There's an interesting survey on about holiday cards. Should they show the kids only, show parents and kids, or be banned. Personally, I prefer the latter, given the state of "families" these days.

Just what is the proper etiquette for the modern family? Do you schedule a sitting and just get it all over with at once? Or do you book the whole week?

What combination of parties is appropriate? Biological parents? Custodial parents? Step-parents?

Are half-siblings included?

Do the kids need to wear a different outfit for each portrait? Who pays for the clothes? Can you recycle the shoes?

How many copies do the relatives get? How many are they expected to display? Do they recycle them according to who comes to dinner?

It's too damn complicated for me. Stick a Santa hat on the dog and be done with it.
