… How lovely is your plastic?
This time of year it is very important to honor our Christmas traditions. The Christmas Rooster, angel figurines and, of course, the Christmas Pug.
What is a Christmas Child? I honestly do not know.
And what does Mardi Gras have to do with any of that?
But let me use this opportunity to point out a situation in our society that is getting out of hand. Hundreds and hundreds of Scandinavian gnomes seem to get kidnapped for the festive season and I demand that you don’t shed a blind eye on this!
Your buying decisions shape our future. Don’t be a meany this Christmas. Shop what you need.
I may not need a Christmas Pug but I’m tempted to get the alligator …
What do you fancy?
Merry Christmas — Happy Holidays!?!

Sadly all this kinda crap will end up in landfill or polluting the seas or rivers of the world. Yet another great environmental success story for the human race!
Sad but true! Makes one proud, doesn’t it?
I wrote about this ages ago! You might like it
Oh man, I am grateful for my taste -thanks for reminding me. 🙂
Please stick to your taste!
Promised! You find the funniest things, the crocodile was too much. Happy Thanksgiving.
I like the twist to the carol ‘Oh Christmas Tree’ 🙂
My favourites are the Rooster and the Alligator. Yikes, the babies are pretty creepy! We’ve had the same decorations for a while now, mostly made from recycled enviro-friendly materials meant to be kept.
My grandparents were using the same paper and card decorations from the 1950s every Christmas.
How we all have come a long way. My mom used to do the tree with Lametta and each year it was carefully put away again, nice and flat. She also kept the wrapping paper. I giggled about that years ago, with the ever rising trash factor it’s really not that funny anymore.
We just put the presents in a potato sack. Looks like Santa brought it, reuse every year 😉
That’s funny about the lametta, as my mom had that too, and was careful to put it away each time ready for next Christmas.
Excellent idea about the potato sack! 🙂
I can’t believe I have an opinion on Lametta! The lead kind may have been worth saving, according to my mum. Not like the new stuff. At least she didn’t iron it ..
I’d completely forgotten about Lametta until you mentioned it.
The alligator is quite interesting. And the gnomes, of course! As I celebrate Winter Solstice, I only use completely recyclable mistletoe, pine and holly. 🙂
That sounds lovely. Enjoy your celebrations! 💚
Chaplin: “Say, those fuzzy gnomes look an awful lot like Substitute Charlee!”
Charlee: “There is no substitute for the actual Charlee.”
Chaplin: “So you would have wanted to be in the ICU with Dada where Substitute Charlee was, then?”
Charlee: “….. There is ONE substitute for the actual Charlee.”
Oh guys, if you look closely, there is at least one cat trapped in a snow dome. Be careful guys! (And they tell you Halloween was dangerous.)
I should be grumpy with you for giving me an earworm with those opening lines. If I wake up in the middle of the night with those words in my head, there’s no telling what I’ll do! 😂
Oh I’m sorry Tracy! Sometimes it helps to just song the song to get rid off that worm. Maybe add a few lines?!?
Good news….that little ditty didn’t lodge in my head. No worries! 🙂
I’ll have the deer please – I do have some plastic decorations – at least they’re vintage and I can tell myself I’m recycling x
Oh, I have one rule around here. Only one new Christmas decoration each year. It’s hard …
