Greeting cards can be a quick, simple, time-saving way to congratulate a person without all the mess and fuss of making them yourself. However, people like me are big supporters of hand-making our cards — they’re personal, unique, and the effort is worth it. Though, what can you do if you want to make a personalized card, but are too tired after working in the popcorn mines all day and night?

The answer is surprisingly simple: you could always buy a greeting card and edit it to fit whatever occasion it is you bought it for (no refunds). This way you can save a bunch of time, as well as make your loved ones happy by adding a hilarious personal touch. But once you open these floodgates, it’s hard to stop. Soon enough, you might buy a random card for Easter, add some creative scribbles with a pen and turn it into a greeting card for Christmas. And then — the sky’s the limit.

For your amusement and to give you some fun ideas because the holidays are fast approaching (just like every year), Bored Panda compiled the funniest examples of edited greeting cards. Upvote your faves and make sure to scroll down to the bottom-most card so it doesn’t feel left out. And share this post with your friends and family if you think you want to get a hilarious edited card this year.

Let’s say that you’re on your way to your uncle’s 125th birthday or to your best buddy’s 3rd wedding (3rd time’s the charm, right?), but you were rushing and accidentally picked out a card congratulating someone on their successful spinal surgery. Well, it’s not like you can return the card and pick out a new one, right? Imagine how embarrassing that would be. Not to mention you’d have to drive all the way back to the store. Ugh. It’s far easier to grab a pen and make some creative changes to the card using the power of your imagination.

The history of greeting cards is surprisingly ancient. The Greeting Card Association explains how the origins of the greeting card lie way back in ancient China, where people exchanged “messages of goodwill” to celebrate the New Year, and in ancient Egypt, where papyrus scrolls were used to send greetings.

The earliest origins of the greeting card in the West, as we know them, lie in the 1400s, when Europeans sold and exchanged handmade cards. And among them were Valentine’s Day cards!

It took another 400 years for Valentine’s Day cards to become popular and affordable. And it was in 1843 that Sir Henry Cole hired artist John Calcott Horsley to design a holiday card for his friends: the card was the first known instance of a Christmas card.
