As if 2016 hadn’t been tragic enough already, the icing on the cake was the absence of the annual Kardashian Christmas card. With nary a glimpse of the fabulous trinkets, the pricey outfits, and the enormous mansions filled to the brim with expensive stuff, 2016 is officially almost too awful to bear.
Yes, now that the new year is just around the corner, it’s time for even the most die-hard Kardashian fans to give up hoping that the famous family will somehow surprise us with the highly-anticipated, yearly look into their glamorously materialistic lives.
There wasn’t a Kardashian Christmas card this year — but why?! https://t.co/xm8MSPmeEb

Luckily for us, however, we still have the Kardashian Christmas cards of years gone by to sustain us until happier times can again be resumed. In fact, according to some estimates, (and assuming Kris Jenner begins planning early for the 2017 Kardashian Christmas card), an early December release date next year may be extremely likely. Indeed, in that hopeful scenario, we’ll only need to survive 11 months until we get our next Kardashian Christmas card fix.
Of course, for some people, it’s probably not going to be easy to wait that long, but rest assured, it’s totally do-able. With the generous stock of holiday cards the Kardashians have graciously shared with us over the years, the next 11 months should just fly right by.
For your viewing pleasure, we’ve put together a compilation of Christmas cards starring America’s famous royal family, the Kardashians.

Skipping ahead into the next decade, we learn that the Kardashians also possessed an excellent sense of humor. That sunglass-adorned Santa is just hilarious.

In a late ’90s Christmas card, the Kardashians showed off their dangerous side. With a tough-looking motorcycle that someone in that picture might even know how to ride, the Kardashian’s edgy fashion sense in this Christmas card is just precious.

The last Kardashian Christmas card that included the eldest Jenner children was, artistically speaking, flawlessly executed.
