I think it is simply because we are big dorks who like to capture the random moments of life.
But every year for the past several years, we set up the tripod, program the camera to auto snap a picture every minute, and go about decorating our Christmas tree.
The camera gives a little flash of light a second or two before the picture is snapped, giving us plenty of time to ham it up.
Sometimes we try, halfheartedly to get a nice family picture of us once the tree is decorated. They never turn out – but it is fun to try nonetheless.
It is amusing to go back and look at these pictures which we usually do on the night we are setting up the tripod to capture another year of Christmas tree trimming tomfoolery.
Here is one final picture for you.
And if you care to revisit some of the highlights from last year’s tree trimming you may do so here. I highly recommend it for I find it pretty darn funny. But then that is just me…
