This Womans Lonely Christmas Cards Are Single Persons Holiday Spirit Animal
What do you do for a holiday card when all four of your siblings are married with children and your parents, who you've been posing with since you were a kid give you a 'find your own card' ultimatum? Cry? That's not what one woman did.

And of course, I already had a small bottle of whiskey in my pocket, so it worked out perfectly.'
