Take Santa, an 80’s style Christmas knit, a twirl of tinsel and the batty Uncle you haven’t seen since last December 25 and what do you get? These photos. Oh Christmas time. Whatever you’re dreading about the festive season this year, nothing can be more awkward than this, right?

The pics are from Awkward Family Photos and there’s plenty more where they came from, which you can look at here.

Do you have a favourite of the awkward family Christmas shots? What’s been your most awkward Christmas moment? (Feel free to add your own!)
