Why Don’t Christmas Decorations Self-Destruct?

I’m so sad to take this tree down.

Mostly because it took three hours and three people to put it up. And it’s not even our Christmas tree. Oh, and we decorated two other trees in our yard. Plus lights.

We are stupid.

I want Christmas decoration mission impossible style.



Okay, I don’t know if I could handle that music all month. Or the fire.

Maybe eco-decor that biodegrades by Spring! It’d still be better than Christmas lights in June. (I wish that last sentence was an exaggeration.)

Holy crap, it’s hard being such a genius.

Scientist with this technology? CALL ME.

PS. I started a collabortive review and giveaway site, This Blogger Makes Fun of Stuff, so I can just write here. Also, because I’m tired of reviews that don’t actually review anything. You’ll find it at www.makesfunofstuff.com. You can follow us on Twitter @MakesFun and Facebook to catch all the giveaways and reviews. And if you have reviews or giveaways that don’t fit on your website or if you have an etsy site and would like do a review/giveaway or want ad space, you should email me: [email protected]. Bio-degradable Christmas decoration will be given away on this site once they’re invented. Probably.

  1. There is a reason people leave their lights up all year long – it is a pain in the ass to take them all down. I just love how people put up their lights the first of December and then don’t bother to take them down until February.

  2. I love this idea. I’ve been sadly staring at my Christmas tree since the day we put it up thinking, “I’m going to have to put this all away in 24, 23, 22…days.” I’m good at wiping the joy out of holidays. Self-destruction would be a great solution.

  3. Biodegradable ornaments is a great idea! That doesn’t seem to work with my Halloween pumpkin, however, which sits around for longer than it should. I suppose that’s a lot to biodegrade though.
