Shortly after we stuffed our faces with turkey and finished watching the "Macy's Thanksgiving Parade," we started prepping for Christmas. This meant dusting off the Christmas tree, fluffing out the branches, and digging through boxes for tinsels, ornaments and nativity scenes. But not everyone is excited about decorating as others. Some folks are actually feeling a bit lazy as Christmas approaches. So to those of you have aren't in the mood to decorate, we salute you with some of the most genius, but super lazy Christmas decorations ever. So, if you thought you were alone feeling like a lazy holiday decorator, then guess again.
#1. Some holiday decorations are so lazy that they can leave you hanging in front of your neighbors.
Check this one out! It's not a real person of course, but it was real enough to get some neighbors to call 9-1-1. Sadly, the homeowners had no choice but to take the man hanging from the side of the house, down. Party poopers!
#2. So many of us love putting ornaments up on our Christmas tree, but hate taking them down.
Now, this is how you taking wrapping to a whole new level during Christmas. With a bit of Saran wrap, you can ensure that all of your ornaments and tinsels stay right where they are. And next year, all you have to do is unwrap and fluff the tree.
#3. Sure, it's all fun celebrating a white Christmas when it's actually cold and snowing in December.
Unfortunately, when you live in the southern hemisphere like in Australia, the summer is in full bloom during the holidays, so the only tree you're likely to see is a nice fan trying to keep the whole family cool.
#4. When celebrating the birth of Christ, you can always go for a more minimalistic approach.
It is a celebration of his birth for Christ's sake, no pun intended. Also, think of all the money this family saved on decorations simply by using a Happy Birthday banner from their kid's last birthday party. Awesome!
#5. There's always one house in the neighborhood that acts like a lighthouse beacon for Santa.
Then there's the family who would rather not spend so much time doing so much to make their house look so lit! Besides, can you guess whose light bill is going to be higher next month? Spoiler, it's the one on the left.
#6. When your kids are bugging you to help them build a snowman outside, but you don't want to.
This alternative is very doorsy, and at least you don't have to worry about heat melting Frosty away. It's simply a-door-able, and because it's the entry door, your guests can snow themselves out after the party's over.
#7. Do you ever wonder why parents are always buying stuff for kids instead of Santa Claus bringing gifts?
It looks like the years have not been kind to Santa. Then again, delivering presents to every child around the world would take its toll on anyone. So, in this person's home, Christmas decorations are looking more like "A Nightmare Before Christmas."
#8. When you'd rather not put up a lot of Christmas lights, but don't want people asking you why.
At least the scene is pretty obvious. You don't have to explain to your neighbors why you don't have any Christmas lights outside your house because obviously, "The Grinch Stole Christmas" and all of your decorations too.
#9. When you're just not up for it, you can always repurpose your old Halloween decorations.
Unfortunately, by repurposing your creepy butler statue into a Santa, you'll probably wind up getting everyone, kids and grown-ups to poop their jammies. We certainly wouldn't want to run into this guy in the middle of the night.
#10. Why take the Christmas tree out of the box when you know you're going to have to put it back in?
We love this idea. You're better off just decorating the cardboard box, which was made out of paper, which came from trees. So, technically, it's still a Christmas tree. Problem solved. Now where's the eggnog?
#11. This is actually quite a clever way to decorate a sterile, Clorox scented hospital during the holidays.
Whoever looked at a bunch of crutches and thought of turning them into reindeer legs, deserves a hand. Plus, they get kudos for making a reindeer body out of paper bags, while trying to help patients out at a busy hospital.
#12. To the rest of us this might seem extremely lazy, but fortunately, this kid is completely fooled.
Since children have a great imagination, you can disguise a wall by making a tree outline and they'll be oh-so happy. The kid looks so happy, so it's a win-win. Also, think about how easy it'll be to clean up after the 25th.
#13. It's really not the size that matters, it's how you use it to celebrate the holidays this year.
You certainly can't deny that it's a Christmas tree, and there's plenty of space to place presents around it. Oh, and you only need a few presents to decorate it, cause it's so small. But it's still pretty tasteful for the holidays.
#14. Sure, the holidays are a time to be jolly, but not everyone feels like making a big stink of it.
This Christmas light decoration says it all. There's no need to ask how this family feels about the holidays. We're sure it'll also serve as a deterrent for Christmas carolers this season. So have yourself a Merry little Christmeh!
#15. If you're allergic to pine trees, or don't feel like buying one, then this alternative is just as cool.
It's under $5, smells like pine, and will keep your house fresh. What more do you want this Christmas? Oh, okay, so you can't add any ornaments, but look at all the space you have to pile up those Christmas presents?
#16. When you've got a bunch of laundry leftover from the summer, turn it into a Christmas tree.
Since you probably don't need any of these summer clothes, cause it's winter, you can turn it into a laundry Christmas tree. It looks just as pretty, but you might want to Febreze it so it doesn't stink up the house.
#17. This might look like the crappiest tree in the world, but it's actually a celebrity tree that you'll love.
This tree is a replica of the tree seen in the 1965 short film "A Charlie Brown Christmas," which they recently aired like they do every year. So why not celebrate like Charlie Brown and put this sad twig up on your kitchen counter?
#18. So it looks like Santa might not be making it to Christmas, but Jack Skellington might show up.
There's no bones about it… this is better than chopping up a live tree. Plus, look how Christmassy that skeleton looks with the Christmas lights illuminating it from head to toe. Now that's the kind of lazy decoration that's bone chilling.
