Holiday atrocities? Oh yeah. This is the first year I’ve seen some horrific things at our usual Christmas tree lot, and I simply had to share. Because, well, they are pretty atrocious.
Well, it was bound to happen. Pink.
Pink is not a Christmas color.
Pink is for newborn baby girls.
An alternative to red for Valentine’s Day.
And it’s the color of baby pigs.
Yeah, I’d put caution cones up, too, if I had to have this tree.
Pink is not the color of a Christmas tree.
But if there’s pink, you KNOW they had to do blue.
I could see this little blue tree in the room of a newborn baby boy. One who was born Christmas week. But only Christmas week.
Otherwise, this tree should be burned.
When I saw this tree I had no fuc*ing idea what it was. I stared at it a very long time and still couldn’t figure it out. It’s just so…strange.
So I asked.
“It’s an Oakland Raiders tree gone bad,” our guy said. “It didn’t work out.”
Nope. It didn’t.
But here are some festive holiday decorations that DID work out.
We started doing this last year. I love it. They’re stars.
I love that they’re lit from within at night, too.
I would show you our Christmas tree, which was gorgeous. Until it fell over and we had to pronounce it dead for the season.
How about you? What holiday atrocities have you seen in your wanderings?
