    Sometimes, we’re awkward in ways that keep the Christmas spirit alive. Like donning your Christmas loot!

  2. jilliejill says:

    i think this picture is awesome :D

  3. Plurabelle says:

    I am so making my kids do this for our Christmas morning photos this year.

  4. FVD says:

    OMG I had the exact same wedding gown costume when I was little! *Squee*

    However, with that tree and that guy it’s spectacularly awkward!

  5. Krejaton says:

    The photo from Maryln Manson’s first wedding.

  6. Tom Perkinson says:

    Brother: “I hope my parents don’t realize I’m blazed. “

  7. spanky says:

    I wear my sunglasses at night , in the house with bare feet and acid wash jeans and a track top. someone should write a song about THAT.

  8. fish says:

    I HAVE THE ANSWER!!! it’s NOT Christmas, its halloween and dads dressed as a tree!

  9. Pipergirl says:

    She’s hit on the perfect double-hitter for a massive present payload – have your confirmation the week before Christmas!

    I’m pretty sure in the 90s my brother and all his friends lived in sweats and oversized sunglasses training to be ninjas. Only thing missing is the “Hang Ten” t-shirt.

  10. MYRA says:

    The boy is showing off his brand new shades and jacket. The little girl is posing in her own bridal outfit. The veil looks to me like a cafe curtain segment and the skirt could be Mom’s dressy half slip. She’s wearing white bedroom slippers and some beads that she found in the junk drawer. She’s happy with her homemade creation!

  11. Kylee says:

    I had that exact Fisher Price dress up as a bride GOWN. Because is WAS A GOWN DAMNIT and I walked around just like that all the time.

  12. XJ says:

    Oh yeah. Catholics.
    You have to get dressed up like that for your First Communion when you’re a little girl.
    I guess it IS weird to anyone who isn’t Catholic.

  13. Jayne says:

    I had that exact bride costume

  14. Rachel says:

    Madonna and Beastie Boys. It’s all I see.

  15. corinne says:

    Oh this could have been us. I love them for sending this in! People who can be comfortable all these years later (20 at least– the acid wash jeans give it away) with these images from childhood are my absolute heros.

  16. M.G. says:

    Their Christmas appropriate costumes are Snow White and Snow, the rapper.

  17. person says:

    I got it! Its halloween, and dad dressed up as a Christmas tree!

  18. Gogit says:

    Since she planned her First Communion at Christmas time, Sis got a swami teen FBI dude to guard her presents while he was ready to take down any and all marauders- as long as they weren’t armed with tacks or broken glass!

  19. Jodi says:

    That is just too cute…he didn’t ask for socks but he did ask for underware…his sister thought that it was still Halloween!!

  20. Tom T. says:

    This is an actual wedding photo of Elvis and Priscilla.

  21. Don says:

    He had asked for a Nintendo 64 and nothing else. When he realized the Nike jacket and sunglasses were his Christmas presents he knew he had to get back at his parents. He decided to stage a “sit-in” in front of the tree. He would sit there as long as it took to get their attention and make them understand how unmerry he was. As for his sister he still couldn’t get her to understand the difference. You aren’t the “Bride of Frankincense” he kept telling her.

  22. Ducky says:

    I Married the Mob meets Wonder Years – Christmas edition.

  23. LuLu says:

    I’m guessing this is Christmas morning. Little one got a bride dress up outfit and big bro got aviator glasses and a windbreaker from the grandparents. They snapped the shot to send with a thank you to the grandma and grandpa.

  24. Iris says:

    It’s really hard to maintain the ‘badass’ fa├žade with your little sister playing dress-up next to you…

  25. Chad says:

    Is he doing yoga?

  26. mitey says:

    apparently he should have asked for socks for christmas too

  27. Noneya says:

    This should be on an album cover.

  28. Sara says:

    Oh my goodness, how odd!

  29. Caivan says:

    why is there a lion on the xmas tree?

  30. Kat says:

    I’m guessing they both are wearing what Santa brought them. Sis got a pretend bridal set, and brother got that groovy Nike jacket and shades!

  31. Rachel says:

    He looks like one of the Beastie Boys! (the early years)

  32. carol says:

    They wanted the little girl to start thinking ahead. “You don’t want to wait til the last minute, hon.”

  33. Bethyanne says:

    This photo is so awesome, I don’t know where to begin. My favorite part may be that the brother is in the lotus position. God, why couldn’t my family have been this awkward?

  34. Mel says:

    For Christmas, she got a costume set and he got a pair of Ray-Ban Aviators. Mystery solved!

  35. cowgirl says:

    After meditating for hours in the lotus position, Johnny was able to see his dream vision appear before his bespectacled eyes. His future bride would appear to him at the stroke of midnight on Christmas.

  36. Amy K says:

    Parents intention: Having the kids pose in front of the tree with gifts they’d asked for…
    Big Brother: Ray Bans and a Nike Jacket.
    Little Sister: A play Bridal Gown.
    Cute idea, but makes for an odd photo.

    • Whit says:

      You nailed it on all three counts. That’s me at about fifteen and my sister at five. I’m glad her friend caught that it got published, they didn’t notify me. And for what it’s worth, I don’t think I was pissed, just “cool” (as judged by me then, not me now).

      Favorite. Photo. Ever.

      • lindykhouhoo says:

        I love the whole story, the picture and the opportunity to peek into other’s minds to see what they are thinking.
        Great of you to share. Hope I can find a few of my own family pics.

  37. Skeemer118 says:

    They’re probably showing off what they got for Christmas. She probably got dress up stuff & he got…um…truck driver stuff?

  38. Elizabeth Rival says:

    Yet another reason why Christmas related decor and music should be held off until Dec. Look at the confusion its bringing on our youth.

  39. Tracy says:

    He’s wearing the same look I see on my face in old photos where I’m “forced” to pose with my younger sister. “I do not want to be here. I am too cool to have to get my picture taken with this little twit.”

  40. Steben says:

    Congrats on the wedding, handsome couple

  41. Dr. Blah says:

    I want a Behind The Awkwardness story.

  42. starrlaboo says:

    why is the little girl wearing a dress with off the shoulder straps..too mature for a little girl

  43. Kim says:

    I want this to be my Christmas card. Keep ‘em guessing.

  44. Mrs. Shrub says:

    McLovin and his little sister!

  45. Erica says:

    “Posting #1 on the official list of what not to wear for a Christmas photo.”

  46. Becky says:

    Parents who let their kids express their individuality do allow for Awkward Family Photos (like this one) – but they also make healthier kids. More power to these parents!

  47. j m says:

    Leftover Halloween costumes???? I’m confused.

  48. jlouise says:

    Hummmmm…a Christmas tree,a bride and an undercover agent sitting in a yoga pose…mysterious indeed.

  49. Rachel says:

    Maybe they put their Christmas tree up really early and it was actually Halloween.

  50. veluxx says:

    are those jean printed sweats?
