Christmas is all about being near family, attending meet-ups with long-lost cousins and sending out greeting cards.
However when one school kid found out that his family had gone ahead and sent out their family Christmas card without him, he went ahead and created ones of his very own.
John Cessna was away at school in 2008 when he got a called from his mom telling him that he wouldn’t be included in the Christmas card.
His mom suggested in a joking manner that her son “sober up” and create his own sense of holidays by sending out Christmas cards with his face on them.
And that’s exactly what he did.
Now, thankfully for us, John has kept the tradition going and keeps adding to his repertoire of epic cards every year, inspired by his mother’s joke.
John has gone on to create a card showing six men fighting one man with the slogan “Christmas is when carols are sung and bells are rung”.
Another card shows a man dressed in a smart suit sitting on a step drinking Eggnog and eating a muffin with the caption “This holiday season… eh, screw it.”
Also among the viral cards he’s created is one that shows a man digging in a snow-covered field, with a body bag beside him, alongside the caption “Some gifts… stay wrapped and hidden”.
According to John, his cards have been viewed online over seven million times.
We can’t wait to see what he thinks of next year.
