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.”

“This family portrait was taken during a beach photo session. Yes, that is a frisbee flying towards my husband’s face. Fortunately, nobody was seriously injured in the process, and we DID end up using this picture on our Christmas card that year. It just pretty much sums up our family in a way no words can.”

“This is a photo of my boyfriend’s cousin. He has been an amazing athlete in most winter sports from a very young age. In this photo he is about seven or eight. I don’t know who forced him to wear this outfit, but when I saw it a year ago at their house, I knew I had to send it to you guys. He gave me permission to post this, albeit begrudgingly.”
