We've all done it while posing for a group photo.

Someone has to be the clown, right?

Whether it's the fingers-in-a-V behind your brother's head or crossing your eyes, you've done it, too, haven't you?

 Here's a long-ago photo from a friend in Indiana tourism (Jan, you haven't changed one little bit!).

Jeff & Jan

Jan tells this story about this photo with her brother, Jeff:

I think I was five … so this would have been 1966 and we traveled from Angola, Indiana, to Santa Claus.

My mom thought this would be our Christmas card photo that year.

My parents watched us take the picture and never saw me stick my tongue out (until the photo arrived back in Angola). Needless to say, my mom had to stage a new picture.

This has provided us with lots of laughs over the years and I thought you guys would get a kick out of it.

Do you have a favorite photo and story from a visit to Santa Claus Land or Holiday World & Splashin' Safari? We'd love to hear it — and maybe even feature it here on our HoliBlog.
