Christmas and New Year is a great time to get together with family and friends, and what better way to ensure the survival of those memories than by taking photos? Not so fast: as you aim your camera lens at assorted family members, think before you shoot. Think about all those framed pictures resting on the fireplace that you wish were really in the fire

The fact is that none of us can avoid awkward family photos, least of all during the holidays, so we may as well celebrate these embarrassing, surreal or just plain weird photos. Perhaps you’ve come across a few websites purely dedicated to doing this. Well we’ve trawled the web to bring you the very best / worst (depending which way you look at it) funny family photos. What’s more, each member of the eDreams blog team explains why they chose their pick of the bunch….

This is Ina’s favourite photo because…

It’s fabulous! It has everything! It’s contemporary, includes medieval weapons, a castle and some magical sun rays. Its knights vs. cowboys and the cowboys are losing for not appearing in the picture.

This is Kim’s favourite photo because…

It’s the height of bad taste: a half alcoholic father, a tyrant mother willing to punish with her rolling pin, a little witch in power and a poor deformed child with elephant ears … Argh! The bird and the dog, partners in misfortune, are the only ones that save it!

This is Angela’s favourite photo because…

I never thought a child of six could look the same as a woman of 84…

This is Rosanna’s favourite photo because…

The poor dog is thinking, “Why does this have to be my master? I give up…”

This is Elisa’s favourite photo because…

This would win any family costume contest… The red cheeks are the best, the dad is especially great!

This is Sam’s favourite photo because…

Among the older brothers I think there is a hidden one – on the left with glasses. He’s tried to trick us by wearing black but I don’t he’s that much of a rocker! I wonder if, with so much Gothic influence, the little ones will change their style…

This is Sophie’s favourite photo because…

I love the crazed smiles on the little one’s face and way she seems to be impersonating a soldier with her stance – and that’s before we’ve even got to the clothes. We can all laugh at these hideous jumpers but I’m sure that every one of us has a photo hiding somewhere in which they are wearing something very similar…

This is Maria’s favourite photo because…

The children’s scared faces are incredible! The look like they’re about to have a heart attack! They must be looking at something terrifying because I’m afraid just looking at them. The baby’s hair is standing on end and he’s about to fall back in fear.

This is Anna’s favourite photo because…

This is what happens when you believe in Santa a little too much. I wonder what Father Christmas would think if he saw this family…

This is Julia’s favourite photo because…

How technology has changed! These ones remind me of my dad’s first mobile.

This is Ricardo’s favourite photo because…

It reminds me of the cover of the best album, Queen II. I can see Freddie, Brian, Roger and John, but I don’t know who the fifth member is.

Which is your favourite photo? Do you have any family pictures like this you’d like to share? Let us know…
