11 Creative, Hilarious Christmas Cards - Awkward Galleries

Two Canadian couples have made a tradition of sending over-the-top awkward Christmas photos to their families and friends. Camilla Singh & Walter Willems, and Robyn & Mark Sprott–had never met before curator Christina Zeidler discovered them and arranged their favorites into an exhibit opening December 30th at the Gladstone Hotel. The exhibit, titled This Is Us, features over two dozen of the families’ send-ups of the classic holiday greeting card.

‘Tis The Season For Creativity

‘Tis The Season For Creativity - Christmas

“Every year I force my kids to take a non-traditional holiday photo. Thankfully my husband, who is a photographer, goes along with my crazy ideas. We are originally from California and just moved to Texas, so this year’s photo had to represent that.”

Merry Gothmas

Merry Gothmas - Family Portrait

“This photo is from the year my family got a German Shepherd puppy and more importantly the year I discovered the deep darkness of the soul and Bauhaus. My mom got a coupon for a free family/pet photo from the local Petco and dragged us there for our family Christmas card photo. Since it was free we didn’t get to pick which photo we got, so even though I smiled for like a dozen shots THIS was the one they sent us, probably because the teenager working the booth found it as funny as I do now. I got in so much trouble for it at the time, but I had totally forgotten about it until this season when my mom found it and sent it to me. Luckily she finds it funny now, but I guess since I never stopped wearing all black or listening to music performed by morose skeletons, she has had 20 years to get used to it.”
