Christmas is a time rife with merry traditions. Most families have very particular traditions that they like to revisit each year, however ridiculous or funny they may be.

For example, most parents would probably want to wait with their kids for a turn with Santa, like this dad who took adorable photos of his baby with Father Christmas himself.

Other families, like the Bergerons, prefer to take annual Christmas photos in which they pose in the silliest and most bizarre costumes.

Parents Mike and Laura have posted 12 years’ worth of awesome photos on Imgur for us all to see.

Many of their characters take us back two, three decades, and some even emulate famous works of American art, celebrities, and popular musicians.

Upon first glance, they might seem quite strange. But in the end, you’ll realize that they were created out of joyful holiday cheer!
