Every year, like clockwork, the Kardashian family releases a super glam Christmas card that shows off their particular brand of opulence -- a lavish setting, designer garb, stoic poses. But this year they opted out of all that grandeur and chose to show off only the Kardashian kids, instead.

Keeping things super simple, 2015's Khristmas Kard features only the youngest generation of Kardashians: North West, Penelope, Mason and Reign Disick are all dressed in black and seated against a white background. Saint West remains absent from the shoot (and from public appearances), but he's been out of the womb for just a few weeks at this point, so we'll let it slide.

According to a source at E! News, busy schedules resulted in the family's decision to focus solely on the kids: "This year, especially the last couple months, was so hectic that it was hard to arrange a full family shoot. Showing the kids alone seemed like the perfect thing to do."

2015 marks the Kardashians' return to their much beloved Christmas card, after they reportedly "ran out of time" to release one last year. E! News notes that Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner were finalizing their divorce at the time, too, so it was bad timing all around.

How do you feel about this year's installment of the Kardashians'' longstanding Christmas tradition? Like it? Love it? Gotta have it? Is this unseasonably warm weather making you think of ice cream, too? Let us know in the comments below!
