According to the Urban Dictionary bershon is the irritated expression made when you’re 13 and your parents force you to wear a Christmas sweater and pose for a family portrait. Basically, it’s looking miserable during a normally cheery time. Bershon can be seen in images through the centuries, it’s ageless, but is most commonly recorded during the teen years. Most photographs capturing bershon are during birthdays, holidays, family vacations and graduations—times when you’re supposed to be joyful but all you feel is pain. Thankfully mother is there to take your pic and immortalize misery. Gah!
