This Family's Annual Card Tradition Shows How To Win At Christmas.
Christmas is the season to be jolly, sing seasonal carols, let go of past resentments, and write extremely awkward Christmas cards! I mean, you could stick to a regular card that portrays the spirit of generosity and goodness that’s associated to the holiday, sure. But if you want to stand out this year, then take note from this hilarious family that found a way to keep it real, (as in, REAL AWKWARD!) for 13 years.
Meet the Bergerons, a lovely family who loves dressing up for the holidays, so much so, that their most recent 2016 photo got more than 340,000 views online. One look at their hilariously weird Christmas cards, and you’ll understand why this family has been breaking the internet for more than a decade.
Laura and Mike Bergeron have been keeping their families entertained for years.
Thirteen, to be more precise! They’ve been the life of the party each year, as they try on new costumes and find new ways to make everyone giggle at their hilariously awkward Christmas cards.
But the Aliso Viejo, California couple is committed to take it to the next level, year after year.
In 2004, they came up with a pretty trashy rendition of what they’d look like if they loved fireworks, smokes and booze, even though Laura was pregnant. Fortunately, it’s just for kicks! Laura wasn’t really pregnant in 2004. Phew!
Over the course of the years, finding a way to express their love for the family was becoming harder and harder.
Particularly because Mike had always given his family and close friends special gifts that represented how much he cared about them. After he turned 30, finding a way to show his affection became increasingly hard, so he started thinking of other ways to surprise them.
In 2006, they took it to new awkward levels by staring in a photoshoot that depicted them as a couple of dweebs.
Needless to say, the card was a massive success with their relatives, and the couple found a new way to share some joy with the people they love. After all, giving someone an object and expecting it to be meaningful kind of gets old after a few years, don’t you think?
A goofy Christmas card is a hundred times more meaningful, particularly because it takes a lot of planning.
The hilariously awkward duo’s card is a gift that keeps on giving, as the family is cheerfully expecting and anticipating what they’re going to dress up as each year. And after pulling off some of the most bizarre Christmas cards each year you’d expect them to run out of ideas pretty fast. But not the Bergerons!
