  3. xon says:

    they shoulda knitted mini sweaters for the figurines on the mantelpiece…next year maybe?

  4. El Kev says:

    Tyler, who’s idea was this?

  5. El Kev says:

    The worst part is that someone thought this was a good idea. Oh, and to the person who wondered what happened to the non-conforming member of the family, Jamie, that person was made into the sweaters.

  6. JK says:

    Out of all the sweater designs in the world…

    Not saying families should all dress in matching wear!

  7. hfdsk says:

    Even the little one looks about 30, those sweaters are AGING, but its cute they all like each other enough to do that..

  8. the sweaters resemble Central-South American parkas!! The Swiss Family Gonzales?!

  9. Christina says:

    That is so wrong.

  10. Your Mom says:

    sweater world must of had a sale….all sweaters from 1979…HALF PRICE!!!

    My aunt Janie used to run a yarn shop that was built into what used to be a bar. No, seriously. She used to knit me a sweater every.year. I owned a pullover sweater that was knitted from three-toned orange yarn that had a hood and a front pocket. So it was a hoodie – only knitted. My sister got one just like it, in varying shades of yellow. I wish I had that picture still.

    Anyone remember the “Leave It To Beaver” episode when Beaver wore the Eskimo sweater that he later found out was a “girl’s” one that “Judy” also had?? I think they found 11 replicas!

    That’s not awkward. hee hee

  14. RockitQueen says:

    omawarisan, they all had to open the gifts at the same time. The kid 2nd from left has Ken doll arms.

  15. Mike says:

    What’s sticking out of the pant leg of the guy on the left?

  16. Shannon says:

    Looks like they made some sweaters out of fancy curtains.

  17. Carmen says:

    Granny’s calendar:
    January 1… Start knitting Christmas sweaters for this year’s family portrait.

  18. Lucid says:

    jamie, the one who refused to conform is either:
    a) taking the picture
    b) dead, at the hand of whoever bought the sweaters, and buried in a snowbank grave.


    I bet a granny knitted them with love, and when the bad seed refused the knitting needle was naturally the weapon of choice.

    That’s a Norwegian pattern on those sweaters. You don’t piss them off, they have that Viking blood.

  19. George Jennings says:

    “Remember when we all wore those goofy sweaters”………

  20. omawarisan says:

    After say the 3rd or 4th one opened their gift, was anyone really surprised?

  21. abanana68 says:

    Nothing says ‘Family’ like gender-specific sweaters…

  22. Caffeine says:

    Why did they color code the family? Can’t they tell whether they’re male or female without the right colors?

  23. James says:

    Looks like an Inca or Mayan cult. lol.

  24. aedge says:

    Who thought this would be a good idea?

    Grandma, that’s who.

    This pic is so legit, I think I’ll use it on MY Christmas cards this year!

    jamie, the one who refused to conform is either:
    a) taking the picture
    b) dead, at the hand of whoever bought the sweaters, and buried in a snowbank grave.

  26. Angie Ricketts says:

    Stare at the sweaters and allow your eyes to unfocus…An eagle will emerge…Keep staring…

  27. Tim says:

    Oh my gosh. I really have to know what happened here. Are you serious??!

  28. RCB says:

    The baby girl looks like she knows she’s in for it.

  29. ColorfulKate says:

    And the sweaters are so flattering!

  30. jamie says:

    what happened to the family member who refused to conform?

  31. Oingo Boingo goes Bong says:

    I bet this was Granny’s idea: “Oh, hay. A sweater sale at Land’s End! Fab! We’ll look so swell for our Christmas photo!”

  32. Jessica says:

    This is absolutely hilarious…they must think they’re hot stuff!

  33. Evilbeagle says:

    A family that knits together…

  34. kathryn says:

    You think someone would have learned after hearing,”Oh you shouldn’t have” so many times! No really, YOU….SHOULDN’T………HAVE

  36. bingo says:

    grandma spent 364 busy days at her loom.

  37. Amy says:

    I feel bad for the little ones. They’ll have that sweater forever in hand-me-down hell.

  38. Kathy says:

    This is perhaps the most visually painful one yet. Where’s my Advil?

  39. mish mish says:

    Hahaha! I thought those all-white-turtleneck family photos were tasteless – until this.

  40. Hauer says:

    “Guess what I got you for Xmas?”

  41. Rain Likely says:

    Ow! My eyes! My eyes!

  42. illeatabugonadare says:

    I wonder what the cameraman’s wearing.

  43. Blindguy says:

    Gaah!!!! MY EYES!!!!!!

  44. jenneliz says:

    oh man, that sucks… WAIT! this reminds me of one of our pictures… i might have something to submit….

  45. Yesdog says:

    I’m figuring there’s some kind of star-belly caste system in place.

  46. Dave says:

    Laundry day for this family must be hell. Something tells me they all have labels sewn in.

  47. Kristen says:

    Gotta love the color coding.

  48. grandobservations says:
