Does anyone still do Janet and Roy?

We did one once to friends who were getting married they were really very stressed about who these people were who would be attending their wedding with their small children.
Are they still going? I'd do one for someone.

I don't have anyone to send them to but I love reading about them and happy to send one!

I loved the Janet and Roy thread too.
I would be happy to send one too.

What is this?
Poppins2016 · 29/10/2021 02:02
I wondered this too... I've searched and it seems that "it's a random Christmas card sent to someone you know, signed “Janet & Roy”. MNers can send each other’s friends & relations cards to baffle them."

I love a Janet and Roy card!
Good explanation from the Op in this thread

I have an auntie Janet and Uncle Roy. I feel cheated.

Ooh I'll send a Janet and Roy card if anyone wants. I have a lovely selection of cat Christmas cards! Let me know!!

I’m in France so if anyone wants a r-r to recipients who have spent time/ have friends who travel a lot to France I’d be willing to send one.
hellcatspangle · 29/10/2021 07:45
Haha this is a great idea. I definitely have someone in mind...
bellissimiaow · 29/10/2021 07:59
Love this! Can you nominate yourself as a recipient and just not let on to your partner when it arrives?!
BashfulClam · 30/10/2021 22:25
I miss the old round robin I used to get at my old house. I think it was just an address error as we were the first owners of that property. It came from Greece.

I love Christmas round robins. My dad had a very smug cousin who used to send hilarious ones (hilarious to us, anyway!)
Notaroadrunner · 30/10/2021 22:32
I wrote quite a long letter along with a card to friends of ours one Christmas but they never mentioned it so I'm not sure if they got it. I think if I'd received one I'd have shown it to everyone as it was pretty daft I typed it as 'I'd hurt my finger so couldn't write' and signed it some random names. I thoroughly enjoyed being this other person and telling them about the made up family woes while wishing them a happy Christmas.
sceweredbbq · 30/10/2021 22:52
Right, I’m in. The RRs in that link it good. I’d happily send one if someone will send one for me?
SpicedGin · 30/10/2021 23:03
I’d never heard of this but it sounds amusing, I think that I may send a card or two from J&R 😂
Someaddedsugar · 30/10/2021 23:05

IJustNamedYourPenis · 30/10/2021 23:40
I’ll join, please!
Christmas101 · 31/10/2021 08:23
I love Janet and Roy. Please post the letter here whoever is writing??
Mummylin · 31/10/2021 09:16
Seeing Janet & Roy coming round once again reminded me, I have never told my brother and sil the truth, I was very lucky and my writer sent 3 cards the last one stating they would be arriving in their caravan with the 5 dogs, but they could just park outside their house so not to go to any trouble ! And this is from 7 yrs ago , time to fess up or leave it ?
Gracesquirrel · 31/10/2021 10:28
Oh I love this idea! I'd like to join in too I have a nomination to receive one and I'll happily write and send one too if anyone wants one with a South Wales postmark.
GobletofFiyah · 31/10/2021 12:28
@Mummylin that's amazing!
Bananasandevap · 31/10/2021 12:32
@Capferret yes please! 🤣
BlueFlavour · 31/10/2021 12:34
I was thinking about this the other day
