We Can’t Be The Only Ones Who Want To Punch The #ChristmasJammies Parents In The Face

You know how every season there’s always one or two families who send you a Christmas opus of each family member’s individual accomplishments for the year? Everyone has a few of those friends, don’t they? Well, the Holderness family didn’t think it would be enough just to annoy the shit out of their own family and friends, so they made a viral video to subject the entire Internet to their #HumblebragChristmas  #ChristmasJammies.

We’ve decided to spare you from watching the whole video by just pulling out some of the best #humblebrags. Here goes:

Warning: If you don’t already hate them from looking at the above screenshot, maybe this post isn’t for you.

Humblebrag #1 – We bought a new Prius.

Check it out, we just bought a Prius, B, and it matches these – perfectly.

Their jammies match their Prius.

Humblebrag #2 – Our grade schooler ran a triathlon.

She can also count to 100 in Chinese. She’s adorable. We don’t make fun of kids. We’re not horrible people. Good job, Lola!

Humblebrag #3 – Mom was in Ironman 3

‘Nuff said.

Humblebrag #4 – Mom competed in Ironman

Screen Shot 2013-12-16 at 1.21.30 PMEven though she got punched in the face at the start of the race she still finished in (something I can’t make out, but I assure you it rhymes). 

Humblebrag #5 – Double Stroller/ Neighborhood of Mansions

Screen Shot 2013-12-16 at 1.23.35 PM

Can anyone say, “American Dream?”

Humblebrag #6 – Dad’s Humblebrag-stravaganza

Screen Shot 2013-12-16 at 1.27.08 PM

Dad did so many amazing things this year -they had to be framed in a multiple choice question. Answer? All of the above!

Here’s the whole video if you think you can bear it.

      Haha that gif is totally perfect for this scenario.

    • Bethany Ramos

      This is my fave sceeeeene from Parks and Rec! Yay. And I hate the dad’s 90s butt cut hair in the PJs video.

  • cesp

    Yes it’s crazy annoying but the kids are effing cute as hell. Plus they clearly had some serious family fun and it is the holiday season so I’m going to give it a pass.

  • http://www.twitter.com/ilikeswears Dusty

    I would have liked to learn more about the vasectomy.

    • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

      Listen, there just aren’t enough holiday songs about vasectomies period

    • Kay_Sue

      It’s a serious gap in the marketplace.

    • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

      Listen, I’m not pointing fingers here, but I have asked you to get back in the studio for ages. I’m sick of all of your “But am busy with Kanye” excuses

    • Kay_Sue

      I can’t help it. When Yeezus calls, you answer, dammit.

  • Megan

    It’s times like this I’m glad the word uuuuugh exists

  • Lindsey Sweet

    Now don’t hate me, but I thought it was kinda cute. Annoying yes, but not all that bad. Loved the matching P.J.’s, lol!

  • cesp

    And it Prius V…sorry, but I sell Toyotas. :)

    • http://twitter.com/mariaguido Maria Guido

      haha – I thought they were trying to rap.

  • Lbdmom

    Someone sent this to me via Facebook and I watched it just the other day. I know this woman, I used to dance with her like a hundred years ago and she was very nice. I believe she is or was a news anchor. I thought it was cute and her kids are crazy adorable. I’m also not jealous of her fitness or McMansion though, so I guess that’s why it didn’t bother me. She was always very talented so I’m not surprised she’s doing so well.

    • elle

      Why is it whenever people don’t like something somebody always throws it back to jealousy? We aren’t just allowed to not like something, it has to be that we are jealous?

    • CMJ

      Pretty much the LAST thing on earth I am jealous of is a McMansion.

    • Kay_Sue

      If I had one, I’d have to clean it. Why do I want that?

    • AlbinoWino

      haha, my mom always says to think about that whenever considering getting a big house.

    • Kay_Sue

      It’s a big consideration, in my opinion. ;)

    • Lbdmom

      You can totally not like something and not be jealous. But not liking a video with cute kids dancing with their parents in pjs? Come on.

    • elle

      Hey, I’m not ashamed to admit that I am totally jealous of her fitness. I hate working out so much and her arms are super out of control in a good way! But even with the adorable kids dancing in PJs I still just don’t like it. And I’m really not jealous!

    • elle

      I mean, I’m not jealous of anything but her insane fitness level.

    • brebay

      most kids are cute. But cute on cue is just irritating.

    • courtneth

      I think it would be fair to assume that the author of this post is at least resentful of their wealth and fitness, or she wouldn’t be bothered by them “humblebragging” about it. I mean, she implies that you should hate them based on the first screenshot. This post is dripping with resentment!

    • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

      Idk I’m resentful of their wealth and fitness but they also seem pretty annoying . Despite cute kids.

    • courtneth

      I am also resentful but I thought it was cute! Until I realized it was basically an advertisement for their business. That kinda ruined it for me.

    • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

      Cournth and I are going to sit in the corner and drink our H8rAde and have a Very Resentful Christmas ™

    • courtneth

      Can we spike the H8rAde? It’ll be festive!

    • CMJ

      Uh, this bothered me because it’s easy to make a video and share it with just your friends and family as opposed to all the of universe. Not because I am jealous.

    • elle

      Ok we are so the same person. If I didn’t know any better (ie seeing your picture) I would swear you could be one of my half sisters.

    • CMJ

      if you’re half Arab it could get really weird :)

    • elle

      Lol I am but my half sisters aren’t! They are white. People sould never believe we are related, except for our hair. They are different colors but we all have my dad’s waves.

    • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

      1: I am jealous of her fitness

      2: i am jealous of her Mcmansion. her house seems way nicer than my house. IDK, my house probably is cooler in some ways but her house is so pretty on the outside.


    • CMJ

      Do you want my dude to edit and add some graphics to your Xmas Video?! He could just key in anything you want to add to your house.

    • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

      YES! yes that would be awesome can he also add me and you getting crunk in it please say yes

    • CMJ

      Done. OMG, we’re going to be so glamorous….and crunk.

    • Lbdmom

      She does have nice hair.

  • Martyn

    Yikes. They seem exhausting.

  • guest

    I actually thought this would be way worse than it was. I thought it was cute and they obviously have video / editing skills etc. I also think that the blogger was a bit tough on it.

  • Rachel Sea

    It’s an ad for their new business venture, which is obnoxious, but comprehensible.

  • Megan Zander

    <3 for " we don't make fun of children, we're not monsters"

  • courtneth

    Well I was expecting to be thoroughly annoyed, but I was let down. This is pretty cute! And a little funny. I didn’t care for the shameless plugs at the end, though. That kind of ruined it for me.

  • MaeX3

    thanks for saying exactly what I was thinking

  • Zettai

    I would say it was cute UNTIL it was intentionally made viral. Accomplishments and nice things are great, but when you tell the world about it instead of close family/friends, it becomes bragging.

  • Tinyfaeri

    There’s a catalogue that has nothing but PJs in it. They have matching sets for every family member, including cats and dogs. It’s what I threaten my husband with.

    • SA

      hahahaha!! Me too!!! He gets very irritated at the idea of having matching pjs with the cat.

  • Hannah

    This was actually really cute, though the vasectomy info was overshare. Still, must have been super fun to make. :)

  • ChopChick

    I want to hate it a little, but it made me smile a lot, so I guess I’m not on this hate wagon.

  • brebay

    Ugh. What don’t people get about this? No matter how amazingly, wonderfully, gorgeously brilliant your kids are, they will never EVER be as grand as the kids of the people you send this crap to.

  • Kay_Sue

    The dad’s hair…that was…a flashback.

  • Davelope


    I’ve done everyone a favour by creating this very short video… please share
