Game of Thrones is a fantasy series about power struggles, dragons, and violent, sometimes dragon-related murder. Christmas is a holiday about spending time with loved ones and the spirit of giving. The only real overlaps between the two, prior to today, were a) a quickly approaching winter, and b) stabbings. (The Red Wedding has nothing on a Wal-Mart at 4 a.m. on Black Friday.) But now we can go ahead and add another item to that list, as former American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson posted this Game of Thrones-themed Christmas card on Instagram.

Period-appropriate wardrobe? Check. Old British-looking estate? Check. Gloomy sky, the trademark dragon shadow, and a “Winter Is Coming” graphic? Check, check, and check. The only thing missing, really, is some depiction of horrific violence. Or gratuitous nudity. Although I suppose both of those would appear somewhat out of place in a family Christmas card that features a smiling baby. Maybe they could have let the baby hold a knife? Or Photoshopped one in, if they’re against babies holding sharp objects? I don’t know, I’m just spitballing here.

Anyway, the takeaway from all of this is twofold. One, Kelly Clarkson and her family seem cool. And two, step up your Christmas card game, people.
