Dashing Through The Snow

“Our first family photo with our son and my wife wanted to have Christmas photos taken to send out to the family. I put on a smile, but I have always HATED this photo as we looked like giants in this teeny little sleigh.”

“The kids were having a shoot for our Christmas card and we had no idea why the photographer stopped shooting and fell to the ground laughing.”

Hot Tub Greetings

“My parents just got a hot tub and were very excited about it. Therefore, my grandma hired a professional photographer to take a family photo in the hot tub. For some reason they posed with wine and candles even though the children were not old enough to drink… and sent it out to 150 plus friends as a Christmas card.”

Clown Under

“Perth, Australia in the late 80’s. I’m the littlest and pictured with my 2 older brothers and my older sister. We all have no idea who the clown is or why he is even there…just so random!”

Christmas At The Corner

“Here I am at The Corner Bar all decked out and ready to sit on Santa’s lap. (Santa was played by a regular patron of the bar). We’d stop on the way to my grandparents’ house, and every year I’d check to see if the reindeer were atop the roof of the bar. If that’s not Christmas magic, I’m not sure what is.”

Shady Santa

“Growing up, we celebrated Christmas Eve at my grandmother’s house and Santa always showed up. I’m not sure where this one came from but I remember thinking how odd he seemed…”
