“The Night Before Christmas” was first published nearly two centuries ago in 1823. It shaped the conception of Santa Claus and set the tone for many Christmases to come. When you think about Christmas that way, you realize that the way we celebrate Christmas now isn’t all that different from the way our parents and even grandparents celebrated back when they were kids– the stockings, the decorations, the carols, and the brightly colored packages underneath the Christmas tree. It’s what’s in those packages that has changed throughout the years. And it has changed a lot. Check out this list to see some of the best and weirdest Christmas toys from the past 50 or years.
