If I had a quarter for every time I was exposed to the word recession this year, I'd have a pretty little fund built up for holiday gifts. The economy has been the cause of so much stress and heartache, and it's hard to want a reminder of those feelings during a time that's supposed to be joyful.
There's a line of Merry Recession Christmas cards that is banking on the recession having a place in this holiday season. The company thinks its cheeky cards will make your friends smile and proclaims, "Your own personal bailout has arrived."
The greeting cards come with messages like, "Everyone's getting jipped this holiday season . . . Enjoy the card." You can buy the whole set of 10 cards for $25.
