Decorating the tree, baking candy cane cookies, and watching The Grinch are a few of my favorite holiday activities. Another tradition I look forward to? The unveiling of the Kardashian family Christmas card. With complex designs and over-the-top photo shoots, the Keeping Up With the Kardashian stars are known for spreading holiday cheer in the most elaborate way possible. Unfortunately there was no Kardashian-Jenner holiday card last year and it's getting a little late to debut one this year (unless they were waiting for Saint West's birth to happen first). But don't worry, another celebrity stepped up and created the greatest Christmas card of all time! On Instagram, Kelly Clarkson shared her family's holiday photo and it's a dream-come-true for any Game of Thrones fan. In the caption, the "Piece By Piece" singer wrote,
Merry Christmas from the Blackstock clan! @gameofthrones #gameofthrones #winteriscoming #riverisnotworried
No snowmen or reindeer here! Clarkson and her family chose to go the pop culture route. Their rendition of the HBO show is absolutely perfect — there's even a castle and everything. The singer's husband, Brandon Blackstock, is all dressed up in a kilt and matches his son Seth. Blackstock's daughter Savannah is wearing an elaborate gown, as is Clarkson. While their faces appear incredibly stoic, baby River must have missed the memo. Kelly Clarkson's daughter is giggling, despite the fact that the show's motto "Winter is coming" is written behind them in ominous letters.
Can this become a new tradition where Clarkson and her family take on a new TV series every year? Considering the Grammy nominee is expecting her second child with Blackstock, they'll have an even bigger family to play dress up next time around. I'd root for an Orange Is The New Black or The Walking Dead themed card in 2016. (OK, not the most family-friendly shows, but I'm just thinking in terms of the biggest TV hits.)
No matter what they do in the future, Clarkson's family wins this year's celebrity Christmas card game. The bar has officially been raised!
