So, when I pick up my batches of Cheap and Cheerful Cards (early in the year, when the ones that didn't sell the previous year are going very cheaply) I look at them and make sure they're at least subtle about anything of that nature.
Well, the ones I got this year looked adequate for my purposes. Until I actually opened the packaging earlier today and found that the bottom half inch of each card - the bit that's not visible in the packaging covered by the little bit of paper saying who designed them and who published them - did have a specifically religious Christmas thingy on it after all.
Now, I've checked up with people about this sort of thing before (and the answer is normally along the lines of accepting the holiday wishes in the spirit in which they're offered and not actually being offended by it) but if anyone would like me to send a non-specific card instead (I still have a few cards left over from previous years) please just let me know. Again, all comments to here are screened and will remain so. (Or you can send a message to me through the LJ system. I think it works, although I haven't received any messages through it for quite a while. People who were going to send me their postal addresses through that system please note.)
Now I'll just head off, start writing up the cards for people who I'm certain won't be offended by them, and check back here in a few hours in case there is anyone who'd like me to do something different.
Exit, accompanied by a cloud of annoyance.
