Receiving a Christmas card is always an honor and a special treat. It shows that someone thinks enough of you to spread good cheer and love your way. And if that person goes all out and includes a photo or 10, all the better. Yes, I want to see your kids' pictures because your kids are cute and -- oh my, look how much they've grown in one year! If you take the time to send me a card, I am definitely going to hang it up somewhere

But the truth is, some Christmas cards are just better than others. A photo of your baby is great. But a photo of your baby submerged in a big soupless soup bowl? That one is going in a scrapbook, where it will stay for eternity. 

Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi know the value of sending cards with big personality and did a bang-up job of it when they revealed their Kanye West/Kim Kardashian "Bound 2" i-nspired Xmas card last week. The card is perfect because it pays tribute to something that happened this year AND both women look like they couldn't be having a better time re-creating the music video. 

But celebs aren't they only ones with great ideas (or, if we're talking about the Kardashian Xmas card, questionable ones). A lot of folks on Reddit are sharing some pretty hilarious cards that deserve attention, too. 

Here's a video of Ellen revealing her hilarious Christmas card, followed by a slideshow of some of the best cards we've seen.
