The California family that is known for their silly Christmas cards has released its 2017 edition - poking fun at smug people enjoying festive vacations(Imgur)

For more than a decade straight, Mike Bergeron and his wife Laura, from the US, have taken their annual holiday cards to a whole new level, posing in hilariously wacky, yet somehow still awesome outfits.

The trend continued with the couple, and their children Gigi and Laura, “trying to look like different people” each year. Now, the California family that is known for their silly Christmas cards has released its 2017 edition - poking fun at smug people enjoying festive vacations.

Captioned ‘Gingers in Paradise’, the family described its photo as, “We went in a slightly different direction this year, which required stepping out of the JCP Portrait Studio and using a photographer (big thanks to Marco Montenegro) at the local beach. This our nod to the ever-so-popular holiday card theme that says “Look at us soaking up the sun’s rays in a beautiful tropical paradise while you’re freezing your nuts off…don’t you wish you were us?” Merry Xmas everyone :)”

“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 of the inspiration for their first funny card in 2003.

“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.

In the 2008 card, the couple donned the traditional ensembles worn by the Hare Krishna monks - and even paid homage to the religious sect in their Christmas greeting.

This card is their first effort, which was taken during the holidays in 2003.

While in 2013 they went for a dance-inspired theme...
