Christmas is a time of giving, love, and laughter. But what happens when a bunch of boneheads get together to celebrate the holiday? That’s right, epic fails! After scouring the web for some of the weirdest examples of holiday cheer, we compiled a list of 11 hilarious Christmas fails. And don’t worry I made sure everything is SFW (“Safe for Work”).
11. Wrapped Cat
Regardless of age, presents are perhaps the best part of Christmas, but it can get expensive quickly. So how can you save money on your holiday shopping? Well, if you’re frugal you can be like this genius—wrap little Mittens in holiday wrapping, place a ribbon on his head, and call it good. It sure beats spending a fortune on diamond earrings for the wife and a PS4 for the kid.
10. Ladder Christmas Tree
Hey! You’re doing it wrong! You’re supposed to decorate a tree, not your folding ladder. This is perhaps the most redneck Christmas tree ever—you’ve got a bowling ball tree topper, a film reel, and what appears to be someone’s shoe. What’s not to like?
9. Popcorn Tins
If the sale is two for $10 and the regular price is $5… Yeah, this person is clearly bad with numbers. Chances are this is just a simple oversight, but it’s much more fun to think it’s a genuine error. Maybe someone should get this employee a math tutor for Christmas.
8. Dear Santa…
Now this is dedication, folks. Can you imagine how tedious it must have been for this poor kid to write down every letter, number, and underscore? Plus, he used a crayon! Those dull-tipped bundles of wax are terrible for writing, not to mention they break under the slightest pressure. Needless to say if this isn’t good enough to clear your name from Santa’s “Naughty List,” then we’re all getting lumps of coal in our stockings.
Oh, and some Reddit users (who clearly have a lot of time on their hands) went to the URL, which apparently leads to a whale-shaped remote controlled car.
7. All I want for Christmas…
Hmm… seems legit. After all, it’s “the season to be merry,” so there’s no point staying in a marriage if you’re unhappy. On the other hand, telling your spouse that you want a divorce by defacing your own car with this humiliating message may be a bit harsh even for the world’s worst relationship. But maybe not…
It can feel a bit discouraging when your neighbor goes above and beyond with his Christmas decorations. Take a look at this Clark Griswold wannabe with his fancy holiday lights and cute lawn ornaments. How could you follow this act? The guy next door clearly knows he can’t compete.
5. Christmas Tattoos
These have failure written all over it. Why is Yoda wearing a Santa outfit? And is that old St. Nick depicted as a monkey? Yeah, we don’t get it either.
4. Holiday Car Decorations
Some may argue that this is a win, but it sure seems a bit excessive. Most people just put antlers on their windows and a red nose on their front bumper, but this avid Christmas-lover took his holiday car decorations to the next level. With a reindeer on the roof and colorful lights, there’s no way you could miss this Christmas fail driving down the street.
3. Dumpster Diving
Desperate times call for desperate measures. I’m sure little Timmy won’t mind that Santa brought him a broken stapler and a cardboard box from the dumpster. Besides, kids have to learn that beggars can’t be choosers.
2. Best Holiday Family Portrait
Where do I begin with this one? You’ve got ugly Christmas sweaters, an overweight dog, and a baby doll (which I can only assume he pried from the hands of some teary-eyed girl). This photo makes absolutely no sense, but it certainly makes for a great laugh.
1. Christmas Survey
This is just sad. How is that five and seven year-olds can identify Simon Cowell but they don’t know Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer? I think it’s safe to say that these parents and teachers should be ashamed of themselves.
