“It turns out people who didn’t even know us started loving the cards.”
It’s the time of year when mailboxes across the world are stuffed with holiday cards. Our social media feeds will soon be filled with slideshows of awkward family photos and hilarious year-end recap letters.
The Bergeron family of Aliso Viejo, California, has had fun with the holiday tradition by taking their holiday card photos in intentionally wacky outfits for the last 13 years.
“On the internet, you see there will be posts of Christmas cards gone wrong, where it’s just a bunch of unintentionally funny Christmas cards,” Mike Bergeron told ABC News. “And you know when you see those, you think to yourself, ‘Boy I wish I had one of those to hang on my fridge so when friends come over they’ll get a kick out of it.’ So we got the idea to intentionally make funny Christmas cards to give to all our friends and family, and after a while, it turns out people who didn’t even know us started loving the cards,” he said.
