And even more Holiday Cards (the German batch)

Today´s batch of Holiday Cards was made with text stamps in German (from Klartext). The one above says "Christmas 2.0 - I thought we wouldn´t make gifts."
And did you ever wonder what jokes the Germans laugh about? Then you should watch Loriot´s Christmas video from 1978 here. You´ll hardly find a German person who doesn´t know it, and what the grandfather says at about 2:34, "Früher war mehr Lametta" (which means something like "There used to me more tinsel formerly"), has become a fixed phrase everyone knows here ... For my two sample cards below, I´ve combined it with tissue tape and vintage photos.
