Hair Club

“This family photo was taken at Sears in 1987 as present to our mom. I guess you can tell we all loved heavy metal music. The guy on the back right is the oldest of the four brothers and yes that’s his real hair. The one in the front left is me, the youngest of the four, and I was pissed that I had to take this picture.  We asked if they had an alley way for the back drop, but had to settle for a plain one.”

Sad Santa

“The Santa display was sad, and Santa looks even sadder. I found this pic of me with Santa and couldn’t help but notice the surroundings and his miserable look.”

Red Alert

“My mother always dressed my brothers and I alike, but one Christmas, she made everyone do it.  This is the result.  I’m the one who is not smiling because I’m pretty sure I just received a “talking to” for my objection to the madness.”

Nutcracker Love

“Growing up, I did ballet and I performed in The Nutcracker more times than I can remember. This was the year I was a candy cane and also the year before I discovered tweezers, apparently. The photographer insisted that I caress the nutcracker doll, resulting in this creepy, borderline objectophilia gem.”

Northern Exposure

“This is my family in the 90’s. We lived in Alaska at the time, so I guess my parents thought our relatives would like to see us like this.”

Saw

“Every year we would cut down a tree together. My dad would let each of us take turns using the saw. I am front and center and I look like a true gem.”

Christmas Chicken

“My parents took my brother and I to a Christmas Party in a fancy hotel in downtown Pittsburgh. Instead of having a Santa Clause, they had a Christmas Chicken instead. We don’t seem too pleased.”
