And the best thing about this is that it wasn’t even Christmas time.
The little girl is the only who looks like she knows that this is a bad idea.
i cant wait to see what we get for our birthdays from grandma.
i don’t think I would get a long with the person who made this decision… as they are insane.
how many llamas had to die for that shot?
The only thing that could make this picture more perfect is if there was a little dog at the bottom… in a sweater!
Yes, the only way to improve on matching sweaters is to color-code them by gender.
See you my website:)
At least one of those guys is thinking, “What the *#!&!!!”
Emasculation at its finest.
What! No sweaters in the mantel picture?
If you sit and stare long enough you will see Martha Stewart!
Oh my goodness! Some of the comments are funnier than this sweater disaster!
I think the sweater picture was cool kool oh well you get my drift
awful awful awful……That just about sums up the word for those sweaters!!!!
“What Not To Wear” = family edition. That is some love for whoever they were posing for, whew.
This must be someones idea of human lo jack. Hard to get lost wearing this.
This is a Glamour “Don’t.”
I like how they make it easy to for us to distinguish the boys from girls with colors! how clever!
uhhh…where can i regift this thing?
Sometimes, ya just have to say “no.” Or walk away.
This is Disturbia.
@dandaman: You really think anyone will be fighting FOR these sweaters? I’m thinking it will be much more: “That’s your sweater! Nuh uh, it’s YOURS!”
True story: One Christmas early in our marriage my mother-in-law got my wife and her sister ugly-a** matching sweaters, and made them wear them.
Those sweaters were NEVER seen again!
The only way this is remotely ok is if they’re Finnish and “celebrating” their heritage. And even then, it’s still not ok. Cuz really, being proud of where your family comes from should never make you want to poke each other’s eyes out.
Put this picture in a time capsule for the aliens to find 200 years from now…they’ll admire the uniforms!
Sweaters or Christmas tree skirts?
Many happy returns!
Some families have crests, some have kilts, this one obviously has all that but in sweater form!
I see huge fights post laundry sorting. ” hey, that’s my sweater! No, that’s my sweater!”
No one was willing to fight Grandma on this? I would have gone down swinging, and would never have been invited to another family reunion.
Is this their reunion tour?
I am not sure what is worse, the sweaters or that picture hanging over the mantel.
This is the scariest thing I have ever seen. Sweaters of mass destruction.
Don’t be so cruel folks. That’s value shopping, which is important in these tough times. The sweaters double as area rugs.
Where will they sing? I want to buy tickets to see them sing “I feel Good”;
Grandmas are cruel. I can see that proud granny saying, “Okay kids, I want you all to open the gifts at the same time on the count to three!” And then directing (bossing) everyone around, “You stand here, Bob. You stand here, Bill. Alright, don’t move! Be still!” as the neighbor Al plays photographer for her. “Al, make sure you get a shot with me in the middle! I can’t wait to put this in the Christmas letter for all my Red Hat Society friends to see!”
Granny is deluded that she has the happiest family on earth and can’t wait to brag. In truth, they are all unhappy, think she’s batty, and she’ll never see the truth because she can’t handle it.
Those sweaters are expensive BTW. She’d done better to spend $40 plus per person on a Wii to keep at her house. The kids might like visiting more. I know those young men would prefer that.
This is the kind of insightful comment I think about leaving, then second guess myself thinking “Damn. I am jaded”. Thank you for your honesty!
All that’s missing is the pan pipes.
It looks as though they are all draped with an AFGHAN blanket!
Nothing says love like this type of pain.
Sister Act 4 is being shot in Mexico.
“NOTE TO SELF: take the yarn away from Grandma..”
is it just me or does it look like the little boy on the right has his eyes like half closed.
Meant to add, I am guilty of owning one of those horrible hand knit scratchy woolen monstrosities in the form of a cardigan. It is hidden in the dark recesses of my closet.
I am afraid to ditch it in case it needs to make an “appearance”.
Why oh why in the holy name of Versace would anyone find this attractive and festively fun to wear? Ever?
Okay, who knitted the sweaters….what is Grandma? Mom? ‘fess up!!
They look like a mariachi band.
That woman can knit!
