Sad Santa

“The Santa display was sad, and Santa looks even sadder. I found this pic of me with Santa and couldn’t help but notice the surroundings and his miserable look.”

Christmas With Befana

“One year old me, Santa in furry slippers and the most disturbing and scary Befana ever. Italy, 1996 (In Italy the Befana is supposed to be an old, kind woman who deliver gifts to kids on Epiphany eve).”

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.”

“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.”
