Twelve years ago, Mike and Laura Bergeron of Aliso Viejo, California took up the tradition of creating holiday greetings that would be sure to get a laugh out of pretty much anyone they send it to. The husband and wife team have been dressing up each year and going to JCPenney to have their cards made. The reactions they’ve had from JCPenney employees and recipients of the cards were so great, they just kept it going… and going… and going.
It all started with this 1980’s themed card. Seriously, a thinning, hair-plugged hairline and fake mustache have never looked so suave.
After that, the trend was set. As Mike said, “I have always given Christmas gifts to everyone that I’m close to, so by the time I turned 30 it was getting pretty difficult to find ways to express to the people that I love that they are important to me through some small gift.”
