By Deni Kirkova for MailOnline. Yesterday we brought you what we thought were the most awkward Christmas photos of all time, but overnight, more snaps have surfaced of families grimacing in seasonal attire. As families start sending out their Christmas cards, many - like Tony and Cherie Blair earlier this week - will have opted for the personal touch, printing seasonal snaps featuring loved ones, children and pets. But as the former Prime Minister and his barrister wife's annual greeting proves, festive portraits have the potential to inspire more ha ha ha's than ho ho ho. These pictures show the cringe-inducing lengths some parents will go to produce the ultimate holiday greeting even if that means stripping off, cuddling bizarre pets, dressing in matching tartan or even donning PVC. One family even braved the winter chill to strip down and show off their brand new hot tub.
It’s Beginning to Look Like Another Awkward Family Christmas
The holidays are a magical time of year, when families come together to bond, reminisce, and maybe even pose for a nice group photo while everybody is home. It's all well and good when a family decides to take a unique Christmas picture From horribly bad timing to just plain bad taste , these are twenty of the most hilariously awkward family photos ever taken. Merry Christmas from the trashiest family you know. We're talking real pieces of garbage. As dorky as this image may be and oh yes, it be dorky , you've got to hand it to a dad who commits like this. It's one thing to say you'll dress up like the Grinch for a Christmas card; it's quite another to cover your entire face in green paint and wear a skin-tight morphsuit. What are you laughing at? That cat IS his family , and they're clearly very close. Photobomb level : Infinite!
Have A Wonderful Cat-Mas!
As soon as Thanksgiving dinner is gobbled down and the dishes are finally washed, a lightbulb in our brain switches from turkey legs to Christmas trees. It's finally acceptable to be in the Christmas spirit! We're putting up lights, hanging reefs, and blasting Christmas radio on Spotify. Let's get some Christmas cheer, people! Once the decorations are hung with care and our eggnog is properly spiked, it's time for the moment we've been waiting for all year. The annual Christmas family portrait. Year after year, our mailboxes are filled with cards from our neighbors, family, and friends. Each with their own holiday greeting and witty family portrait or a collage of their year thus far. And although holiday portraits are all about love and seasons greetings, we can't help but notice the small competitive edge that they bring.
Bad Santas with ghostly faces, matching Christmas jumpers and the whole family naked in the living room, these photographs are definitely on the naughty list. It's the most wonderful time of the year - captured in the most awful and awkward way possible. Some went even further, dropping the swimming trunks and bikinis, favouring a fig leaf - instead of mistletoe - to cover their modesty in saucy family shots. Others covered up in the retro-styled Christmas sweaters that are all the rage at the moment but some of these festive frights are more suited to Halloween. Although even the worst woollen wear can't match one family's own tie-dye fashion disaster. The smile on children's faces at Christmas often makes the months of work that parents put in to finding the perfect present all worth it. But instead their kid's terrible tantrums and tears have been turned into cherished memories in these pics. One naughty boy was even wrapped up in Christmas lights as a punishment - Santa surely didn't visit him that year.
