This Holiday Season, Spread a Little Awkwardness
by Alyssa Jung
Do you have bad holiday photos lying around that will never make the family album? If so, dig out those snapshots and embrace the fashion/hair/pose mistakes, because they could snag you some swag just in time for the holidays.
“Awkward Family Photos,” the popular website that collects and posts viewers’ most cringe-worthy pictures from around the world, is running an Awkward Holiday Photo Contest. Just submit your worst holiday photo with a brief caption by December 19. Visitors can then vote on the top 10 finalists and the winner will get signed copies of Awkward Family Photos books and the board game.
Some submissions are already posted, even though voting won’t begin until December 20. If you’re in need of a laugh (or to find a family more awkward than yours), click through photos of a boy cradling rats in Santa hats; a Texas Christmas complete with guns and dolls; checkered tablecloth outfits, times five; and plenty of moping, crying and all-around awkwardness.
For non-holiday fun, check out the Awkward Pet Photo Caption Contest, presented by PetSmart Charities.
