......or are these Xmas decorations several shades of wrong?

Horrible. But some will buy if only for the collectabilty of them for the future.

We don't need to be reminded do we ? grin Bad taste.

Not to my taste but amusing nevertheless! grin

Same as LauraNorder said yuk just yuk

Horrible..I've seen ones with Santy,Father christmas, wearing a face covering and also toilet rolls as a Tree ornament...why,just why?hmm

I like to think i’ve got a good sense of humour, but I they are in very bad taste. We don’t need a reminder.

I must be very dim this moment as it took me a little while to work out what was wrong with it.

Ellianne Sat 17-Oct-20 09:28:12

Yuk. Very distasteful.
If I were designing them, the felt ones would be black.

Made in China no doubt

Ridiculous, nothing to do with Christmas. I shall certainly not be buying any and would be surprised if anyone I know does!

Grannybags Sat 17-Oct-20 09:50:48

Oh no, I don't like those at all.

Moggycuddler Sat 17-Oct-20 10:00:18

Horrible. Not funny. So many people have lost their lives. It doesn't feel right to make a joke of it like that. And I usually have a good broad sense of humour, Monty Python and all that.

Millie22 Sat 17-Oct-20 10:03:08

No no no definitely not just horrible. Can't really believe anyone could like those.

RosesAreRed21 Sat 17-Oct-20 10:09:25

Think they are awful - certainly won’t be putting them in my tree

Nannapat1 Sat 17-Oct-20 10:12:02

I saw some similar advertised on a well known e-commerce website and wondered who on earth would buy such a thing. It won't be me!

So sad that someone somewhere will be hoping to make money from these.

marionk Sat 17-Oct-20 10:30:13

Oh dear, for someone who struggled to find the Christmas in llamas and cacti these are absolutely the pits!

Lin663 Sat 17-Oct-20 10:30:18

Nothing wrong with a bit of gallows humour...they made me laugh, but as for forking out folding money and hanging them on my tree? Not a chance!

maddyone Sat 17-Oct-20 10:33:43

Oh my goodness, they’re horrid.

Aepgirl Sat 17-Oct-20 10:45:09

Totally horrid. But of course some will buy them.

schnackie Sat 17-Oct-20 10:46:25

As Travelsafar said, I may buy one as a collectible. People now are so interested in how they coped in 1918 with that pandemic, it might be interesting to my great grandchilden in the future. I certainly agree that it is in completely bad taste and would not display one. Especially as I do not celebrate Christmas grin.
