Christmas

Holiday Tron

“My mom had a thing for dressing us all alike for Christmas pictures.”

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.”

Dry Christmas

“This was my family’s Christmas card for 1995. My mom came up with the crazy idea to have us all wear different towels in the picture. It still makes me laugh every time I see it.”

Santa Got Run Over By A Reindeer

“This picture was taken in about 1952. The boy sitting on the lap of ‘Santa’ is my husband’s cousin, Teddy. ‘Santa’ is ‘Uncle Bob’ who apparently didn’t notice that his mask was melting off. My husband thankfully doesn’t remember any of this. No word if little Teddy ever recovered from the trauma.”
