18 Pictures of People Having a More Magical Holiday Than You

Yeah, yeah, the holidays are supposed to be magical. We know this because TV and Pinterest tell us so. If you’ve ever attempted to create the perfect holiday experience for your family, the Clark Griswold in you knows how that turned out.

Christmas hams get burned, children suffer meltdowns, and husbands buy wives blenders. This stuff happens every year…or does it?

For folks living in the land of stock photography, the holidays are a magnificent time filled with wonder, glee, and more magical magic than you and I will ever experience in our collective lifetimes.

Take a look at 18 pictures of people having a way more magical holiday than you (or I, or anyone…except maybe Oprah):
