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.
