You think your family is weird? Check out these Christmas cards that will make your family seem normal by comparison.
If you're like me, you looked at the picture and thought, "well this doesn't look so ba-- what the heck is that girl in the bottom corner doing?" In addition to the fact that less than half the family is actually looking at the camera, the true awkwardness lies in the implication that this was the BEST one that they were able to take. Where's the worst?
This one seems like a cute idea that kinda went astray. Don't get me wrong, using a picture from a fun family outing is great, but where exactly did they go? Also, I'll ignore the fact that the presumed father is wearing a dress, but did he really have to shatter the illusion that they may in fact be in medieval times (or in Agrabah-- I'm honestly not sure which) by having a cigar in his mouth?
"You know, back in my day, we didn't have happiness." Part of me is really hoping that this one is staged (kudos on even getting the dog to seem disinterested), but then the other part realizes that for this to be staged, someone had to suggest doing it. How did this seem like a good idea for a Christmas card?
Okay, I'm all for the quirky Christmas card angle, but you get ONE thing! You want to dress as a box? Sure. Mickey Mouse Santa hats? Okay, why not? Ribbons in your hair? Go for it. But you can't do them all at once. Do you really want to be the family that will forever be known as the gift-wrapped Mickey Mouse Club?
Big Lady Gaga fans I take it? I'm sure that this seemed like a good idea at first, but at some point while you're dressing each of your sons in this three-piece meat suit, wouldn't you stop and think, "what the heck am I doing?" The nice thing is that their suits double as Christmas dinner.
I'm not sure that this one really needs commentary...nope. This somewhat sexist, incredibly awkward, and easily made fun of Christmas card pretty much speaks for itself.
I like this one for a few reasons. For one, it clearly demonstrates the lesson that you don't let your significant others into the Christmas cards until you know that they're sticking around. Also, in addition to showing a tinge of spite (seriously, I'm sure there were other pictures that she wasn't in), I like that the person is essentially putting out ads for a new girlfriend. Guaranteed he had several relatives contact him with the names/numbers of women they knew soon after they saw the card.
Staged? I sure hope so. Otherwise Christmas just got a whole lot more interesting in this household. I suppose the real question though is, did Santa bring them what they asked for?
