The Search For The Best Worst Holiday Card Is On

Posted: Updated:

Getting entire families to pose for a holiday-card-worthy photo is notoriously difficult. Yet, for some reason, most parents brush aside their outtakes with screaming children (or worse). Ilana Wiles, of Mommy Shorts, wants to change that.

Earlier this month, she asked her blog readers to submit the photos they would NEVER use on a holiday card. Then, she went ahead and turned those snapshots into some of the best "worst holiday cards" imaginable. Of course, she isn't doing this to shame anyone.

"As miserable as these photos are, I hope they bring you joy because you'll know your family isn't the only one who can't get the baby to stop crying or the toddler to stop moving for your holiday cards," Wiles explains. "Awful family photos are a universal truth."

A truth and a blessing. Enjoy a sampling of the photos she collected, and head over to the Mommy Shorts Facebook fan page to see even more.

Merry Christmas to all. And to all a good night.
