Let’s face it, 2021 has been a pretty crappy year and not the sort of year that any normal Christmas tree decoration is going to manage to sum up. But luckily I have found ten festive tree decorations that perfectly sum up what a terrible year it has been. While most of these will simply make you smile, some you might want to actually buy and decorate your own tree with them…
2021 Dumpster Fire
While here in the UK we don’t call them dumpsters I do feel this still perfectly sums up the sort of year most of us have had. Yes, just when you thought it was a rubbish year someone sets fire to it, which is kind of how the year started with the Australian fire.
Santa Wearing a Facemask
While some people are still refusing to wear one most of us are wearing our facemasks quite happily, even Santa himself! It’s not like we are going to have normal Santas this year with kids sitting on his lap as he could be a contagion risk!
2021 Festive Elves
This decoration has it all, with a virus in the ‘0’ part of the year, elves with facemasks on, toilet roll and even some hand sanitiser to make sure those little elves are safe when they handle all the presents for the good boys and girls.
I get the feeling most of us are sick and tired of seeing hand sanitisers everywhere, so the last thing you want is one hanging from the tree, but if you want to munch on festive chocolate from that said tree you are going to have to scrub up those hands with some of it!
This year we have been introduced to some big names in the world of Virology and if you live in the US Dr Fauci will be one of those names. Love him or hate him he has been a big part of the year and probably deserves a place on all our Christmas trees.
While these novelty tree ornaments were not made to celebrate the year 2021 they do perfectly sum it up. They are sure to make the kids smile and if you can get enough of them you could turn your whole tree into a festive toilet.
You just knew someone had to make a tree ornament that would look like the virus itself. But I have to say this one is quite cute, in a weird sort of way, because no matter how cute it looks it has ruined the year.
My First Pandemic
Do you remember the years when you would give tree ornaments to newborns? My first Christmas is not going to sum it up this year, so my 1st Pandemic with a personalised name might be the way to go.
Covid Vaccine Christmas Ornament
Unless you are some weirdo conspiracy theorist you would most probably have had at least one of the Covid Vaccine jabs (I have had 2 and a booster!) So why not remind yourself of those dead-arm times with this festive tree ornament that simply tries to inject some fun into Christmas.
Trying to Put it Behind Us Christmas Ornament
I think this is what most of us are trying to do with high hopes for a better year ahead. Handmade with a little face mask hiding Santas rear, this perfectly sums up the year as well as many of our hopes and dreams for the next one.
