I Don't Think They Celebrate

One more last quick fun with Christmas before it's really time to move on. To recap: while I refuse to acknowledge and celebrate holidays early (really, Target - do you have to have your Valentine's Day stuff out before Christmas day?), I also like to drag out the celebrating of Christmas a bit. Our tree will be up until the second week of January.

The main point though... at the beginning of December, Melisa and I were at a store where she happened to notice some interesting Christmas cards. I debated buying them just for the fun of sending them - and to see who would notice - but I didn't, which is why not all my Christmas cards are even out yet.

So would you have bought these?

I think it just means a really, really Merry Christmas. Kind of like, I'm soooo excited?

I think if the card had been designed with less of a traditional look, I might have been coerced into believing it was on purpose. However, with the traditional style of the card, I firmly believe it's a typo!

I think that is hilarious, and I would totally buy them. Do I think people would notice? Naw...but I think THAT would make me laugh even more about it!

Shows you how bad I am, took me looking at the card for about 3 minutes to see it.

Those are hilarious, you really should get them to send out.

I agree with Kimberly: when I saw them on the shelf, I was trying to figure out why they spelled it that way, thinking it was on purpose. But definitely, NO. :)

It's how Santa would say it! Probably a mistake, lol.

Haha! No, I wouldn't have purchased and mailed the cards. I would have taken a photo and blogged about it! Love it!

Lisa - I like your theory better than mine! It's far more ummmm charitable.

Kimberly - I'm definitely with you. The whole thing sorta cracks me up.

Kori - Part of the fun for me would be in seeing who noticed. Buuuuut I'm with ya that I bet most people wouldn't!

Tara - Shhhh don't tell but Melisa had to point out the card to me before I noticed....

Melisa - I still think you should have bought them and sent them. It would have been way too perfect!

Laural - Another good theory. I like it.

Mary - I'm glad someone's there with me on that one. ;) Then again, Melisa DID tweet it that day. She's a bit more timely than me, I suppose.

Lol--I, Ms. grammar policewoman, didn't notice anything wrong at first, till I started reading some of the other comments, and then I noticed the extra R.

I guess that's probably what happened with the Christmas card editors...They read what their brain told them it said--2 Rs.

It took me a while to figure it out, too. I don't think most people would notice, especially when opening it this time of year (everyone's in a rush!) :)

That typo (if that's what it is) would bug me too!

i honestly didnt notice the took me a bit I had to reread it twice.

how funny!!

Michelle January 6, 2011 at 8:57 PM  

Pat - I do it all the time. I know what I MEAN to say, and that's what I read... even when it's not what's in front of me.

Mrs4444 - Probably not, but I still get a secret little giggle from it!

Kelly - But would you send it to people just to see who said anything?

Bani - It's just so not expected, especially with such a simple phrase. Go fig!
