I used to joke that our Christmas Tree was the only one in the world that threatens you when you turn it on. My husband is a Star Wars fan, and our tree can sometimes have explode and shooting sounds from his various space ship ornaments.
I’m pretty much okay with that. I mean, you’ve gotta be a geek to marry a geek right?
Our tree is basically covered in unconventional ornaments, with a few standard Christmas Balls scattered between.
So this year I added to our unconventionality with thisAMC The Walking Dead – Daryl Dixon Ornament from Hallmark Its really no secret that I’m a huge Walking Dead fan, and like most female Walking Dead fans I am a fan of Daryl Dixon.
Or, as some of my other friends call him, “The greasy redneck.”
What can I say?
I was overwhelmed with excitement when I found out this ornament was a thing. Overwhelmed with disapointment when I tried to buy him, but he was sold out, and overwhelmed with excitement again when my husband surprised me with it a couple of days later. I had gotten my Darly Dixon Ornament After All!
The Big Bang Theory/Star Trek Cast Ornament is a slightly more conventional ornament, in that it is a round ball shape. It even has snow.
Oh, wait, that is stars…
Because it is the cast of the hit series Big Bang Theory, re-imagined as the crew members of the original Star Trek series. My husband, being both a Big Bang fan, AND a Star Trek fan, LOVED it. I knew that he would.
Another unconventional ornament added to our tree this year was this Star Wars – Holiday Darth Vader Ornament from Hallmark.
Not only is Darth Vader, the dark lord of the Sith, wearing a tie-fighter and Storm trooper Ugly Chirstmas Sweater, he also has on a cute red santa hat! And when you activate him he says holiday things like:
“I find your lack of gifts disturbing.”
“I wish you a Merry Sithmas”.
Yeah, and those are just three of our unconventional Christmas ornaments.
What kind of ornaments do you have on YOUR tree?
