Christmas

Wunderbras

“When I was a kid, my mom, who is a seamstress, would make funky gifts every year for Christmas. Some time in the late 80s, she got her hands on some giant men’s underwear and made sports bra’s out of them. Hence, my two aunts and grandma modeling them on Christmas Eve. This is just one of many awkward Christmas eve photos.”

Casual Christmas

“My dad notoriously has never worn pajamas. My mom struggled to get him to wear a robe, too. Christmas mornings in the 80s he would eventually throw something on when my grandparents knocked on the door. Fortunately for us, he started putting pants on a few years ago for Christmas morning. Because now he gets cold.”

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.”

The Santa Experiment

“When I was a little kid, my mom had the idea to style my cousin into Santa Claus one year. The experiment went wrong.”

Dog Sitter

“Resentment at it’s finest…not sure if it’s from the elf costume or for us bringing home this baby!”

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.”
