There's the horrendous sweaters, the strained smiles that have clearly been held through three dozen different false starts and adjustments, and the fact that you finally had to give up and use one where someone's eyes are half open like they're channeling the dead. But those photos still look like an Annie Leibovitz exhibition compared to these frozen moments of holiday horror.
