The Holidays are a time for family, fresh baked cookies and of course, awkward family Christmas cards. But one Michigan college student has taken the concept to a new level.
Looking to "baffle his aunts, uncles and especially grandparents," Joshua Brassow decided to splurge on professionally-photographed Christmas cards this year — with a fake family.
Brassow first took to Cragslist to hire his "wife" and "kids," offering $20 apiece and free copies of photos.
After picking his family, Brassow dressed them in traditional Christmas garb — turtlenecks, ugly sweaters and Santa hats — and paid a photographer $50 for photos.
Wanted to do this for years. Finally took the initiative to give the world the Christmas card it deserves... pic.twitter.com/5aTS6W6W9S

Here's to wishing Josh, "Bone-Crusher," "Blade" and "Thor" a very Happy Holiday.
