  2. RK says:

    And dad frakin looks like Ed Geine….

  3. princess vespa says:

    GOOD NIGHT!!!! This is very creep!!!

  4. noturavg says:

    pretty sure that guy on the right is a zombie

  5. laie says:

    Ghosts of Christmas past

  6. Lauren says:

    Is it just me or are the guys in this picture creepy pale?

  7. dawnro says:

    Looks like a test-pattern

  8. Kathleen says:

    Watch out, little boy! There is clearly a snazzily-attired ghost behind you to your left. Defend yourself with your tiny hammer!

  9. susan says:

    I bet the picture was all Ma’s idea

  10. Anonymous says:

    Yes, Yes, Yes. Now into something more comfortable. Pajamas – check! Night cap – check! Dress shoes – check! Bow tie – check!

  11. Mike says:

    Wally and the Beaver decided the only way to summon Grandad’s ghost was to wear his old pajamas.

  12. Melody says:

    OMG – they give the convicts special holiday uniforms? Prison is so progressive.

  13. Mrs. B says:

    I’m getting a “Weekend At Bernie’s” vibe from grandpa…has anyone checked his pulse recently?

  14. liz says:

    Am I the only one who thinks the guy on the right looks photoshopped?

    Maybe I’m crazy, but he doesn’t quite seem to fit….I dunno, maybe its just me.

  15. Lindsay says:

    To the person that made the comment about the Great Depression:I’m pretty sure this picture was taken long after the Depression. This looks to be somewhere in the 1950′s-1960′s..that boy has a totally 50′s haircut.

  16. Joyful Abode says:

    This picture is extremely uncomfortable.

    I kind of want an 8×10 of it to frame.

  17. Steve says:

    The cigarettes I get… but the tiny hammer? WT*? This photo is awesome!

  18. superstar says:

    this picture makes me uneasy

  19. lagrange says:

    Gee, Wal, it sure is neat that mom let you hold that cigarette in your hand for the picture. I bet Eddie Haskell’s parents don’t let him do this kind of junk

  20. magillicuddy says:

    this site just gets better and better… I can’t believe someone SAVED this one…

  21. jerry says:

    ‘Twas midnight before lockdown and the cons were posing in their new red striped uniforms to fool ‘Ol St. Nick into think they had been good prisoners all year!

  22. Akasha says:

    This reminds me of the movie ‘A Christmas Story’.

  23. Suki says:

    I do see the hammer, I bet that kid wanted a pack of cigarettes like his older brother and I bet he feels like an outcast because his pj’s don’t even match. :(

  24. d2thfary says:

    and please tell me–what is the framed print behind them of??

  25. Elle says:

    I am agreeing with the others comments, the guy in the hat smoking totally makes the pic. I burst out laughing when I saw this winner.

  26. lagrange says:

    is the guy on the right missing from the anniversary cut out???

  27. Anton says:

    Well, it is at face value a funny photo. But afer watching many WWII documentaries, i can never see men in stripped pajamas without thinking of concentration camps, so that ruins the humour aspect for me.

  28. Alekx says:

    Creepy. They look like ghosts.

  29. madpariah says:

    Not pajamas, prison uniforms.

  30. jeebus says:

    the little hammer is from a child’s tool set, my brother had one when he was younger.

  31. Jules says:

    What in the heck do you do with the worlds smalles hammer?

  32. laurie says:

    Wee Willie Winkie’s family likes to keep their business professional.

  33. Angel says:

    The dude on the left does not look old enough to be smoking… Grandpa looks like a ghost! And the young dude is wearing a bow tie??


    very creepy….but creepy good *_*

  35. Trish says:

    The kid on the left got cigarettes. Smoke ‘em up Johnny

  36. Tim says:


  37. eeyore19 says:

    The guy on the left is having a little night cap before bed.

  38. Wendy says:

    The dude smoking just makes this picture

  39. jill says:

    why would you take the time to sew pajamas for 3 generations? why? why? and then leave your shoes on for the picture?

  40. SWMBO says:

    Um, hardsoled shoes and PJs? Christmas or not – this is awkward. Although the younger striped guy in the cap seems to get the joke – love the fact HE IS SMOKING!!!

  41. nite owl says:

    Let’s hope those PJ’s are flame-retardant!

  42. dan says:

    See it? They are all smoking

  43. charmy says:

    Candy Canes and Candy Corn do not go together…

  44. emm says:

    i think its little ebenezer with the ghost of christmas future and the ghost of christmas past. the hammer is in case one of them tries to get cheeky…

  45. Deann says:

    If that red lamp wasn’t behind Papa, he would meld right into the paneling…or maybe he vaporized right through it?

  46. Lamech says:

    That’s the longest shag carpet I’ve ever seen. If he drops that hammer, it’s gone for good.

  47. PopCollector says:

    Buyin’ grandma that sewing machine last Christmas is really payin’ off this year.

  48. PJay says:

    I can’t believe nobody sees it……..Its Christmas day and the jammies and the hammer and the bow ties are christmas presents! You can see the crumpled christmas wrapping on the right

  49. cowgirl says:

    Little Maxwell’s picture of the family and his hammer. (think Beatles)
