Does anyone still do Janet and Roy?
90

WildFlowerBees · 28/10/2021 19:38

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.

Right, I’m in. The RRs in that link it good. I’d happily send one if someone will send one for me?

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 Grin 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.

I love Christmas round robins. My dad had a very smug cousin who used to send hilarious ones (hilarious to us, anyway!)

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.

Love this! Can you nominate yourself as a recipient and just not let on to your partner when it arrives?!

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.

@BunnytheFriendlyDragon

What is this?

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."
