The 10 best holiday e-cards so far. From 6 countries.
I already complained about the Lame Law Firm Holiday Cards, and vowed not to create another competition for the best law firm holiday/Christmas cards; I’ll leave that to the Above The Lawguys.I promised to show a nice selection, including some favorites. Here are ten good choices (12 actually), from the US, UK, Canada, Luxembourg, Eastern Europe, and Australia. They show that you can be creative and effective without spending a fortune:
Holy crap. A little bit country? A little bit rock and roll? I always love Procter Heyman’s annual e-cards. Are those their lawyers dressed up like KISS and country singers? I wanna party with these guys — Kurt, call me.

All in all, not a bad selection.
