'Merry Christmas from me and this chicken!' Single woman wins the hearts of thousands with her self-deprecating holiday cards that spoof couples' more traditional efforts Usually families are always keen for their unmarried children, sisters or brothers to find that special someone and settle down - but this young lady's family may not feel the same. A woman named Bridget has become an internet sensation after someone claiming to be her brother-in-law started sharing the series of hilarious Christmas cards that the 'very single' young woman has been sending out to her family every year - including ones featuring her posing as a passed-out drunk, snuggling up with a mannequin and even posing alongside a chicken in a tiny Santa hat. The brother-in-law, who shared the images via a community post on Buzzfeed as wx.campbell, claimed that the cards started after Bridget, the last unmarried of five children, featured in a final Christmas card with her parents.

However, Bridget's only hobby appeared to be drinking. From there, a joke was born. Then, the first of the solo Christmas cards arrived in 2010. 'Happy holidays!' it read, above a photo of the young woman sitting by a fire, a martini in one hand and a bottle of wine - from which she is taking a swig - in the other, and the words 'Love Bridget. Just Bridget' across the bottom. 'We all thought we’d never hear from Bridget at Christmas again,' wrote Bridget's brother-in-law along with the first card. 'Then we got this.' There would be even more booze worked into Bridget's 2011 effort, where her mundane holiday greetings were accompanied by six photos of her sitting at a table surrounded with stuffed animals for an alcohol-laced tea party. http://i.***************/i/pix/2015/12/13/20/2F576E4100000578-0-image-a-31_1450039741092.jpg +6 Enjoying company: 2011 saw Bridget enjoying a alcohol-fueled tea party along with a table full of stuffed animals and bottles of liquor http://i.***************/i/pix/2015/12/13/20/2F576E4500000578-0-image-a-32_1450040118935.jpg +6 Amusing herself: The 2012 card saw Bridget get creative with a table full of herself, and a message signed by 'Bridget, Bridget, Bridget, Bridget and Bridget' Bridget also had company at the following year's Christmas card gathering - although they all happened to just be herself wearing different outfits and hats sitting at a long red table - with one of the Bridgets laying face down on her plate among a dozen bottles of alcohol. 'May 2013 bring you more of me!' the greeting declared before being signed by 'Bridget, Bridget, Bridget, Bridget and Bridget'. But then, things took a tongue-in-cheek turn for the worst in 2013, as Bridget took to the woods in her pajamas with hard liquor for a series of photos wallowing in loneliness and wishing her loved ones a 'Merry F***ing Christmas. From me to your f***ing perfect family'. Things got even stranger the following year as Bridget includes 'her new man' - a mannequin - in the photo, showing them cuddling up in a kayak floating in an outdoor pool strewn with beer cans. http://i.***************/i/pix/2015/12/13/20/2F576E3500000578-0-image-a-33_1450040195741.jpg +6 Descent into despair: Things became dire for young Bridget in 2013, as she took to the woods in pajamas and drank away her loneliness, wishing others a 'Merry F***ing Christmas. From me to your f***ing perfect family' http://i.***************/i/pix/2015/12/13/21/2F576E3900000578-0-image-a-34_1450041142020.jpg +6 A tad concerning: In 2014, Bridget introduced loved ones to 'her new man' 'Sailing into 2015 with love and loneliness,' read the greeting on the card. Now, the latest of featuring her posed with a live chicken in a festive hat, again, among empty wine bottles, with the inscription: 'Merry Christmas... from me and this chicken'. Bridget's brother-in-law considered the company to be a step up. 'Turned out the mannequin was an a**hole,' he said. 'The chicken, on the other hand, is cordial and quite festive.' The Buzzfeed community member first shared some of Bridget's rib-tickling cards online last year on the site, and said: 'Our only hope is that she never gets married so this can continue forever'. The cards were also posted on Imgur by a user called macbubs, where they were each viewed over two million times.
