Weird Stock Photos: Holiday Edition

Happy December, Everyone!

A lot of people enjoyed our recent post, Weird Stock Photos: A Web Design Industry Secret, so we decided to do a holiday edition! We hope you enjoy these weird and wonderful holiday-themed stock photos.


Weird Holiday Stock PhotosChristmas Fire Safety

This illustration looks so much like a a public service announcement that I can only assume it’s meant to warn people that Christmas trees are flammable. DON’T USE REAL CANDLES, PEOPLE! How many times do I have to say it?




Weird Holiday Stock PhotosHanukkah Fire Safety

Dear cartoon Hasidic man: next time you’re carrying a menorah on public streets (I see that umbrella!), don’t light it first. Plus, you’re holding it awfully close to your hair. (Also, the label on this photo is: "a Jewish menorah in hat with hands." No.)






Weird Holiday Stock PhotosSkeleton Santa

Even Skeleton Santa wants to dance in the snow.







Weird Holiday Stock PhotosHoliday Conspiracy

We knew it! The trees and presents are plotting against us. The elves must be behind it.




Weird Holiday Stock PhotosHot Dog Reindeer

There are lots of jokes to be made about this photo, but I just keep coming back to Melanie’s comment about this photo: “Are those hot dogs?”




Weird Holiday Stock PhotosRiding the Golden Dreidel

This is one of a large series of golden-man-riding-dreidel photos. I like this one because he looks like he’s trying to use it for surfing.






Weird Holiday Stock Photos“Look What I Made”

Fine, that ornament is pretty impressive. But she just looks so pleased with herself!








Weird Holiday Stock PhotosChristmas Barbie

Coming soon to stores near you, complete with tiny dog and sparkler.





Weird Holiday Stock PhotosUgh, the Holidays

Maybe she didn’t like the fruitcake.






Weird Holiday Stock PhotosWhat’s on Your Mind, Hipster Santa?

The title of this photo as listed by the photographer: “Portrait of Santa Claus showing billboard.” None of that is true.





Weird Holiday Stock Photos…Anyway

Monster Santa is being pursued by his rabid sack of presents. Hardly a time for apathy, but whatever.
