For many, the holidays are a time spent with family — and that’s true no matter the family, as same-sex couples have taken to social media to share their favorite holiday portraits with their loved ones.

The matching jammies set off this shot with Santa taken in Atlanta, Georgia. Looking great, fellas!

Christmas came a bit early today. We spent our morning in court (for the best reason ever!). Sydney’s adoption was finalized this morning and we are now officially official! Members of both our families were there for the court proceedings. As you can see, Sydney was clearly bored with them and slept through most of it.😝 We celebrated at Hires (a Utah classic) after, which has accidentally become our go-to for family occasions. Happy Family Day, Sydney! Christmas is pretty great, but December 20 just might be our family’s new favorite holiday. . . . . . #adoption #adoptionrocks #adoptionjourney #husbands #gayswithkids #babygirl #cute #instagood #lgbtfamily #twodads #gayparents #gaydads #finalizationday #loveislove #lovemakesafamily #dads #dadlife #familyday #sleepybaby

These two dads got a very special present this Christmas, by finalizing the adoption of their child, Sydney. Their daughter might be tuckered out, but the dads’ smiles show nothing but pride.

The news you care about, reported on by the people who care about you:

I hope that sleigh has seatbelts, as this bunch went dashing through the snow with Santa for their holiday portrait.

The sleigh in the above photo could have used a bit more horsepower — and this Santa has just the ticket, posing with another lovely couple — Maura and Nikki — and their child, Maura, this holiday.

What better time than the holidays to break out matching onesies — and I’m sure their daughter, Ruby, feels right at home in their own one-piece!

These two moms, Pamela and Serina,  are ready for the holidays in their matching Santa hats, while their son Tristan sports reindeer anglers and a broad grin. May you find nothing but the best under your tree!

Baby Harrison may not be too thrilled, but it looks like the rest of the family had fun with Santa Claus at Disneyland this year.

This couple brought their four boys to a “Sensitive Santa” event, catering to autistic kids this holiday,

It’s all about the bow ties in this shot, as not even two adorable schnauzers can take the focus off these three dashing gents this holiday season.

Here’s a foursome who knows their way around the sweater racks! That gingerbread one in particular is eye catching: just don’t let Tucker Carlson or Tammy Bruce see it!

It’s far too warm in Australia for too much fur, so these dads spent their time with Santa in their shorts.

No snow in sight at this lovely outing to the park for these two dads and their son for their Christmas portrait. Bonus points for the plaid.

Here’s to the happiest of holidays to you and your family this holiday season!

Here’s how some celebrities are wishing you a happy holiday in really queer ways
