Every year we look forward to the exciting decor and accessories that come along with the cheerful holiday season. Bright colorful lights, ornaments on trees, ugly sweaters and Santa’s elves and reindeer are just a few ways we show off being merry.
Even though these gifts come once a year we know there will always be some surprises – or should we say fails, along the way. We’ll explore some of the most hilarious holidays fails that will have you laughing out loud or cringing in amazement!
A Little Branch Off
Who doesn’t love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups? They are much more satisfying to eat during the holiday season when they are made into the shape of Christmas trees! Every year The Hershey company gets joyous and transforms the chocolate peanut butter goodness into festive trees!
However, after retrieving all of the goodies out of his stocking and excited to take a bite out of his treat; this jolly kid was crushed to see his chocolate surprise arrived without its signature branches. His tree ended up looking slightly less appetizing.
Thumbs Down Decor
Every year most families look forward to decorating the Christmas tree together with ornaments they have collected over the years. It’s a fun experience to create this beautiful scene as a family and all the ornaments around the tree are so unique.
Some represent figures and some are works of art. We came across this odd one which looks like someone got to chopping and lost the tip, of their thumb that is! What an interesting story to tell about this figurine.
To the Rescue
This is a devastating sight to see for Santa. It looks like all of his helpers have been taken down and people have rushed to the scene for help. However, it looks as if these assistants cannot be revived!
Only Rudolf with his nose so bright remains in flight. It’s a shocking scene to know what goes on at the mall when no one is around! Let’s hope these guys got these deer back in flight.
A Cheeky Holiday Cheer
Every year we look forward to the limited edition holiday drinks and festive cups from our favorite companies. Every year we are excited about the unique and delicious flavors that are offered in honor of the holiday season.
The cups are also different every year and often represent the comforting colors of the holidays with imagery representing the winter season. However, this company failed to realize that their mitten design was interpreted as different to some customers.
What Are You Saying?
What is going on here? We were trying to read this message for a few seconds before we finally figured it out. It appears that the letters are jumbled all over the place and the message if not clear.
This fail lit up the room with confusion all as looked on trying to solve this word puzzle in awe. We guess the phonetics does the job but it doesn’t really sound that great. Next year lets keep it simple so the light bulb (in our head) goes off easier.
Not So Silent Night
Angels singing is a common theme of the Christmas holiday and we love it! Figurines and candles are everywhere to help spread holiday cheer. But we can’t help but notice these particular candles are a little off.
There are plenty of alternative ways these figurines could have been designed but the decision was clearly made by someone who did not think through the final outcome. We are shaking our heads looking at these like, they are just wrong!
I’ve Fallen and I Can’t Get Up
During the holiday season, we all look forward to the amazing decorations at retailers and shopping malls. Big lighted trees are on display, tinsel, wreaths and Santa with his reindeer are meant to bring cheer while we shop for our friends and family.
However, this outdoor shopping area disappointed many with a shocking and sad sight; Rudolf has fallen and he can’t get up! This was the perfect fail for all to capture on their phones and share the story.
On the Naughty List
This is not the time of the year to misbehave as Santa is coming soon. It seems this pup got a little excited, and mom and dad came home to a toppled over Christmas tree and a guilty face.
This pup was so well behaved all year but he just couldn’t hide his excitement for the holiday season. We’ll guess this one bad decision bumped him to the naughty list this year.
Sending the Wrong Message
The holiday season is an exciting time, there’s no arguing that. We all try to pass on messages of cheer and joy. But sometimes how you say something can change the entire message.
We’ll guess drivers on this freeway were less than joyous to see this shocking out of place message with Santa looking like he was ready to jump for joy. Sadly off the bridge and into oncoming traffic, ouch!
Don’t Bother Opening
We all want to be surprised on Christmas morning; this is the whole point of wrapping gifts. This Christmas theme Ornament sure missed the point when they decided to reveal what they claim to be a surprise in a translucent package.
We’ll guess this predictable present wasn’t the best gift choice for the holiday season. It’s the fact that the surprise plush was looking right at us. We think it might be a better idea to wrap the entire bauble.
Connected for Life
We give this guy credit for decorating the warehouse of his business and sharing the merry holiday spirit. But we noticed this Rudolph and his inflatable reindeer buddies are an awkward sight to see.
There sure must have been a better way to keep these flying reindeer in an orderly line. The connected reindeer are bound for life in the most interesting way. A way that actually makes us cringe. We think these flying reindeers need a brake and are better off on the ground.
Get Down Right Meow!
Let’s face it, cats are curious animals. Some love to climb trees and they are often pretty sneaky and prefer to make moves while no one is looking. The dangling Santa ornament struck this cat’s interest. Little did she think we’d catch her in the act of climbing the Christmas tree.
This feline did manage to capture the hanging figure; so we can now confirm she was getting some licking satisfaction. That innocent face is only trying to convince us not to put her on the naughty list.
Need Some Help with That?
There’s always someone out there that wants to modify or disrupt a good thing; a Merry Christmas message to all. Now you could be giving off the wrong message to all the people in your neighborhood and it’s downright embarrassing.
Santa probably wants to steer clear of this house after this descriptive message. And we can guess that the neighbors are laughing with every pass by the house. This prankster sure brought joy this holiday season. We wonder if the homeowners have noticed yet.
A Mouse in the House
Believe it or not, these taxidermied mice dressed in holiday decor are a thing! Yes, a real stuffed mouse! We are not sure why someone would think this is cute or even festive, we think it’s downright creepy.
This is the perfect oddity is for the weirdos out there and we must say this is an absolute fail as it might hysterically amuse your cat. Let’s also hope if you choose to display this not so normal figurine, that it’s not mistaken for a toy!
Not Such an Angel Face
We were confused by this holiday decor as it looks like something straight out of a horror movie. This angel ornament has anything but an angel face and reminds us of something more demonic.
We understand the intention is good but by the look of this, we just want to run and hide. This face can only be seen as super creepy and don’t recommend adding this sweet little angel as a decoration on your cherry holiday tree.
A Decorative Yet Functional Device
This festive decoration for any toilet will spice up the room, this plunger helps keep holiday cheer no matter what the bathroom situation. Now you can plunge with a merry spirit.
You can DIY by using an existing plunger and glue on branches and add your own ornaments or you can purchase as is online. Either way, you are sure to make your guests smile or hope they don’t actually need to use the plunger as it would probably disrupt this decorative design.
A Reindeer Needs to Eat
These creative homeowners took an alternative route when it comes to decorating their houses with holiday lights. They decorated with Santa’s reindeers in mind. We can imagine with all the flying around they do a reindeer needs to eat too!
While its common practice to prepare milk and cookies for Ol’ Saint Nick this gesture takes things to a whole new level. This is no question a holiday fail despite the thinking outside of the box. We wouldn’t recommend this idea although they were definitely thinking outside of the box.
Ho-ping This Is an Innocent Joke
This family took sarcasm to the next level for their holiday card and its just wrong in every way. We can’t fathom why the ladies went along with it. We can understand the family is only trying to spread cheer.
This move was an absolute fail in the eyes of every witness, leaving many shocked in disbelief. Next time we’ll suggest dad dress in a Santa costume instead of a tasteless shirt!
An Awkward Reminder
This is an actual statue in the Netherlands with Santa holding a Christmas tree and bell to remind us all that the holiday has arrived. But the illusion of the shapes portraying a festive tree appear a little off…
We’re not sure how some tourists reacted to this fail. We’re hoping not too many posed for selfies with this awkward Santa figure. But we’re laughing all the way as we walk by this hilarious fail.
Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing
This wannabe Santa Clause tried to recreate a sled with presents and reindeer! Although much creativity and effort were used in the making of this mechanism; we cringed at the sight of his DIY creation.
For some reason, this sunglass wearing impersonator decided to incorporate the most realistic reindeers of them all. Even though he is seen delivering presents and spreading joy, we see all the kids running in fear!
A Sleigh Ride
Everyone knows Santa gets around town on a sleigh and that his reindeer friends lead the way with their amazing flying skills. It’s common to see plush Santa figures at every retailer around the holidays.
Santa with his reindeer on his sleigh is the perfect way to let everyone know that jolly Saint Nick is on his way! However, this toy manufacturer made the design a little awkward for our taste, not sure if we’ll be taking this one home.
The Truth Spelled Out
This conspiracy theorist wanted to share his opinion with fellow shoppers during the holiday season. These customized stockings are made for just about anyone with an initial from the English language.
These many letters can lead to some pretty funny and unpredictable outcomes. We’ll guess most people walked by not reading the message that was shown and were only looking for the letter of their first name.
Very Merry Lights Display
We can’t believe a lighting device such as this exists in a purely innocent way! These merry lights featuring holly and lit candlesticks lined the edges of a highway for the holidays.
This cheerful scene must have been hilarious for all that witnessed the jolly bright lights while driving along the dark highway this holiday season. These drivers were laughing all the way while singing “Deck the Balls.”
