The Thirteen Days of Creepmas -- Day 8

I was out of town for the last three days, so I'm catching up with this now!

On the eighth day of Creepmas, my true love gave to me...some creepy holiday cards!

(I somehow doubt most of these are actually available for purchase, but you never know...)

I think this may have been WHY Grandma got run over by a reindeer.  Remember, we only heard ONE side of that story...

I think I might have seen this one in the Victorian Trading Co. catalog.

Looks like this one was actually a real card.  I think it's from Australia, and that's an emu stalking the little girl.  Could this have been the beginning of "emo"????  Inquiring minds want to know...

I'm not sure just WHERE this idea came from...

 Yes, I think this was actually a Victorian Christmas card.  Go figure...

Had enough yet?  Me, too!!  ;-)

  2. Is that a girl pig or a boy pig? I can't really tell. And I'm not sure why I care. :)

    1. I think it's a girl. Note the green scarf on the hat, and I believe that's a dress under the coat. As to why you care, can't help you there! ;-)
