Don’t Sweat It

Welcome To The Dollhouse

“This is a photo of me when I was about 2 years old around Christmas time. I’m at a house that was decorated every year with hundreds of dolls in various Christmas-themed scenes, but what a pyramid of dolls has to do with Christmas, I don’t know. I don’t remember this at all, so I must have blocked out the creepiness.”

The Placeholder

“This was my parent’s pregnancy announcement in 1991 a couple months before my birth. My dad saved the cardboard outline and gave it to me before the birth of my first child.”

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.”

The Nutcracker

“I work at a ballet school and kids often present artwork to their favorite teachers for the holidays…like this masterpiece of a nutcracker, with his sword.”

It Depends

“The Santa display was sad, and Santa looks even sadder.”

Tub Love

“My parents like to make our Christmas cards ‘one to remember,’ so they came up with this idea. Two parents, seven kids, all in my parents bathtub! One of my brothers turned on the shower while we were all in there and no one could move to get out.”

The Year Of Burgundy

“Each year, our family bought new outfits to color coordinate with the Christmas tree. 1988 was the year of burgundy. My dad did such a fantastic job with the lighting for this photo, it’s almost as though he was a professional photographer. Evidently, I was the only one truly happy to be there. I knew the Nintendo Power Pad was waiting for me under that tree.”
