Happy Holidays

It's a long story, a story of my family's failed attempt at Roman Catholicism and my oldest friend's constant attempts at riduculing it.
This year I received this Christmas card from said friend.
The penguins represent members of the Orange Order, a Protestant Unionist organisation for gentlemen who fear and despise the Catholic hordes (like me).You can see the real thing in the top picture.
This is one of those moments when one's ethnicity has absolutely no bearing upon one's everyday life. It's an amusing, long running gag between me and aforementioned old friend.
Just thought you all might like to see the card.
