Christmas

Welcome To The Club

“This is a family pic from when were kids. We were the cool family on the block.”

Turqlenecks

“It was the 80s. My dad thought it was a good idea to take a picture in the woods with snow. The look on his face doesn’t validate the brilliance of the idea. Mom chose the color of our shirts. Apparently she expected more of a tropical setting.”

Deck The Halley’s

“This is not a picture of terrified 6-yr-old me being held hostage by Santa Claus and his not-so-little helper, but actually a real holiday photo shoot at a toy store during Christmas season in 1985. In case you’re wondering what Santa’s helper was wearing, it was a Halley’s Comet-inspired costume because Halley’s Comet was all the rage in 1985.”

The Anniversary Party

“For my parents 20th anniversary, my mom decided to dress up in her wedding dress and get our family Christmas photos done in front of the place they were married. I’m the girl bending over trying to hold down my brother who wanted to get away for obvious reasons. Needless to say, it was not everything my mom had hoped for.”

Wet Christmas

“Nothing says ‘Holidays’ like waiting in line for an hour and a half to see Santa, only for our son to have an accident the minute before his turn. Santa refused to let him sit on his lap. He gladly welcomed our daughter though, and let’s just say she didn’t enjoy it very much. Can you feel the Christmas magic?”

The Bell Tolls

“I’m originally from Nazareth Illit, Israel, a very diverse city, where Jews, Christians and Muslims live together. Since I was born on Christmas Eve my parents used to invite our Christian neighbor who used to dress up as Santa and he would always come bearing gifts. In the photo my mom is holding the present he gave me and me, terrified in her arms. Perhaps it was the fake forehead that broke me.”
