Santa Came Early this Year: 10 Hilariously Awkward Family Christmas Photos

Awkward Family Christmas Photos

Ho Ho No

It’s some kind of a sick and twisted ritual: Get all hyped up about Christmas and then put even extra pressure on yourself and your kin to take the perfect family photo.

The reality, of course, is that unless you’ve been paid by Us Weekly to pose for the cover with your Town & County-worthy tree in your Telluride ski home in front of a roaring fire, chances are, the photo will suck.

It just will.

Thankfully most photos won’t suck as much as these photos from Awkward Family Photos do. They’re just the perfect blend of suck and pee-in-you-pants-OH-MY-GOD-thank-you-this-wasn’t-MY-family. And that’s a seriously meaningful achievement.

Take a look:
