Every Year These 4 Friends Take The Same Christmas Photo, And The Way They Change Is Amazing

Christmas is a great time to reconnect with family and friends, and the photos taken with them each year show how much everyone has changed with the passing of time. Four friends have taken this classic tradition to the extreme by not only posing together for a holiday portrait each year, but recreating every last detail of a group shot they captured back in 2009, and now everyone on the Internet is applauding them for their consistency. Scroll down to see each one for yourself, and let us know how well you think they did. If you’ve got a similar tradition that hasn’t changed since the first Christmas you tried it, tell us all about it in the comments.

A vampire? I thought he was slowly but steadily metamorphosing into Gwyneth Paltrow.

Two observations: 1) If you juxtapose the 2009 and 2017 photos, you would not think those were the same four fellows! 2) If you just focus on the guy on our right, over the eight years, it looks like he's been through a lot, and not all of it good...

It looks like one of them started transitioning the last year or so. If that's the case, then super happy for them!

I think it's a nice thing that they are doing, and why can't other people do that? While scrolling the comments before I posted, I saw some pretty nasty comments, and you know what? Forget you. They are doing something nice and it's not hurting anyone and I happen to figure that it's very interesting, which is in direct conment to certain other people that have commented on this very cool post.

9 years? Well that may appear interesting if you are young. Do it for another 21 years then post the results

Me and my 2 brothers and 2 sisters have done this since 1980 (every time we are all together - Mother’s Day, weddings, big birthdays, and Christmas). We found a photo that our mother had professionally done in 1968 and copied the poses over the last 37 years (so have many photos that I need to put together).
