I think it’s so cheesy when I receive holiday cards that have pictures of adults on them. Seriously I don’t want to stick a picture of a 30 year old couple posing with their dog on my fridge. If I have a friend or family member with kids, I want to see the kids, especially babies. Otherwise they’re not cute, they’re dopey. Am I being a biznit or does anyone else find this annoying?

@Aquaria: there was a post exactly like this a few days ago although I don’t know where it is! But I agree !

@Aquaria: LOL I think this is so funny that you are posting this, because I wanted to send a holiday card with my dog Daisy dressed as an Elf. Then my mother in law and DH said, well not everyone is going to know who Daisy is. And I said well we are only sending the card to the people who would which are the people we are closest too. And DH said we should send a picture of us posing with Daisy and I said, um no, no one wants to look at us, they care about the cute dog or babies!!!!
I am showing this post to DH tonight when he gets home to prove that no one wants to look at US hahahaha

@Aquaria: Personally, I like to see the whole family.

I like to see the adults. Mostly because I’m curious to see how they look/what they’re wearing, especially if I haven’t seen them in a while.
But at the same time, I’d feel kind of weird sending out a card with just a picture of me and my husband on it, so.

@Aquaria: I like whole family ones when the couple has kids, but if it’s just two adults posing with a pet or something…I find that a little weird.

We’re probably not going to have kids so does that mean we can’t ever send out picture cards? I don’t understand why it’s so weird to put a picture of ourselves on a card. I enjoy receiving picture cards of adults and children. Especially cards from people we haven’t seen in awhile.

@Aquaria: not a bit! A couple is a family- you don’t need to have kids to be a family or send family Christmas cards. If they have kids, and there are multiple pictures, the kids don’t have to be in every photo. It bothers me when people send family Christmas cards and its only the kids- the parents should be in it too!
ETA- People send save the dates and wedding photos of just the bride and groom for their fridge- who are 30- is that weird too? It seems the same to me.

I don’t think it’s weird. I like seeing a picture of the family. Even if it’s two adults and their fur baby.

I don’t see what’s wrong with this? I’d love to get a card with a cute holiday pup on it!

We send photo cards of just us every year and know a couple other kidfree couples who do as well, and I love them. We usually get good reviews from other people, although I wonder with all the disdain on WB if some friends just lie lol. I can’t say I get the “adult pictures are weird” thing. People post photos of themselves only all the time on Facebook and other social media and it’s totally acceptable, so why isn’t my kid free family photo acceptable on a card? Seems silly to draw that arbitrary line of “dopey” instead of just appreciating everyone’s families, whatever they look like.

@Aquaria: Where I’m from, most people don’t send out Christmas cards. I would be in utter shock if I recieved a Christmas card with a picture of two adults and a pet on it. Does this happen a lot? I live in a small town so usually the week of Christmas we make the rounds and just go see most everyone we know.

I’ve never recieved a card with just a picture of a couple on it. It wouldn’t be a huge deal but I would probably be a little surprised if I got one. The only photo cards I have gotten have pictures of young kids, or of the kids with their parents. Everyone else just sends me regular cards without a personal photo on it, and those are what I send out as well. I would never think to send one with a picture of me and FH, I would feel awkward about that.

I don’t find cards with couples pictures only to be cheesy at all. I had no clue people felt this way.

Just don’t send me cards period! I am not sentimental and if you want to send me wishes, call or text me. Cards get glanced at and put in the trash. Sorry, I am a grinch 🙂
