The Kardashians have released their 2018 Christmas card, which means Christmas has officially begun, albeit with a few absences. First of all, the matriarch Kris Jenner is not in the photo, which is a first for the family, who have been releasing Christmas cards for years now. Only one of the Jenner sisters appears, and there are also no spouses allowed here. The man who rapped "now that your'e gone it hit us/super hard on thanksgiving and Christmas," Kanye West, is also absent from the the photo.  

There's one part of the family that is certainly not absent, though, and that is the kids. There are so many kids here, the combined output of Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie and Kim, that you can barely see their mothers' bodies. Khloe, posting the photo on Instagram, wrote "✞ 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 ✞"
