First off, I want to show you how dedicated we are to our loyal readers:
Here’s Deb, in her wheelchair, with her giant boots, just ten days after her (elective) foot surgery. She made a great shopping cart, and we still had a blast. We decided that if anyone got in our way, she was going to stick out those boots and become a battering ram. The Britney Spears poster was really not going home with us, but it made for a funny photo, and we do have to admit that the rest of the stuff on her lap did make the trip to our respective abodes.
Now that the personal stuff is out of the way, on to the post. Christmas shows many faces to the world, and not all of them are pretty. In this post, we have a few real losers that made it onto our lists, and shouldn’t deck anyone’s halls.
Santa has been very naughty this year, and left all the work to his elves and Mrs. Claus:
We know this Santa has had to spend some time in the chair to get this “do”:
There is enough facial hair there for a couple of cockapoos with some left over. He actually does look a little doggie-like. I am beginning to think we need a whole category for macrame fantasies, as you name it, I guess someone, somewhere, macrame-ed it.
Now this felt Santa is actually tipping over the edge into cute:
What really got us here is the packaging. We don’t know why, but you leave some old decoration in its original packaging, and we go crazy over it. Must have something to do with that romancing of “better” days. Anyone who has read our blog for a while, knows we don’t really buy it, but the ads sure do a fine job selling that bill of goods.
Here is some more fun packaging:
We loved that it was all still there, even down to the alternative “flames” for use at Christmas. I don’t know why the red and green ones were not considered Christmasy. Do you use those for Thanksgiving, or maybe Easter?
Here is another terrifying face of Christmas:
What is this? A moldy Mr. Potato Head? A snowman who survived a massive sand storm? Whatever it is, festive is just not a word I would use to describe it. Maybe if you hid it behind the tree you could stand to have it around. And it had better be a really big tree, so not even a glimpse could be seen. It could make Santa reconsider that coal.
Could be worse; could be the Merry Christmas Pig:
Because nothing says Christmas like a porker with fur. If the side view wouldn’t scare Ebenezer Scrooge into buying a Christmas Goose for Tiny Tim, the front would have him trembling in his nighty:
After the porcine phantasm, you deserve to be left with something cute. How about this fold-out Christmas card holder?
Even more Christmas coming next week. Head over to our Facebook page this week for a fun Christmas giveaway.
