There are awkward Christmas photos, and then there are spoofs of awkward Christmas photos. And then there are Christmas photos that are awkward because people are pretending they are spoofs but are really, really enjoying them too much.

The Vancouver Canucks fall into the final category. They donned the worst Christmas sweaters they could find and posed for some funny photos, but, judging from the results, what was meant to be a mockery might have been loved a little too much by some of those involved (ahem, Roberto Luongo).

Check out the funny shoot in the photos below.
