Christmas Cards for the family, if you like human sacrifice,glory holes

In 2008 John Cessna’s mother called and told him since he was away at school, he wouldn’t be in the Christmas photo that year. She jokingly suggested he “sober up” and send out his own Christmas cards. She may regret it now…

In 2008 my mom instructed me to "sober up" and send my own Christmas cards to family and friends. Here's every year since, including the new one for 2016!

John Cessna is a comedian whose stories details a life misspent obsessing over 90s nostalgia, whiskey-fueled adventures, and the general absurdity of being an “adult.” His yearly alternative Christmas cards have been featured on Buzzfeed, the Daily Mail, someecards, and have been viewed over sixty million times. His latest sharing is on Reddit via Imgur. As usual, it’s gone viral.

One viewer wrote: “Heh, one of the few Imgur posts I actually remember from a year ago. Glad the tradition continues.”

Another added: “Lost it at Frosty. Well done.”

Another: “Freakin’ brilliant!! This is adulting done right!”

If you haven’t been lucky enough to see them before, they’re above in their hilarious, dark glory from 2008 onwards.
