Every year as the holidays roll around, people go crazy trying to put together the perfect Christmas displays and Pinterest-worthy decor. But, sometimes, things don’t go quite as planned— and it ends up being hilarious.
Ahead of the holidays, Jimmy Fallon asked fans to share their decoration fails using the hashtag #DecorationFails and the submissions did not disappoint:
“My mom bought an artificial tree at a thrift store and when we put it up, the top half was missing. We decorated it anyway and called it, ‘The Christmas Bush.’“
“My parents thought it was festive to put a light-up Santa and Mrs. Claus in the yard, but I was PETRIFIED, thinking two old people were haunting our house.”
“My dad hid our Elf on the Shelf in the chandelier and half of his face melted off.”
“My grandma got drunk and accidentally knocked down the tree, then blamed it on “reverberations from the snowballs kids are throwing outside.”
“One year my dad put up a life-sized Nativity Scene in the front lawn. One morning he found a drunk guy sleeping in the hay under the baby Jesus.”
“When I first met my in-laws, I wore an ugly Christmas sweater to make myself seem more fun. I didn’t realize the reindeer on the sweater were getting it on. Set the bar real low.”
