For some people, Christmas is a time for a quiet, solemn reflection on the deeper meaning of the holiday, but for others, it’s just another excuse to get silly with their families. Here are a few of our favorite funny family Christmas photos.
All is Calm
Plenty of parents dream of a silent night while their little angels are up in bed dreaming of sugar plums, but it rarely happens, especially when the kiddos are all ramped up on Christmas sugar cookies and the prospect of seeing Santa in the flesh. Michelle Jones thought up one way to guarantee she has at least one silent night this year –a little duct tape.
Comfort and Joy
Don’t believe me that Christmas is never quiet with kids around? Just look at this joyous bunch photographed by Jamilia Jean.
Peace on Earth
Well, at least between humans. As Doctor Peter Venkman would point out though, when dogs and cats live together in harmony, it’s actually a sign of the apocalypse. So this card by wasn’t staged, it would actually be a sad scene, but as it is, it’s just a silly look at how crazy and stressful things can be during the holidays.
I Call Judas!
The problem with framing your family Christmas portrait like the last supper is that one person gets to be revered as Jesus and one person has to be Judas. This great Awkward Family Photos picture was submitted by their reader Robert.
Get it All Over With at Once
Why limit yourself to only one holiday when your card can actually cover every celebration coming up over the next year? posted this picture of their family spending Christmas morning together on a brisk Canadian morning. I assume they ran into the house to cuddle by the fire right after the shutter clicked.
