If you always sent out those lovely and sometimes cheesy family Ho Ho ho photo cards, don’t let your divorce detour you from another family photo–op with a twist. Get all dolled up and have a family photo taken with the finest mall Santa you can find. Some big city malls feature a shirtless Santa just for the ladies
Childless ladies can do the same thing. Resist the urge to dress up you and your pets in identical outfits for your greeting card. I know how much you love your pets, but a glam shot of you sitting on the old man’s lap is a better way to go. Be your own Santa baby.
You may just say, “Oh what the heck”, I don’t feel like decking anything except my ex-husband. Suddenly the scene from When Harry Met Sally of Meg Ryan dragging a Christmas tree down the street pops into your head.
Who needs that? Maybe you do. Maybe you don’t. It’s up to you.
