Every family out there has their own weird and wonderful traditions when it comes to Christmas - and it's always kinda awkward when you accidentally let 'em slip in front of your pals, and they look at you like they'll never understand you as a person and wonder why they ever made friends with you in the first place.
But no worries this winter, because you can always take some comfort in the fact that your family festive traditions will definitely NEVER be as weird as those in the world of Christmas stock images.
Sure, you might like to eat your mince pie with a side of brussel sprout, but at least you're not any of the models who make a living by looking angry/confused/passionate at a plate of pigs in blankets.
You can consider this our present to you this year, because here's 19 of just the absolute weirdest and most magical festive stock images in existence. MERRY CHRISTMAS.
