If you’re anything like me, you’re probably stuffing your dog into a holiday sweater as we speak and plopping your four-legged friend in front of a Christmas tree to create a holiday card of epic proportions. (No? Just me?) But it’s common knowledge that some Christmas photos are a cut above the rest. (Like the ones that have wiener dogs in them. It’s science.)
In any case, this couple knows a thing or two about taking amazing holiday photos. While some people pose in white sweaters in front of gorgeously decorated trees, this pair likes to go a more…eccentric route. The resulting cards are the stuff of Christmas legend.
These two have been slaying the card game for 12 years now, so Mike — the mustached wonder in the photo below — took to Reddit to share their artistry with the world.

Nowadays, they get their kids (and their epically bad mutton chops) involved.

Hey, this is cute! Hold up.
Now that my dog is looking at me like I’ve just ruined her life, I’m starting to think that I should just let her get out of that sweater and slap on a mullet wig myself. Judging by these photos, that’s the only way to capture the joy of the holidays.
