    christmas card type

    Dear all,

    If somebody says abput someone that he is not the "Christmas card type", what does that mean.

    Actually that was mentioned in a teaser of an episode... very short shots.

    Here is the sentence "He is not the Christmas card type"

    Thanks a lot.

    That is not enough context for us to be certain of the meaning. It probably means that he is not a person who sends Christmas cards and/or displays all the cards he has received.

    Can you kindly tell me what more I can provide. Those were quick shots. But they were talking (not sure, though, if it's related the same shot" about a certain man and he works as a hunter. I don't know if that was about him.
    I tried to ask, may be it's an idiom or something.

    Thanks a lot.

    It's not a true idiom, but if he's a hunter, he may not be the kind of person you can rely on to think of things like Christmas cards or to remember your birthday- he may have other qualities, but not those social niceties.
