The Kardashian Christmas card, a time-honored tradition brought forth by the first family of social media family, has been slowly trickling out piece by piece through the month of December, with family members posting a shot per day. December 25th, AKA Christmas Day, will be the final picture in the sequence, and while we’ve been busy trying to figure out how the card works and if it will announce any pregnancies, the latest picture posted by the family reveals a very important — and possibly telling — absence.
In the photo Kim Kardashian posted on December 24, most of the family is present and accounted for, including Kim, Kendall, and even grandma MJ. Khloé, who recently announced her pregnancy, is in the photo holding baby Dream. Rob Kardashian is missing, though he’s been press-shy in the past, and we know that Kanye will appear in the card from previous photos. Reign Disick is also MIA in this shot, though we’ve seen him a few times already. But most importantly, where is Kylie Jenner?
The youngest Kardashian sister hasn’t appeared in any piece of the card yet, leading fans to believe that the last image will confirm her rumored pregnancy.
It would be pretty strange if Kylie didn’t show up in the card, considering she’s an important part of the family’s reign over pop culture as we know it. That being said, we can’t say Kylie’s pregnant without a confirmation from her or the family, so this is all just speculation for now. We’ll just have to wait until tomorrow to see — the suspense is almost worse than wondering what Santa will bring in the morning.
A Definitive Ranking of Kardashian Christmas Cards, From Least Kardashian to Most Kardashian
Mispelling of Khloe’s name aside, this card is most definitely the least Kardashian thanks to one notable exception: as if Kris Jenner would ever miss a photo opp nowadays.
While this was years before Kim was running around with Karl Lagerfeld and Riccardo Tisci, you can still see the pain in her eyes over having to wear ill-fitting, matching motorcycle jackets with the male-heavy Jenner clan.
A Kardashian never misses the chance for a full-scale, glam-squad heavy photoshoot. The fact that they skipped a prime opportunity for the 2009 holiday card in favor of an outtake from Khloe’s wedding is very off-brand.
As everyone who has caught a glimpse of Keeping Up With the Kardashians or paged through an Us Weekly in the past decade knows, this family is not without some serious drama. The party-themed, all smiles 2012 card is just a little too happy.
Another all-white card, but at least this one comes with some angst (Hi, Khloe) and tense smiles that nod to some underlying drama. Bonus points for a tiny baby Kendall Jenner and an appearance from Santa.
Here we have some high glamour Kardashians, as we’ve come to know and love—at least, until the Yeezy athleisure movement came in full-force. The fact that Kim’s shade of red is just slightly off from the rest of the clan is a great easter egg.
The 2013 David LaChapelle-lensed card was a tipping point for the family, as they went from “delightfully zany” to just “full-on insane.” There are just so many things to look at here—which, truly, could be said about the family in general.
A distinct departure from the bonkers previous card, once Kim and Kourtney started building their own brood, they let the kid’s take center stage in the family’s holiday card. A cute thought, but if rumors are too be true, the concept might be a little too crowded come next year.
You want drama? Glamour? Welcome to the 2010 Kardashian family card. This was the first year to let each sister’s individual style stand out, a nod at many fashion empires to come.
2011, however, was the card to end all cards. Case in point? It was in 3-freaking-D. Your Christmas card could never. But hey, what are Kardashians if not ahead of their time?
