Every year my family has done the traditional, typical Christmas card photos – we’re all looking lovely, and cheery, and picture perfect. I came across this picture on pinterest and completely laughed out loud:
I absolutely adore this picture, for 3 reasons:
- It clearly was not staged – you can’t make kids this age pretend to make faces like this. Well maybe… maybe the mom gave them all a lollipop and then snatched it away and snapped the pic. Either way, these are not faking faces – these are faces filled with anti-Joy which makes this photos so hilarious and genuine.
- This is real life! Pictures of lovely perfect, smiling faces are great, but how often during a given day, do any of the faces actually look that way? My guess is they look more like the photos above.
- Maybe its just the year we’ve had, but I’m just in the mood for some fun and levity this year for Christmas – and this card just makes me smile.
So, I took to pinterest to get some more inspiration, and I put together a list of over 50 (and growing) awesome ideas for fun/non-traditional Christmas cards. There are ideas for singles, couples, families, kids and more – something for everyone, but they are all sure to put a smile on your face! Here’s to instilling a bit of cheer this holiday season!!
