The Obama Family’s Christmas Card Doesn’t Mention Christmas
The Obamas sent out their last Christmas card from the White House, but some people have noticed a major problem with it.
The photo was taken at a state dinner in March that honored Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and features Sasha Obama, Barack Obama, Michelle Obama and Malia Obama.
Though the family wishes everyone a “happy holidays,” the card makes no mention of Christmas.
“As our family reflects on many happy years spent in the White House, we are grateful for the friends we’ve made, the joy we’ve shared, and the gifts of kindness we’ve received,” the card reads. “We wish you and your loved ones a joyous holiday season and a wonderful new year.”
People were quick to criticize the card on social media. (RELATED: Donald Trump Wants You To Stop Saying ‘Happy Holidays’ And Start Saying ‘Merry Christmas’)

Obama uses "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas" & breaks from tradition on final W.H. CHRIST-mas card showing himself instead of WH

@BryanJFischer nope, I wouldn't expect that from someone who is so hostile to Christianity in his policies
