Ho ho ho! We’re now only a couple of days away from Christmas, and we hope you have been enjoying our coverage of the darker side of the holiday. We’ve showcased the scariest snowmen, spooky kids and twisted toys – and now it’s time for another favourite; the influx of terrifying decorations on store shelves this time of year.
Prepare for misshapen monsters, body horror, unsettling Santas and more, here’s a selection of the more frightening holiday decorations out there.
*Note* We’re picking decorations that we assume were not designed to be scary. There’s plenty of horror inspired products out there, but we’re focusing on the unpleasant disasters and general weirdness haunting trees around the world.
