Merry Christmas and happy holidays from the Martins!

That’s the message Matt Martin is definitely giving off on Instagram. In traditional family photo style, he’s got himself, his wife, and Santa Claus, as well as his son, who is apparently Mitch Marner.

Honestly, they actually look related in this. Maybe it’s the similar smiles. I don’t know, but it’s amazing.

Besides, it’s not like Marner doesn’t perfectly fill the role of the teenage son, especially considering how he’s, you know, still a teenager. (A teenager with 25 points in 33 NHL games, oh my.) And riding a little polar bear! I’m going to assume his name is Carlton.

What a wonderful family.
