The anti-Christmas card

My dad is known as the Scrooge in our family. He’s not really a Scrooge – he makes Christmas dinner every year (and even made me one in August once), buys thoughtful gifts and will happily play silly games after Christmas tea. But since my step-mum died on Christmas Eve, it’s understandably not his favourite holiday. For years, we didn’t even put the tree up, although now that my little brother is old enough to understand Christmas the house gets decorated again. So when I decided to cross stitch all my cards this year, I knew my dad’s couldn’t feature any of your run-of-the-mill festive designs. Instead, I designed and then stitched the picture below, and even though it’s pretty simple I have to admit I’m really proud of it!

Bah humbug

Now all I have to do is actually make it into a card.

  1. What a great card! Love it! I am sorry about your step-mom! I totally understand that Christmas is not his favorite holidays. Since my mom passed away my dad does not care for Christmas either.
