Kelly Clarkson struck Internet gold yesterday when she Tweeted her family's awkward Christmas photo with new husband Brandon Blackstock and stepchildren Savannah and Seth.

But there's another celebrity holiday card that may be even more awkward, and we'd like to shed some light on it.

American Pie actress Suvari posted this photo to Instagram on Monday, and upon first glance, all we can think is maybe she found some inspiration in Miley Cyrus's American Music Awards performance last month. The star's cat, Blanca, appears front and center in the pic, floating above her and boyfriend Sal Sanchez much like Cyrus's infamous lip-syncing feline.

But the couple makes their own statement by sitting on the sofa sporting identical sweaters with nutcracker embroidery. The real Blanca joins them, helping create a Christmas image we doubt anyone will soon forget. Perhaps that's what Suvari wanted for Christmas all along.
