Manx Scenery Christmas Cards Wanted

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am off island, and would like to purchase some IOM xmas cards with nice snowy type scenes, maybe the Laxey Wheel? I have done a quick google, but nothing there I fancy. Would also like the christmas greeting in manx... can anyone point me in the right direction?

"Christmas greeting in Manx"

Technically, that is a Manx greeting in English ....

 

I was surprised that there was not a better choice of Manx cards on the net, though.

And it's exactly what a very Manx member of this forum said to me when I met him in March this year!

There are very poor Christmas cards and New Year calendars in shops on the Island, never mind what's on the internet. Every year I am disappointed by the boring and rubbish photographs that are featured. There's usually only one or two decent ones. Every year I feel somewhat embarrassed and always add a post-it note saying that the island is actually a lot nicer and more interesting than these lame photographs might suggest.

 

ETA: the best calendars are usually the Manx Wildlife Trust ones. I am not sure if they do Christmas cards? Try their website: http://www.manxwt.org.uk//

I send cards / calendars to people all over the world.

 

Does sticking out your tongue help you to not go over the lines when you're colouring in?
