Kelly Clarkson's awkward family Christmas photo


Kelly Clarkson's awkward family Christmas photo

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Dec 11, 2013

Family photos are a tradition when it comes to Christmas cards. And most people try to make sure that their families look their best for the annual picture. Not Kelly Clarkson. She decided to go an entirely different route. Kelly's Christmas card photo features the singer, her husband Brandon Blackstock and Kelly's two stepchildren, along with their dogs, wrapped in Christmas decorations and staring awkwardly at Santa Claus.

It's all part of a promotion for her new album "Wrapped in Red" and her television special "Kelly Clarkson's Cautionary Christmas Tale," which airs Wednesday (Dec. 11) at 10:00 PM ET on NBC. (Watch a clip from the special, featuring Kelly, Reba McEntire and Trisha Yearwood above.)

The "American Idol" winner tweeted the photo on Tuesday and invited her followers to submit their own photos for a chance to win an autographed copy of her album. Fans can submit their own photos to themed galleries including one featuring throwback Christmas photos, awkward Christmas photos, photos with Santa and more.

Details on how to win can be found on her website.
