The 2012 Kardashian Christmas Card: better or worse than previous years?

Ah, it doesn’t feel like Christmas until the Kardashian-Jenner Kristmas Kard has been unveiled. Happy Kardashian Kristmas!! This is the 2012 Christmas Card from the Kardashian-Jenner clan. This year’s theme seems to be a “White Christmas”. I’m also including some previous years’ cards at the end of the post too, for comparison. Note that Kim included poor dead Mercy the Kitty in the card. Mercy even got a shout-out in the special “Kardashian poem” inside the card: “Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, Kim was waiting for Santa, while her cat Mercy played with a mouse…”

Note that Kanye West is NOT included. Which I don’t think is that big of a deal – it’s not like Kanye and Kim are married, you know? Why would he be on the card? According to In Touch, Kim’s boyfriends never make the card because Kris Jenner’s rule is “only husbands and baby-daddies allowed.” In Touch’s source says, “The only guy she’s ever had on the family card was her first husband. If she marries Kanye, he’ll be on the card. If they get pregnant before they get married, it will have to be discussed with the family. That’s how Scott [Disick] got on the cards.”

    Honey Boo-Boo’s is better. ;)

  2. marie says:

    and here I was just using Snapfish to create my card, what the hell was I thinking? this family, so full of themselves

  3. Mags says:

    Looks more like a new year’s pic. I wonder why Bruce’s kids are never in the pics. It seems they are always left out.

  4. lucy2 says:

    Equally bad. Though at least there’s less cleavage showing this year.

  5. hikkilove says:

    say what you want about the kardashians, but ive always admired how close they are as a family. not a lot of people care about family and ive always gotten the feeling they do. maybe theyre trashy and tasteless and fame whores, but they have at least one admirable quality.

    • HadleyB says:

      But thats not true .. Khloe even said she didnt talk to Kim or several members of her family for years ..until the show started.

      It will be interesting to see who still stays in touch or this closeness they portray on TV will stay after they stop filming/promoting crap.

      I don’t think all of them are as close knit as they seem or talk about. Khloe is only now spending time with Kim because of the show and her mother because she makes them $$$.

      I think the younger sisters seem close for real .. at least for now. When one starts getting more popular or gigs, we will see how long it lasts since fame is very important to everyone in this family.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Are you even serious right now? These people hate each other. Currently, it is Kim and Kris vs. Khloe, Kourt and Bruce…the two main battles are Bruce vs. Kris, mainly bc of how they “parent” the younger girls, and there always seems to be tension btwn Khloe and Kim…this is not a close-knit family, but you can bet they’ll put out a card! Besides, anyone can tell it was many different shots that were all pasted together – LAME!

    • emmie_a says:

      I don’t watch the show so I don’t know their dynamic – but they are being PAID to be a family and to interact and be together!!

      And I don’t like the pic — too much white. But poor Mercy sure does look cute. RIP

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Did you notice Mercy’s in a glassed-in box? Some life for a poor little kitteh.

      • emmie_a says:

        Oh no – I didn’t see that (can’t see much detail in the picture)… Poor mercy. I did notice that Kim wasn’t holding him, which makes him look like nothing more than a prop. ugh

    • Glit says:

      Then what about Bruce’s children? Why aren’t they all on the Kard if everyone’s so Klose? (sorry, I Kouldn’t help myself!)

  6. HouseofBeatrix says:

    I live for their Kristmas cards. I don’t know why, maybe because they are gaudy as all hell, but I LOVE them.

    Judge me if you want, I can take it.

    • LadyMTL says:

      ITA! I know they’re gaudy and tacky and so on, but I like them regardless. Anyway, this year’s doesn’t seem as bad as the others…less up its own ass, I guess?

    • Suze says:

      I love them too, in all their tacky, tasteless, exploitative, trashy, nasty, ugly, sentiment-free wonder!

      They have nothing to do with Christmas or family.

      They are an art form like no other.

      (I think it was last year CB posted Kardashian Christmas cards from days gone by. When their dad was alive, they were an actual, real family and the cards were nice. But that was then…)

    • deehunny says:

      I too love their crazy, dramatic cards. Can’t help it. If they divorce they won’t be doing these extravagant cards anymore 😒

  7. arock says:

    scott what-his-name is a creeper, he gives me skeevy shivers. like im-afraid-hes-going=to-make-someone-into-a-lampshade-and then-continue-to-floss-his-teeth skeevy.

  8. Jess says:

    I think it’s cute of Kourtney and her family, and of Khloe and Lamar. They look normal and not try-hard.

  9. Jen says:

    Here’s what I noticed:
    1) Bruce and Momager are NOT anywhere NEAR each other, aka divorce pending.
    2) Kitty must have been photo-shopped in post-mortem. Ew.
    3) Legsy is now the star of the family instead of old Titsandass-her-name.

    • Jen says:

      Or just MAYBE Mercy was taxidermied and that’s why she’s on display in the box?!?!!!

      • Miffy says:

        Yes. So much yes. The box is actually attached to wheels. If the Kristmas Kard goes down well Kim is going to put a string on the box and wheel it around for photo ops like a tiny, post-mortem pope mobile.

    • Jennie says:

      I noticed that as well (kris & Bruce not near each other), why wouldn’t the matriarch’s of the family be center focus together.
      I like kourtney, she’s real, but I cannot stand Kim & Kris. They are so fake and use everyone to make money.

    • serena says:

      LOL on the third. Also, this is totally true, and it’s stupid putting Scott Disick in the centre.

      Poor kitty.. what a cruel destiny.

    • wild flower says:

      Oh Jen…you are funny. Mommie Dearest has pointed her laser devil beam at Kendall. She doesn’t stand a chance, poor thing. Bye Kim.

  10. Selena says:

    Schrödinger’s cat

  11. David99 says:

    They look like a Den of Thieves

  12. truthful says:


    this cow is still married….helloooooo

    doesn’t look holiday–ish

    looks attention whorish, another
    VAPID photoshoot.

    • Masque says:

      LOL! Since Kris H is still technically a husband and Kim is klearly….er….clearly not worried about a divorce, why didn’t he get on the kard….er….card (damn them and their terrible spelling influence!)?

  13. Erinn says:

    I actually…. hate to say this… but it looks better to me. More festive than the angry looking one from last year.

  14. Lisa says:

    The Kardashians never get “better.”

  15. Nev says:

    cute cards!!!!!

  16. Samigirl says:

    Is it cute? Sure. If one of my friends sent me a card like this, I would die. BUT, I’m certain my friends wouldn’t have their crap airbrushed and photoshopped as much. I prefer more “real” moments. When one baby is crying, and the mom is obviously smiling through gritted teeth bc she is soooo irritated. Stuff like that. That’s just me though.

    Also, that last picture…her poor breasts are suffocating and her nipples are a little wonky :-/

  17. L says:

    Compared to other years where it’s dark, no one is smiling, and looks like a photoshoot in a funeral home-Yes this year’s picture is much better.

    Still hate this family.

  18. Feisty says:

    Why is Scott the front and center of the card? And Bruce looks especially… feminine in this pic.

  19. SolitaryAngel says:

    Kraptastic, one and all.

  20. hmmmpf says:

    The cat got taxidermied (check the box on the left).

  21. anneesezz says:

    Why does Kim keep wearing clothes that don’t fit? How can she breathe in that dress. Plus, she looks like she’s doing the walk of shame. Her makeup is all smeared and she has bedhead. She is such a skanky mess.

  22. Chell says:

    Bruce looks like he is setting sail on the “Carnival Cruiselines Celebrity Transvestite ship”! Seriosuly~ he looks so fucking insane, I just can’t…
    As much as I hate Kris, I can see why they are most likely going to end up getting a divorce! LOOK at him/her, whatever it is! Could you sleep w/that?
    After all that, can I just say these people are so crazy that I could look at this card all day & laugh! Do they realize what a joke they are?! Love it!

    • truthful says:

      Its her damn fault that Bruce looks like that, when they first got married, she suggested that he get a face lift.

      gone is the face that used to grace “wheaties” boxes, Bruce was handsome before this VAPID blood sucking family.

      google it

  23. Ash says:

    At least they’re smiling on this year’s card. The others look like they were taken in a fancy morgue.

  24. Jenna says:

    Lord Disick is right up front and center. That makes it hilariously good.

  25. brin says:

    They sure bring out the ho in “Ho Ho Ho”.

  26. serena says:

    I don’t know if it’s Kyle or Kendall but I find the two younger girls dresses too revealing. Why is she (I believe that is Kendall)flashing her legs like that? This is a teenager.. this is totally unproper.

  27. Marianne says:

    It looks more like A New Year’s Card. But defintely has more of a celebratory feel then their past ones….so….yay?

  28. Elceibeno08 says:

    I like it. They look more human and less stuck up than last year. The younger sisters look cute.

  29. Dawn says:

    Once again this card shows the world just what passes for so-called celebrity in the U.S. None of these people other than Bruce (yes he was a hell of an athlete in his day) have any true talent. Well I guess you can count pimpa-mamma too as she is one talented con artist. The others just read a script and pretend and then bask in the glow of their money. Kim is nothing more than a high scale working girl who has earned her fame and her money on her back/stomach. Everything about her is fake and phony and 99.9% of what comes out of her mouth is a mistruth. I sure hope that they are paying Paris Hilton a percentage of what they bring in because without her they would be nothing more than a well-to-do California family that none of us would have to know about. They are all fame whores and nothing more but my oh my how they must laugh at their “fans” for thinking they are anything thing more. And Bruce’s other kids see through Kris and would never be on this kard for any amount of money. Just ask Brody. Yuk doesn’t cover this band of thieves.

  30. Hahahahaha says:

    Has the Adams family 2012, gone to heaven in 2013? Will they really be gone, really?

  31. silver says:

    the tall teen wannabe model sister behind Kim must be PISSED that the airbrush guy added shadowing that made her look pregnant just to make Kim’s ass look even bigger. I’d be like WTF!!!

  32. Relli says:

    Wow I thought the little one was Khloe, I had to do a double take, she is really starting to look like her. I wonder if that is the 4th sister’s original face before she started to try to look more like the Kitty Killer.

    Also I didn’t notice Mercy at first… thats just bad taste and looks like a complete afterthought.

  33. hmmm says:

    It’s weird this is being called the “Kardashian Christmas Card” when there are only 3 people who use the last name Kardashian actually in the card (Kim, Kourtney, and Rob). They are the minority in the pic.

    • Calimero says:

      That’s exactly my feelings.. Bruce Jenner is the only one who deserves recognition but everything is about the Kardashian, horrible family

  34. HulaHoop says:

    Better but that whole family is still horrible.

  35. Barbara says:

    Baby Penelope has an extremely low hairline that’s why she’s always in hairbands…

  36. Sweet Dee says:

    1. I do not like the slicked-back front of hair look that seems to be becoming popular, ie Kim’s in the newest photo.

    2. I want to kidnap that little cutie Mason and keep him as my own so he doesn’t turn into Scott II.

  37. Miffy says:

    I like how Kim and Scott Disick went for the same hairstyle.

    • Sweet Dee says:

      Right! What do we call that? Faux mullet? The lady slickback? It’s hideous.

      • Miffy says:

        All I can think of when I see that hair (on Kim or Scott) is the Futurama ’80′s business guy’ episode. It just looks greasy.

  38. Nev says:


    all the kardashian “hate” is getting boring gotta say.

  39. nikzilla37 says:

    Where’s Kanye?

  40. Mara says:

    This one is much better, so sweet now they have a new member in their family !

  41. palermo says:

    I’m sure their friends can’t wait to get this in the mail. Nothing Christmasy about it at all, I think they are disgusting egomaniacs.

  42. Word says:

    Kim has the “gift” that keeps on giving ,The Herp

  43. Vesper Lynd says:

    LOL…so it’s not considered Christmas until the KKK is unveiled?

    Note: Kardashian-Jenner Kristmas Kard…I live in the Bayou so the 3 K’s kinda popped the wrong way.

  44. truthful says:

    Khloe said for this card they never show up together since they are all so “busy”

    they photograph separate and merge this mess together.

    all those people and not one talent, LOL

  45. JudyK says:

    Talk about being photoshopped to the hilt! I’d rather look at REAL people.

  46. Nico says:

    That shit cray.

  47. natalina says:

    a photoshopped christmas card…OKAY i like when they all dont smile better

  48. Masque says:

    If Kim really gave Mercy to someone else, why is Mercy on the card?

  49. Christie Jenner says:

    Why is Kylie’s head turning backwards?
    And Kim is ENORMOUS in the solo picture.

  50. Dana says:

    How come Kaci, Bert, Brandon & Brody Jenner aren’t included in the family pic?

  51. Chrissie Malcolm says:

    Plastic fantastic … do they just melt them all down and re-mould each year?

  52. Learned One says:

    The only thing that runs through my mind when I see these useless, inane cards is: did they spend the other 364 days thinking up a theme?

  53. world humin says:

    She tried to haul that drugged out kitten everywhere and we are believe it died of some.rare.disease? .can Peta flour bomb her again?

  54. Franklymydear1 says:

    If you look at most family’s christmas cards you see some sense of personality. For some reason these seem horribly cold. I understand they’re smiling or whatever but it seems robotic. I’d really like to see then in ugly sweaters with everyone’s heads on top of each other sticking out of a doorway. (they have a big door I think it’d be possible) 

  55. c. white says:

    that’s a Christmas card ??? i thought it was the new add for Red Lobsters Crabfest

  56. Claire says:

    At least they look a happy in this one. Previous years they look like they’re filming a mafia movie
