2020 has give us at Simple Things a lot to work with. Our Christmas card range is bigger than ever. We have a massive 24 funny, sweet and thoughtful festive greeting cards in our collection this year.
What a year 2020 has been to date huh!? Our cards are a reflection of some of the madness that is happening right now. But, we wouldn't be human if we didn't try find a bit of humor in these crazy, unpredictable times.
Over the last few weeks, I sat down and thought of the things either I wanted to hear or what I would like to say to a loved one in a card for Christmas 2020. I designed this Christmas card collection as a bit of a reprieve from the seriousness of the situation we have been surrounded by throughout the year. Hopefully these cards will give you or someone you know a much needed laugh.
In years to come we will be looking through our memory boxes and pull out a Christmas card from 2020, it will all come flooding back to us; A pandemic, locked in our homes for weeks on end, no travel, no toilet paper, no socializing with friends and barely with family. A lunatic running one of the most powerful countries on the planet. Floods, fires, hurricanes, global economic collapse,... holy shit.. someone hand me a glass of wine.. or 12. Remember when Brexit was a big deal!?
Us Irish are pros at finding a laugh in a totally inappropriate situation. It is how we deal with things. If we aren't making a joke, then relax, things are not too bad. I have a lot of jokes about 2020.
It is good to be reminded of these times. Good, awful, boring, we have all been impacted in some way. It would be a shame to pretend it is a normal Christmas, we need celebrate ourselves for making it through, for coming together when all hell is breaking loose.
