Ugh so true about the Christmas newsletter. 90 percent of the time it is just an excuse for people to brag about their children.

LOL.... I like your P.S. and your P.S.S.
This is so funny.

LOL I like the unsubscribe the best :) We used to send a photo Christmas card but I stopped last year b/c I was getting less and less in return and some people we sent to merely out of obligation and not b/c we wanted to.

Haha :-D Some of the letters my mom sends me are very similar to this... "Your brothers send their love. They're both doing fantastic and wonderful". I'd love to just say "Mom, they're both man children, living in your house for free. They're total screw ups. Tell them I love them too, and to hurry up and grow the frig up!"

I think I'd hurt her feelings though :-P

SO funny! I can totally understand the feeling. I'm covered in cat hairs chasing oreos with wine too, so to speak.

Hilarious!! And haven't these relatives heard of FaceBook? If I wanted to find out loads of irrelevant, boring c*** about my relatives and friends latest news all I have to do is open my FB page!! That way they could annoy me for the other 364 days of the year, and let;s face it the round robbin is just a precis of the c*** they have been posting all year anyway.

Here in the UK last year someone published a parody collection of letters and it made a great stocking filler. Wish I could lay my hands on it so I could post the Title etc. Will post again if I can find where we put it. I am guessing the downstairs loo in the comedy library!

Nice. I keep hoping Facebook will help kill these letters off. One year when everything went wrong for us we thought about using photoshop and creating our own special letter complete with pictures of the kids scaling Everest and meeting world leaders, too bed we never had time. We never send out Christmas letters, but your post makes me want to revisit our earlier idea for a fake letter.

Hilarious! It was funny that you poked fun of the wine recap and the fact they taste good with various cheese and chocolates, then closed with you chasing oreos with wine.

&Nana funny you say that because isn't it getting to that point where people are just texting now? I can't imagine getting one of these long letters via text though!

Roaring with laughter here - that's exactly the response I'd want to send out, if I only had the nerve. My brother-in-law is famous for those Christmas family newsletters, where it looks like all his children are the next thing to Nobel Prize winners and makes all the rest of us feel like total losers. Sweet guy, but I can't stand those letters. The wine and oreos is already sounding like a grand idea. ;)
