The Best of the Worst Christmas Decorations (TT # 33 )

It's the moment at least one or two of you have been waiting for. May I present to you: Christmas Displays that Should Not Have Been!

1. I've got to give Mandy props for leading me to this one. Doesn't it appear as if Santa is peeing on his sled?


2. Looks like someone took their child's ride-on toy and turned it into their lone Christmas decoration.


3. All the people have to stand outside the church because they're all much too tall to go through the church doors.


4. It's just not Christmas without animated flamingos under a palm tree. In Arkansas.


5. The haphazardly placed "star" lights in the tree blinked in such a way as to give an innocent bystander a seizure. From a distance, it looked like a giant snake wiggling in the tree.


6. This one had the makings of a nice display until they decided to go with one random blue bush.


7. That's right. There's an inflatable NASCAR race going on here. There goes the neighborhood! It's even better during the day when all the inflatables are lying in heaps on the ground. Looks like there's been some sort of North Pole massacre.


8. Someone remind me...was it a star or a multicolored disco ball that led people to Our Lord? This is at the same house as #7.


9. How ticked off do you figure the husband of this household is that he climbed all the way up on the roof to display some lighted reindeer only to find that one of the deer's head is burned out?


10. The front of this house almost spells out "HELP". The star reminded us of a pentacle. Not sure that's what they were going for.


11. You can't get the full impact of this one without a video, but the trees on the far left actually played music and the lights danced to them. Don't you know the neighbors love hearing them all night long?


12. These people said to themselves, "Forget Christmas lights! We'll just put a movie screen up in the front yard and play Frosty the Snowman for passers by. They're just a couple of houses down from #13.



13. Clark Griswold, eat your heart out! This one's so gaudy, it took three pictures and a sideways (couldn't figure out how to rotate it) video to capture it.

Some of those are really over the top!

I liked number one the best, although the Nascar one was classic! There is a statue of a little boy with a bag down the street and every time I pass that house, I think that little statue is peeing. He looks just like it!

I can't see anything in the last video but can hear a woman talking. I like most of these! I'll have to go out and explore some of my own.

Robin said...

I'm digging those pink flamingoes. That last house would give me nightmares for a month though.

Roth's Rudiments said...

Oh my. The last was was so gaudy. You really had to look to see the house. Awesome job and have a great TT. :)

Danielle said...

Can you imagine the power bill for #13?!

Those are great! The palm trees and flamingos really get me...when did that become Christmasy?

D Pop Tart said...

I wish I could get in my car and find this much holiday hideousness in my neighborhood :p

The peeing Santa was funny. But the flamingoes....loved 'em. I would love those myself (but for global warming, of course). 13 Extraordinary Winter scenes

Puts the "wonder" in Christmas

Beautiful lights o' Christmas. I did not get out this year to take my own photo's and post them as I did last year. So thanks for doing that.

13 is hideous.

Mandy said...

Awesome. You should send the peeing santa to uglychristmaslights.com. I tried to send them my photo, but it was too blurry for them to use. They wanted a clearer one.

That Santa that you videoed scared the wee wee out of me the second time we visited that house.

All of these are just so funny.
