12 hilarious reader photos of Christmases past
We’ve all been there: The whole family is getting ready to take the annual holiday card photo. Everyone is adorned in matching sweaters + reindeer antlers– even the cats. Everyone says “cheese” for the big moment… then Grandma’s dentures fall out. Hello, Family Christmas Card 2015.
Along with the giant family gatherings, tacky holiday garb, and visits with Santa inevitably come some pretty hilarious, awkward + cringe-worthy holiday moments… captured on film for countless years to come.
To offer you a comedic break amidst the bustling holiday season, we asked you, our readers + followers, for your most awkward holiday photos (a la Awkward Family Photos). Boy, did you deliver.
