For royals like Prince Charles and his wife, Christmas cards are a dominant Christmas tradition through which they can share festive messages alongside their most treasured pictures.

Even for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Christmas cards are a small way to share their familial joy with the world.

While the royal family prides itself in professionally-themed pictures on their Christmas cards, other families around the world have adopted the tradition and sometimes, the outcomes range from the impressive to the hilarious.

Just like the royals, but more hilarious

For Jonathan Stanley and his family, Christmas cards don’t have to be boring and serious. The family has created great pictures showing everything realistic aspects of life right down to the chaotic. For Stanley, Christmas cards are more than mere images: They are realistic representations of their daily experiences.

The tradition, which the family started in 2014, was a product of a failed attempt to take a Christmas card picture, with each take having a different problem. In one take, their child would cry. In the next, one of them would blink or sneeze. And at other times, even the camera would misfire! But, after seeing their pictures, they decided to go with the hilarious 'worst takes' that became very popular among their recipients.

From there the tradition was born – instead of trying to capture perfect family photos for our Christmas cards, we would try to capture the chaos of parenting.

Their pictures are realistic depictions of life. For example, they show how the boys chaotically prepare for Christmas and freak their parents out.

@drewbott88 remarked

I almost can't appreciate the hilarity of the photo because I'm so jealous. They're so young too!

When do we grow out of bitterness? Lol

@TannedCroissant praised Stanley by saying:

People like you are the only people who should be allowed to do family picture Christmas cards

@-jsm- requested a Christmas card after witnessing their awesomeness:

PMing them my address. I expect I’ll receive my card soon.

To Stanley, his wife, and their three children, humor appears to be a shared strength, and they are not ashamed to share the hustles and bustles of parenting with the world. They don’t just smile in pictures; they tell the story of a big family's joy, love, and unity alongside the chaos of real life. Are you ready for Christmas?
