This loneliest woman has some hilarious retorts to the Christmas cards of her family!
What happens to people who are single on holidays? They are treated as out casts and probably spend parties by themselves talking to the host’s dog.
Something similar happened to this particular girl who is the only unmarried one out of 5 siblings. The other married siblings have their own Christmas cards tradition, while she remained in her parent’s Christmas cards, alone.
She was always asked by family and friends why she was still single ever since her siblings got married. Eventually she got fed up with the questions and last straw came when her parents did something unprecedented to her.
Let’s find out what her parents did, which led to this woman become the darling of all singles on the internet.
1The Brainy and cool Single Bridget!
The woman known as Single Bridget is actually Bridget McCartney, a 28 year old lady from Texas. She is the youngest of five children and is still unmarried. The rest of her siblings are married with children of their own.
They all have their own Christmas tradition of sending out family cards with their photos on cards for holidays. But Bridget is still on her family’s Christmas card. But as time passed on, her parents started to find it weird that she was the only adult child still in their Christmas card and decided to do something about it.
2The tradition of Christmas Cards
Bridget’s family has the tradition of sending family and friends Christmas cards with their pictures on them. Since her siblings are married and have children, they do their own Christmas card things except for her brother.
Bridget being single still used to feature on her parents’ Christmas card until recently. But her parents began to find it awkward on including her in their card, since she was the only unmarried child of the family. So they cut her out of the card in 2010.
Miffed with their decision, Bridget decided to send her own Christmas cards, celebrating her single life and celebrating Christmas as a single person.
3Her funny cards
Since 2010, she has started sending out Christmas cards with herself on the cover and some of her animal friends, celebrating Christmas as a single soul.
The eye-catching thing about these cards is the humor quotient of the images she uses on the cards. At first her family was caught off guard when they started receiving her cards in 2010, but eventually as each year went by, they have accepted that she will continue sending such cards, until she gets married.
Meanwhile she still tried to get into her parent’s Christmas card and wasn’t allowed each year and hence she sent out her own Christmas cards. She used to get her cards printed at the Costco, where employees loved her cards.
4How all these cards went viral?
Recently, her cards were featured on internet sites and became viral instantly. People started calling her with the ideas of marketing her cards; design Christmas card for them and make money of them.
For Bridget, the feeling has just sunk in that her funny, self-depreciating Christmas cards are no longer just for family and friends. She says, “I think people who send out Christmas cards are trying to show you the best representation of themselves. It’s families. Nice outfits, that sort of thing.”
“And my cards are the worst representation of myself, sort of poking fun at that ideal. People find that relevant. They find that funny.” Now she has become famous for being not only funny but famous for being single and drunk.
