Tub Love - Christmas

Tub Love

“My parents like to make our Christmas cards ‘one to remember,’ so they came up with this idea. Two parents, seven kids, all in my parents bathtub! One of my brothers turned on the shower while we were all in there and no one could move to get out.”

The Fix Of ’76 - Christmas

The Fix Of ’76

“We had a professional photographer come to our house to take a family photo. When we got the photos back, all of them had something wrong– someone’s eyes were closed, weird smile, whatever–except for the last photo, which we thought was perfect and sent out on our Christmas cards. Then…we saw it. I (the youngest) evidently was having underwear creepage that needed to be fixed right then. At that very moment. And to this day, no one will ever let me forget The Great Underwear Fix of 1976.”

The Fight Before Christmas - Christmas

The Fight Before Christmas

“Our annual family pictures used to be very stressful events, but 1998 took the cake. In this picture, I had just taken a Santa doll from my sister. She retaliated by slapping me and taking the doll back. I was clutching my face and my dad flipped her over his shoulder just as the automatic timer went off. All my mom could do was stand by helplessly.”

Reindeer Games

“I had this same type of photo taken of all three of my kids but when I pulled out the reindeer antlers for my last child, the photographer that I had used for 15 years said ‘Oh please, No. I’m going to have to call Social Services.'”

Puberty Ruined Christmas: A Photo Essay - Christmas

Puberty Ruined Christmas: A Photo Essay

“My parents make my sister and me take a picture at the top of the stairs every Christmas morning, and these two were taken a few years apart.  The first picture is one of the last happy Christmas morning photos we have, which my parents titled “A Very Merry Pre-Pubescent Christmas To You.” The second photo shows what happened to our happy Christmases after we became teenagers. They claim puberty ruined Christmas.”
