Last week, I posted “33 Ways a Santa Photo Can Go Wrong” with my top 6 favorite fails vying for a $250 Munchkin gift card. That contest ends tomorrow. Today I’m posting my favorite family photo shoots gone awry for a separate chance to win a $250 Munchkin gift card.
If you want to vote for Epic Santa Fails, you’ve got one day left and you can do so here. If you want to laugh at families who couldn’t get it together long enough to take one decent photo for their holiday card, these should do the trick.
But seriously— wouldn’t the holidays be more fun if we all just relaxed and used the bad pics?
