This Guy's Christmas Card 'Hack' Is The Most Hilarious Way To Save Money

The presents are unwrapped, the tree has been thrown on the curb, and life continues into the new year until next holiday season. But between now and then there are a whole lot of other holidays and special occasions to be celebrated. If you’re the sort to send cards, you’re probably looking for the perfect illustration and sentiment to convey your feelings via the U.S. Postal Service.

But Twitter user Joe Heenan has another idea. Just use whatever you got! Heenan shared his altered Christmas cards that have been spruced up with nothing more than a black marker and some ideas. It’s a very economical way to celebrate the people you love in life:

Perfect for any occasion—except you should know, Joe, that same sex marriage is just called marriage now, especially if you’re congratulating somebody! But otherwise, a total hit:

A few people even had their own examples:

A wood burner is really reaching, but why not find all sorts of things to celebrate? Goodness knows I have enough unused cards lying around.

Twitter Just Noticed Something Odd On Melania's Birthday Card To Donald

President Trump got a number of birthday shoutouts on Twitter this week, but none stood out more than the casual greeting he received from his wife, Melania.

Not only did she wait until a leisurely 10pm to tweet his birthday greeting, but the card she posted contained a suspicious orange smudge.

Seriously, what IS that thing?

Fortunately, Twitter had plenty of theories.

The theories kept coming:

But let’s be honest, we all know what that gross smudge REALLY is…

Everyone loves a good conspiracy theory.

But maybe the Trumps are just bad at birthdays. Let’s not forget the birthday tweet President Trump sent to his wife back in April. You know, the one with the American flag that only had 39 stars?

The FBI Made A Hilariously Bad Holiday Greetings Card And They're Getting Roasted

It’s the time of year that you start to hear “happy holidays” from friends, family, and businesses whose mailing lists you accidentally signed up to five years ago. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, which gets billions in taxpayer dollars to protect us, is no exception. Except this year they didn’t really seem to put much effort into it. In fact, it looks like an intern spent all of five minutes on it. And that’s being generous.

In fact, it looks like an intern spent all of five minutes on it. And that’s being generous. Here’s how they wished their followers on Twitter happy holidays…

LOOK AT THAT WORK OF ART. Unsurprisingly, they’re getting roasted pretty hard for it by Twitter users.

A Total Stranger Paid For This Woman's Christmas Shopping When Her Card Was Declined

Zara Chowdhury from Manchester in the United Kingdom was shopping at LUSH recently when she got to the checkout and her card was declined. After waiting ten minutes, the cashier tried the card again and it was declined for a second time. 

Chowdhury asked the cashier to keep her basket behind the counter while she ran to an ATM to take cash out. But when she came back, she was shocked to find that someone had paid for her items, at the cost of £43 ($ 52.)

Girl Accidentally Spends $733 At Sephora On Her Mom's Credit Card And It's Hilarious

My Amazon basket is currently full of items that I want but can’t afford. Chances are, you’re exactly the same. For Twitter user Alex Dello, she had a Sephora basket full to the brim with makeup worth $ 733. Which like the rest of us, she wants but can’t afford. 

So when she recently entered an old gift card to see how much was on it, she was surprised to see that the order went through for some reason. Her reaction was pretty special…

According to Dello, her mom eventually stopped trying to get a refund and is going to give it to her for Christmas.

Twitter was shocked by just how generous the mother had decided to be…

These Two Cousins Have Exchanged The Same Birthday Card For Forty-Seven Years

In a world where birthday wishes are delivered via a Facebook post of an embarrassing photo from childhood, it’s hard to remember a time when actual paper cards were exchanged. Indeed, whimsical greetings were written by hand and exchanged without a reminder from the Internet (side note: does anyone remember the last time they licked an envelope?)

Well, as it turns out, not everyone has adopted the impersonal, 21st-century approach to birthday greetings. Two family members are giving us serious #FriendshipGoals with their shared birthday card. Redditor LincolnsLostSpeech uploaded a picture of the card which belongs to his fiancée’s uncle and his cousin.

The two have exchanged the same birthday card for FORTY-SEVEN years. It was purchased for twenty-five cents back in the day.

Typically, re-gifting is considered rude, but it’s pretty cool when it happens ninety-four times. And hey, the card said so. It’s in surprisingly good condition too— we would definitely have spilled a birthday cocktail on it by now.  

Could this family be any cuter?

Well done, Bill and Steve. 

The Internet can’t get enough of the cuteness. 

The picture of the card has been viewed nearly two million times in just two days.

It even brought back some nostalgia for a Redditor with a similar experience. 

…Anyone else suddenly in the mood to start cute family traditions? We’re having some major feels.
