My Sister-In-Law's Lonely Christmas Cards

What happens at Christmas when parents treat their unmarried child like a second-class citizen.

All of my wife's four siblings are married except one. Bridget, the unmarried one, got cut out of her mom and dad's Christmas card picture five years ago. Her parents found it awkward to have just one remaining child in her mid-20s still in the picture, so they kicked her out. Bewildered, lonely, and unsure what to do with herself in this big world, she began sending out her own Christmas cards.

Our only hope is that she never gets married so this can continue forever.
