Nothing says holiday family get-together like a turkey shoot. Except for maybe this. Wondering what to inject? Got that covered.

Bikers meet Thomas Kinkade and it ain’t pretty

Filed under: Collectibles, holiday specials — Tags: , , , — readingwithscissors @ 9:58 am

Here’s a timeless holiday favorite:

  1. Three 3-D villages inside snowman’s belly: Check
  2. Vehicles that run around the snowman: Check
  3. It lights up: Check
  4. Won’t burn down your house: Check

Hey wait a minute! Something smells and it ain’t burnin’ rubber! The Kinkade mashup snowman seems a lot less special right now.

Marilyn Monroe Christmas Ornaments

Never forget what Christmas is about: Glitzy, glamorous, resin figures on polymer ornaments. And “The Seven Year Itch.” And “Some Like It Hot.” And after you hang Marilyn from your tree, put Animatronic Elvis under it.

Flameless candle

From the same people who brought us plastic glasses? Battery operated, adjustable fragrance, and it has its own Web site.

Christmas countdown lawn ornament

Because it’s so hard to keep track of just when Christmas is. Can also be used indoors.

Cubs sleigh ride to Hell

This is from last year, but of course, it’s timeless. As with every annual Cubs ornament, lump of coal free with purchase. You’ll enter this season in the “win” column. You’ll finish “elsewhere.”
