A VERY CRINGY CHRISTMAS

Aah, Christmas – a time of magical memory making, festive food fixation, Bucks Fizz abuse and family fun.

No…

Looking back on our Christmas past we’ve come to notice that something wasn’t quite right back in the day, and the cringe worthy photo evidence is here to prove it. So here’s some of the UO team with their tinsel in a tangle.

When you lack the ability to dress yourself, there’s a certain amount of trust to be had with your parents. I hope the present stash behind me made up for this Christmas-inspired MC Hammer faux pas. CAN’T TOUCH THIS.

Kate Prior
It’s Christmas, so take your clothes off. This is by no means the only scantily clad Christmas photo I have from my childhood. This has since become a tradition in the Prior household. The swimsuit no longer fits, but I pretty much still have the same body shape.

Double denim and a snapback. Who needs a Barbie Doll Dreamhouse when you look this er, cool?

A VERY CRINGY CHRISTMAS

Kate Newton
What can I say? I was many years ahead of this year’s trend on velvet – I’m a natural born trendsetter.

Delphine Bost
This goes to prove that parents in the 80’s didn’t bother with seasonal trends. Knitwear + jelly shoes = fail.

Chloe Temple
Every Christmas, my parents would present me with a gift in the hope it would unlock some sort of natural talent in me. This was the year it was agreed that music wasn’t my forte.

Now whack out those family albums and cringe your way through Christmas. You’ll probably like THIS too.
