The Weirdest Christmas Ornaments To Make Your Tree Blush

It’s early December, which means if you haven’t already bought a Christmas tree, it’s time to head out to the local store and bring one home. If you haven’t already bought yourself some horrifyingly strange ornaments to go on your tree, fret not, we have a great collection of the weirdest, funniest and scariest Christmas tree ornaments around and there’s still plenty of time to order and get them on your tree before the holidays.

Flying Spaghetti Monster Ornament

Do you love the interwebz? Could you write a book on all the best memes of the last three years? Then the flying spaghetti monster Christmas ornament is for you. Of course, if you’re buying this, then you’d better not mind the fact that it is sending out conflicting messages about your beliefs in the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster and Christianity. In fact, you may want to go ahead and go another step towards confusing your religious beliefs and buy yourself a menorah ornament as well. (Update: The link for this is no longer available.)

Fetuse Ornaments

Whether you’re obsessively prolife or a major fan of dead baby jokes, you’re certain to be happy with the array of embryonic ornaments available this year. The pewter fetus ornament is courtesy of the Flaming Lips and is even detailed with the band’s name and the year you bought it because nothing says “keepsake” like a shiny unborn baby.

Of course, if you like your babies to come out of the womb patriotically strapped, then the fetus with a gun and an array of military equipment is destined to help fill the gaping hole in your conservative heart tree.


If, on the other hand, you’re a huge fan of science and have been keeping an eye on the glow-in-the-dark animals that have been born in the past year, then the glow-in-the-dark embryo ornament is the closest thing to the future of glowing humans. This is also a great choice for anyone suffering from radiation poisoning, obsessed with comic book super heroes or people who just wish they could have been born at raves.

Unfortunate listing undermines good cause

Finding the Bigfoot and Yeti ornaments, which we give to those who donate to the International Cryptozoology Museum, on this rather unnerving list was quite disturbing. Then to see that you undermined the efforts of Boing Boing's good story about us (to which you linked) by sending people elsewhere to pick up these ornaments, instead of to us for our fundraiser, was unfortunate.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you!

RE: Unfortunate listing undermines good cause

Hi Loren,

I just wanted to let you know that we only linked to Amazon so those who are interested can find an easy place to buy them, since they are no longer avilible through the link featured on Boing Boing. If you add them to an easy to use shop, I'll be happy to direct the buyers there.

I am a fan of yours though and just recently wrote a post that will show up on Mental Floss this week that links to your long and fascinating interview also on Boing Boing. I hope that makes up for the problems you see with the post.

Thank you for reading,

Funny, no harm

Hi, Jill

Your column is fun and funny. No harm done; the link should still work at Boing Boing.

Oh well, what would the day be without interweb problems/foolishness.

Best wishes,
