Why the 2018 Kardashian Christmas Card Is Missing Some Key People

After much delay, the annual Kardashian/Jenner Christmas card is finally here. Last year, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians family unveiled their card with a series of adorable snaps that were eventually pieced together to create a massive card. However, for a while this year, it didn’t even seem like we were going to get a card from them at all. It’s been an insane year for the Kardashian/ Jenner clan. Older sisters, Kourtney and Kim had been feuding, Khloe welcomed her first child, True Thompson in the midst of a horrible cheating scandal with her beau, Tristan Thompson.

Additionally, youngest sister Kylie Jenner returned to the spotlight after giving birth to her daughter, Stormi Webster, and Kim Kardashian has been dealing with all of the drama her husband, rapper Kanye West is constantly stirring up. However, it looks like the sisters couldn’t let their annual tradition get swallowed up in the midst of all the changes and the drama. Their 2018 Christmas card is super, but it’s missing some key people.

Spotlight on the Kardashian babies

Though some folks are nowhere to be found all of the babies are present. Khloé, Kourtney, Kylie, and Kim are all posed in the photo draped in white along with their children, True, Mason, Reign, Penelope, Stormi, North, Saint, Chicago and their niece, Dream. Khloe Kardashian posted the adorable photo on her Instagram with the caption, “Merry Christmas!! We all wish you love and harmony✞ So far this is by far my most favorite of any Christmas. I have all I could ever want FAMILY. ”

Who is missing from the Christmas card?

Though the Christmas card is super precious there were some glaring absences from the photo. The Kardashians haven’t traditionally included the men in their lives on the card, but their mother, Kris Jenner, sister, Kendall Jenner, and brother Rob Kardashian were nowhere to be found.

While Rob has been staying out of the spotlight in recent years, matriarch Kris and model-sister Kendall are usually always present. Unfortunately, their schedules just didn’t sync up for the shoot. Kim Kardashian posted on Instagram, “CHRISTMAS 2018. This year we waited until the last minute to do a card. Schedules we’re changing, my husband was in and out of town. But the day of this card last minute realized we were all together, so we had all of our kids come meet us. Kendall and my mom rushed to a meeting after this shoot so this is what we have! As many of us as possible! From our family to yours Merry Christmas.”

It’s super difficult to get nine babies to smile and look at the camera, so we think the Kardashian/Jenner clan did a fantastic job with the time they had the people who showed up to keep the Christmas card tradition alive. We’re just glad they made it happen.
