The countdown to the holidays is on. So why not bring a smile to the faces of your friends and family with a clever holiday card? In case you didn't know, Christmas cards got their start in the United Kingdom in the 1840s. Dreamed up by a postal worker looking to promote the then-new mail service to a wider audience, holiday greetings have long since become an annual tradition. And while some love to be classic and sentimental with their seasonal greeting cards, why not take a different approach and bring a little bit of humor into the mix?

There are plenty of holiday cards that will give your recipients a good chuckle. Whether they be holiday puns or a funny nod to those all-too-perfect Christmas family photos, these clever cards are as relatable as they are hilarious. And, we're not just talking about Christmas here—there's a Hanukkah llama and a latke eating pugs, to name a few quirky characters in these cards. Not into the holidays? There's even a Festivus card to take care of that!

So what are you waiting for? With the holidays fast approaching, it's time to spread a little cheer with these holiday greetings sure to make your loved ones chuckle.
