Use Humor to Address Tough Economic Realities This Holiday

From Business Holiday Cards:

Everyone knows times are tough, so why not laugh at what we can't change?

That's exactly the idea behind a line of holiday greeting cards just released by Order of St. Nick, a company that specializes in edgy, funny greeting cards. Their new collection uses images and verses to hit at today's worse financial issues, from foreclosures to high gas prices.

One card deals with a lost 401K and offers the recipient a timely wish:

"Have a Great Depression and a Subprime New Year."

Another shows a Depression-era child rejoicing because Christmas dinner will feature squirrel instead of rat. Check out the whole line at Depressing Times.com.

These cards might be a good way to get a laugh out of customers stressed by recent events in the stock market and at the supermarket. But you have to be careful in your choice of recipients. Sending a subprime mortgage themed Christmas card to an employee or client who has just lost their home would be cruel, and we often don't know who is facing that issue.

Order of St. Nick has released its first set of “financial crisis Christmas cards” for the 2008 holiday season.

Topics that the cards make light of include the subprime mortgage crisis, high gas prices, unemployment, vanishing 401k, and health insurance woes. The paper greeting cards feature vintage photos from the Great Depression, enhanced with humorous verse such as “Have a Great Depression and a Subprime New Year” and “Obama’s new health care plan rocks! I only wish I still had that kidney I sold to pay my heating bill”.

Eight different designs are available exclusively online at www.depressingtimes.com. Consumers can buy the cards individually for $3.99 or in boxed sets of 10 for $18.99.
