Nothing says “Deck The Halls” better than men’s wear, skin-tight sequins and gothic mood lighting. Not according to the Kardashians 2011 holiday card, anyway. Continuing their grand tradition of yuletide divadom, Kim Kardashian unveiled the card today, tweeting, “This year’s family Christmas card is finally here!” This year’s photo might take the cake when it comes to least jolly Season’s Greetings. Where did they shoot this thing? An haunted Grecian ruin? Check out the increasingly moody leanings of the Kardashian family Christmas cards dating back to a startlingly normal photo from 2008. You have to hand it to them, though: no one is going to be sending out anything nearly this eerie for the holidays. Well, maybe the Munsters. They wish.

Umm…aww? Kourtney Kardashian decided that her young son Mason Disick should have a pet. Sounds perfectly natural, right? But then she had to go “Kardashian” all over everything, and the result: she went out and bought the 21-month old a snake. And this isn’t just a some friendly little garter, either. Apparently Baby’s First Reptile is “big and vicious.” Kourtney made the purchase in the New York City store Fauna yesterday along with little sis Khloe, who was understandably pretty grossed out by the whole ordeal. “Eww! It’s not mine,” she told photographers as they carried the serpent out of the shop. No word yet on what they named the snake (may we suggest “Scott Disick”?), but it now resides comfortably in the Kardashian suite at the Gansevoort Hotel where it passes the hours “snapping at the grass” in it’s tank. File this one under “Things they wouldn’t do if they weren’t followed by a camera crew.” Don’t forget to save the snake skin for Mason’s baby book!

We are seriously torn about the Kardashian’s new Christmas card. On the one hand, we will defend any extended family’s right to be as fabulous as they want to be, no matter what time of the year it is. On the other hand, they look like a community theater cast of Clue that might have actually killed someone. Can the grandmas and co-workers of the world handle a holiday card filled with so many divas?
Gushes Khloe about the picture, “Christmas cards have always been a REALLY big deal in my family. For as long as I can remember, my mom has made it a point to go all out, whether it was a ninja turtles themed card, or bringing a Santa into the mix, each year she always managed to top the year before. I’d have to say though that our card this year might be my favorite. It turned out beautifully — just SO glam! Plus, Mason is in it, which makes it even more special.” Okay, we’ve finally decided how we feel about this: we’re on board! Leave the dumpy sweaters and reindeer antlers for the commoners. This year, the Kardashians are bringing a big Crock-Pot full of fierce to the holiday potluck, and there’s plenty to go around! [Photo: Khloe Kardashian's Blog]
