13 Legitimately Awful Christmas Presents You Should Never Give, Ever

13 Legitimately Awful Christmas Presents You Should Never Give, Ever

Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals.

After seeing article after article about what to get people for Christmas, I decided it would be fun to write the exact opposite. So here is a list of horrible Christmas presents, thought up by yours truly :)

I wouldn't wish these presents upon my greatest enemies... OK, maybe a few people.

Merry Christmas.

1. All the "Shrek" movies, but in Russian

2. A tooth tunes toothbrush

Merry Christmas. I got you a toothbrush that sings "All Star" while you brush your teeth.

(This present would go perfectly with the Shrek movie series!!!)

3. A baseball hat with Dick Wolf's name on it

"And these are their stories" *DUH-Dun*

4. The Bee Movie soundtrack on vinyl

5. A pamphlet on mesothelioma

Something for you or a loved one.

6. A bed comforter with the cast of Jersey Shore on it

Classiest group of individuals that have ever walked among us.

7. A plethora of VHS tapes

RIP to these retro rectangles. A perfect present for your least favorite millennial since they will most likely have no clue what this is.

8. Kermit the Frog-inspired jewelry

Why is this even a real thing??

9. A giant cut-out poster of Ted Cruz

I couldn't find a not terrifying gif of Ted Cruz, so here's Kevin from the Office. Basically the same person, right?

10. Anything Nickelback

Wow, this is truly the meanest/best insult I have ever heard.

11. A collage of their cringy middle school pictures

^ ^ ^ Genuine cringey middle school pictures.

Not to be dramatic but if someone gave me this for Christmas I'd probably flee the country just out of sheer embarrassment.

12. Heelys but with no wheels

That's just taking it too far. Absolutely heartless.

13. A 30-hour recording of Bill Clinton's famous line:

15 Fourth Of July Fun Facts And Trivia

The United States of America: Land of the free, home of the brave.

Fourth of July is a holiday I look forward to every year! Full of outside, summer fun, barbecued foods, and firework displays. Behind all of that, however, is history! In celebration of our nation's Independence Day, here are 15 fun facts and pieces of trivia:

1. John Hancock was the only member of the Continental Congress to formally sign the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776.

2. The Fourth of July was not declared a federal holiday until 1938.

3. The first White House Fourth of July party was held in 1804.

4. Around 150 million hot dogs are consumed on Fourth of July (wonder if this statistic includes the hot dogs consumed during the annual Nathan's Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest?)

5. Back in 1776, when the Declaration of Independence was signed, 2.5 million new people lived in the U.S. Now 240 years later, 311 million people live.

6. The now American-celebrated song, Yankee Doodle, was originally written by officers of the British army to make fun of backwoods Americans.

7. Three United States presidents died on the Fourth of July: John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Monroe.

8. July 4th is also celebrated in the Philippines, because in 1946, the country was recognized as an independent nation.

9. In one year, $600 million is spent on fireworks alone in the U.S.

10. Most of the signers of the Declaration did not formally sign until August 2, 1776.

11. Though it is no treasure map as predicted by Nicholas Cage in "Treasure Hunt 2", the message "Original Declaration of Independence dated 4th July 1776" is written upside down on the back of the Declaration of Independence.

12. More than 14,000 firework displays are put on across the country on Fourth of July!

13. Bristol, Rhode Island is home to the world's oldest Independence Day celebration. It dates back to 1785!

I'm Keeping My Christmas Tree Up All Winter And There's Nothing You Can Do About It

It's the WINTER Season... ;-)


I think that my tree would not be considered Christmas-y if the ornaments are taken off and the lights are kept on. I think to just looks wintry. I am also keeping up decorations that say "let it snow", and I am keeping up any snowman without holly berries or presents in their hands.

The tree looks wintry in my opinion. It looks pretty with the lights and brings the room together. It gives off a warm ambiance, unlike that of fluorescent lighting.

I've taken all ornaments off except for gold snowflakes and I've left the silver tinsel garland on as well as the lights. It looks wintry to me still. I will probably be taking the whole tree down by the end of this month to prepare for Valentine's Day decorating. (Yes, I pretty much decorate my apartment for every holiday—sue me).

There's nothing like coming downstairs and seeing those lights sparkling.

Or coming inside from a dreary, rainy day outside and seeing them light up the room in a calm, warm, and comforting glow.

Or having a bad day, looking up, and seeing them shine.

It sort of makes me upset when I come downstairs and see that someone has unplugged them, to be honest.

I guess they don't see it as I do.

Pretty, twinkling lights forever!
