Awkward family photos are one of the internet's favourite things. And family photos don't get more awkward than around Christmastime. It's that special time of year where we all come together, dress in our finest (or not so finest) jumpers, and make some Christmas memories. Mostly about arguments, overeating and getting drunk.
