Do you take a holiday photo?

If yes, who is in it? What do you do with it? Any special ideas for holiday photos?

I ask because I like to hear new ideas and good stories.

My daughter just turned 10. She still believes in Santa... even though all of her friends say "It's your mom!"... and, she asks questions. She thinks the REAL Santa is the one at the end of a holiday train ride that we do every year. She knows the others are fakes. Funny, huh? So, we'll get her Santa photo with the real Santa again this year.

We also do a family photo. We haven't been very creative. It's just us in regular clothes. Do you take holiday pictures wearing funny PJs or special dress?

I'd love to hear what you've done... and, ideas for what you think would be great.
Hair: tight waves to loose curls. Thick. Coarse. Dry. Natural redhead until bright white strands popped out. Color with FramColor now. Shampoo: alternate Phytojoba with Cowash: Suave coconut, Paul Brown or those that didn't work well as a conditioner. Conditioner: can't find one heavy enough. Product: Aveda Brilliant Humectant Pomade. DT: Coconut Oil

I sometimes get one with my dogs and Santa, but I'm too embarrassed to do anything but keep it on my 'fridge.
I think it's cute that your daughter still believes in Santa! My 10-year-old thinks it's cool to be jaded.

I used to take a holiday photo of my kids (nothing all that creative--maybe all of them in red) and sent paper Christmas cards. So many of my friends are on Facebook that a holiday card seems redundant.
I am sending a few cards this year to friends who aren't on Facebook. I didn't do a holiday photo--just using a recent one of the kids.

I've never sent photos of me and my husband. The kids are MUCH cuter.
This is the only Xmas pic I've ever done. We just had the neighbor kid take a pic and I turned it into a card. Not very creative but it was fun.

My 10-year-old is pretty silly about a lot of things, but she has an older sister (14) who let the cat out of the bag about Santa. On the other hand, she probably tries to act more grown up than her sister did at the same age--again, it's the older sister influence.
I actually caved and got Christmas cards this year. (Snapfish was running a special.) We hadn't done them in a few years, and I have some friends and family who either aren't on Facebook or have an account and never use it. (That's the way I am with Twitter.)
OMG those are hilarious. Tho the one with the clown is gonna give me nightmares.

Oh lordy. Ellen is doing worst photos on her show and someone submitted #16, which she showed last week. I think my mouth hung open for at least 10 minutes.

And seriously, what is the point of sending a holiday card with photos you've already posted on Facebook to someone you know is active on Facebook?
