We are huge fans of Christmas letters here on Dan Casey’s blog. My own 2010 parody letter still brings in some mail now and then — but alas, a bunch of old friends and family have excised the Caseys from their holiday mailing lists.
I wonder why.
I wasn’t prepared, however, for this: perhaps the most smug and obnoxious Christmas letter in the history of the genre.
Usually, people who have wine “caves” in their kitchens, and rub shoulders with Elton John and Barbara Walters at cocktail parties, and buy 14-course dinners in Paris that cost as much as a new car, well, they don’t brag about it in writing and then send it around the world.
You can read the amazing text in this letter by clicking on the link above, and going over to Gawker.
Keep in mind that if Mitt Romeny, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul or Rick Santorum gets elected president this year, the authors will likely get a tax cut, and they’ll have even more moola to spend — and rub in your noses next Christmas.
