Hello Whistlefish
I am not sure why this Christmas card web page is here in April, but it gives me chance to repeat myself!!
I have asked for several years why you can’t produce some (or even one) blank Christmas card. Many of your other cards have no words. I don’t think that Happy or Merry Christmas is appropriate for people suffering in some way. When I lost my daughter at 21, it seemed like an order when people said “Happy Christmas” or something similar. It felt like “Thou shalt be happy, get on with your life!”
Maybe in 2024?
Best wishes
