Christmas is almost here! Holiday season is definitely the best time of the year! The decorations, the gifts, the food; what’s not to love about it? But the best part of the whole thing are the family portraits, no doubt about it.
It’s difficult to decide what this year’s group photo should look like. There are so many things to choose! The setting, the clothes, the pose, and whether or not to include Santa are just several of the tough decisions one has to make during this process. So, naturally, with so many variables, things are bound to go horribly wrong at some point. And when I say wrong, I mean absolutely hilarious. Check out these 16 pics, courtesy of Diply, of people who nailed (more like failed) their Christmas family portraits.
