Got a Christmas card from someone we don't know. (1 Viewer)

Got a Christmas (or should I say X-mas to get under some people's skin? ) card in the mail today.  Neither my wife nor I recognize the name or the people pictured in the family photo on the card.  Nice looking family...wife is hot...2 young kids, boy and a girl.  My name and address is on the envelope, so it doesn't seem like an accident.  I am shuked.

As a child my family got a card from Belgium every Christmas. We knew they were somehow related to us but none of us understood Belgiumise so it always remained a mystery to us.

You probably slipped into a parallel universe where you know each other. Anything else slightly off in your day to day? Quick, who won the Superbowl last year?

Google their name. Probably a child of a cousin.
Have tried...not much comes up.  Found an old wedding registry link from 2013.  I have also seen a few of those records search sites reporting their ages and names of relatives...nothing rings a bell.  Never got anything from them before.  They live locally (NE Ohio) and they seem to have family connections in New Castle, PA.  But I have no association with New Castle or any of the relative names that have turned up.   It appears as though the guy owns a plumbing business.  I thought maybe this was a business PR move.  I have gotten a card from a contractor before with whom I had done business, but I have never heard of his company name, and I have never done any business with his company.   There are no business references on the card.   :shrug:

Xmas is fine

The "X" comes from the Greek letter Chi, which is the first letter of the Greek word Χριστός, which in English is "Christ"

He's quite right, and I was goning to get on the other poster for the same reason.
I know he's right. It's just that even if I'm quite right, he calls me intellectually pretentious. 

He even left a Good Will Hunting clip for me once.  

It's all in good fun.

I grew up in New Castle, PA still have much family there, actually heading there soon.  Throw the name at me.

Probably another forum somewhere with a dude talking about sending Christmas cards out to random people as some high level schtick.
My first thought. And it's brilliant. 

It might be something I do with all the Christmas cards sent to us. In July.

This happened to us. Beautiful family card - husband, wife and 2 kids. Looked them up - they live near us (about 5 miles maybe). 

Took us a couple weeks but she finally figured it out. She went to a local chamber of commerce event like 2 years ago when our business first opened. This chick was there. Business cards were exchanged. My wife never really spoke to her. 

So weird. She’s a physical therapist with her own clinic.
