Don’t Sweat It

“Christmas in Frankfurt, Germany, 1998. My grandma knitted sweaters for my granddad, cousin, brother and me.”

Holy Roller

“I hated taking pictures when I was little, especially ones where we had to dress up. I told my mom I was done and she didn’t believe me. I didn’t mean to make this face. It just sort of happened on its own. So this is the Christmas card she got.”

O Christmas Chair

“My mom’s family, 1963. My mom and aunt are the little girls in front row. We’re all very confused as to why the chair is the focal point of the picture. Apparently my mom’s grandmother, who took the photo, always took pictures where the people were not centered or heads were cut off. Otherwise it’s just a typical 1960s Christmas picture!”

Christmas Cheer From Sweden

“When I was in New Zealand my family wanted to wish me Happy Christmas and give me some of that Holiday cheer all the way from Sweden. Well it made me laugh. I look at it every Christmas”

Sweaty Santa

“Christmas Eve, 1995; Michoacán, México and it was 40 °C (104 °F). My mom really wanted to get a cute photo of me sitting on Santa’s lap, but I wasn’t having it. So we both posed with this poor sweaty Santa and she actually made the thing into a calendar.”

Almost In Wonderland

“My mom had the idea to photoshop us all on a ‘mushroom log’ one year, which required a lot of green screen editing. We sent this out for our Christmas card that year.”

Reindeer Games

“We went for a family portrait when I was nine and the photographer thought this would be a great addition to the shoot.”

Timer’s Up

“We were trying to work the self timer for a family Christmas photo. The timer went off a little sooner than expected.”
