Greeting Cards as Historical Record

Happy Gay Wedding

I was buying a birthday card for a friend today, when I saw a new category: Gay Wedding.

One card had two guys at the altar, with the Justice of the Peace saying, “You may now exchange recipes.” Another had two guys in tuxes holding hands, carrying huge happy face lollipops.

It would be interesting to see how greeting cards have changed over the years to reflect society. I’m sure somebody way smarter than me, with more time on their hands, is already putting together a doctorate on exactly this topic.

It’s great to see that gay wedding cards are hitting the mainstream.

Ed’s Note: In fact, it’s FABULOUS!

My only complaint? Most gay people are way funnier than these cards.
