Next Year's Christmas Card

Our founder would always buy his Christmas cards during the clearance sales immediately after the previous Christmas, thereby getting the best quality cards at deeply discounted prices.  So for him to keep his eyes out for next year's image for DSBE's Christmas cards before the Epiphany arrived just fit.  This is what he found.
