Hideous Christmas tree ornaments

Does anyone else fucking hate Christmas ornaments that are of TV characters? Or food items? How tacky and trashy.

Growing up I was fortunate to have a father who loved Christmas (the only time the bastard was happy). We had some quite nice ornaments. We also had a bizarre one of "Fozzie Bear" from the Muppets. Someone gave it to us. Whenever I put it up I felt like the rest of the ornaments were shrinking back in mild protest. It was cute in a strange way, but the truth was it was horribly tacky. I don't like ones of donuts (which I've seen). I'm not sure why Christmas shrieks DONUT, exactly.

I find the overuse of ribbons and overstuffing of the tree a crime against good taste

Alaska Airlines ought to makes Christmas tree ornaments with their filthy bible quotes and hand them out to First Class passengers from Thanksgiving Day to new year's day. Sort of along the same lines that KLM hands out Delft houses to its biz class passengers year round.

My grandparents had this one really old Christmas bulb, basically a decorative carved out silver sphere. But inside of it was a speaker that would continuously make loud bird chirping noises. Because it was connected to all the other chains of lights on the tree, it would come on every time they turned the tree on. There was no "off" button on it. It was absolutely maddening.

R2, I hear you on the nautical themed Christmas trees. I worked at a Pat Catan's (Now owned by Michaels) back in the 90's and one of the employees there decorated one of the display trees like this. Starfish, sea shells, mini boats, fish, boat rope, anchors, etc... We're in freaking Ohio, there's no beaches or oceans shores anywhere around here.

My grandparents has a small set of fruit ornaments, that included a bunch of grapes and a slice of watermelon (don't really remember the others). I loved them.

I always imagine those who use the terms “tacky” and “trashy” as themselves being tacky and trashy.

I enjoy a complete mix from extreme tackiness, to home made bizzarities, to the ne plus ultra of luxury and refinement.
