Every year around Christmas time, when I’m getting ready to send out a stack of Christmas cards, I always contemplate doing the Christmas photo. I feel like it’s something that people start doing once they have children, right around the same time they start including a ridiculously long letter detailing all of their children’s accomplishments that year. Justin and I know a couple about our age who sent out their Christmas photo/card, and it had a sonogram picture of their unborn child on it! (That’s getting a head start on things!)
But really, does the Christmas card photo need to be so epic? Something formal, done in an Olan Mills studio? Why can’t it just be something fun…something that really captures who we are in the day to day?
So I’m thinking that next year, children or no children, we will be sending out a Christmas photo with our card. And instead of something cutesy or professional, it will be something epically ridiculous. Something that people will be talking about for the rest of the new year. “Have you seen the DeAngelis’ Christmas card?” “No! I didn’t get one! Man, I have GOT to get on that list!”
The following pictures didn’t make it onto this year’s Christmas card, but they are the top contenders for next year’s send-outs:
Okay, okay. I’m not sure that any of those photos would really make the Christmas card. But here are a few that might! Just because I’m sentimental…a yearbook of Christmas photos:
Merry Christmas! 😀
