One of the best parts of the Christmas season is getting cards from friends, family and business contacts - particularly when they are something different than the norm of store bought cards.
Now, I'm a bit biased, but of the ones I've received this year so far, the Nova Scotia Film Development Corporation's is hands-down the best. My fiance, Linda, is at the top left, with the hat on and her hand on Santa's shoulder.
Her hand on Santa's shoulder??
Wait a minute! Santa looks like he's enjoying himself a little too much!!!
Still, best card of 2005. Kudos to the NSFDC staff for having a sense of humour, and doing something a bit different. The only thing that would have made it even better would have been putting Premier John Hamm's face in for Santa's!
Also, kudos to the NSFDC for last night's Christmas bash at the Halifax Club. Great tree, a federal cabinet minister (Geoff Regan, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, to whom I was introduced as the "UFO guy," and with whom I had a brief chat about UFOs, or, as Steven Greer would say, "a briefing"), the Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia, a Mountie in dress uniform, and free liquor... as Eric Cartman would say, "sweet!"
