or is everyone in an elf hat ridiculous enough? And of course the tried and true humorous photocard, the pet. Dogs dressed as Santa or a reindeer, cats with Santa hats, bows, ribbons, either pet in the snow will simultaneously warm and amuse any pet owner recipient. Birds, fish, turtles receiving presents, how do they react? Do their humans know what they really want for Christmas? Getting creative with customization can be key with a truly humorous card. Shared experience, familiar imagery all play a part. With all the possibilities in making one’s own cards, getting creative and getting laughs from the dearest friends has never been easier.
