And now for a visual feast of festive tat. A collection of the odd and the bizarre, rendered in cheap plastic (or glass if you’re lucky).
You may have noticed that certain stores sell “wacky” Christmas baubles, gloriously garish and ridiculously random. Not the traditional seasonal balls here – we’ve wandered into distinctly abstract territory.
Whilst the groovy shops sell the strange tree trinkets for a tenner, other, less glamorous emporiums are knocking them out for a couple of quid. And bless ’em, these cheapo ones are usually even more ugly and weird.
Which is where I come in. As a genuine aficionado of the kitsch Christmas, I have collected some of these decorations from various sources. They are proudly displayed on our Christmas tree, and here I present them to you for your entertainment.
Enjoy these bad taste baubles, dear reader, and be inspired by the wondrous world of tat.
In the photos below you will see:
- A taco
- A guitar
- A cupcake
- Santa with a surfboard
- A pizza slice
- Some beer
- Peppers and an ice cream
- Another taco
- A VW Beetle
- A crown and a strawberry
- A VW camper van with a Christmas tree
- A crocodile in a UFO (my personal favourite)
I want a tattoo of the crocodile in a UFO – spectacular.
Hopefully you’ve enjoyed that trip into the low quality and down right strange.
I would like to wish all my readers a very Merry Christmas! Thank you for reading Platinum Al’s Virtual Hot Tub, your support is always appreciated.
