I love my husband to pieces but each year he hauls out this gingerbread man.  I'm pretty sure this fellow was in the backdrop of a Hitchcock film, lol. 

No offense meant if someone has a similar one they love. This is opinion-based only!

 LOL!!!!!

I don't have any creepy decorations. My Grandmother has this little wind up donkey that was her Mother in Laws when she was a kid (so it is OLD), and it still works but the eyes are completly white, and it moves in jerky movments......creepy.

I tried to donate him once so I wouldn't either, but that didn't work out!

Lol, I could see the gingerbread man meeting an untimely accident.

My mom has this little girl doll, with a rocking chair, she is made of wood and is posed like she fell asleep in the chair and there is a plate of cookies and a note for Santa.

It is ugly and just creepy looking! I have always hated it! Every year when I help her decorate, I try to keep it hidden or "lose" part of it so it doesn't gwt out out. It is almost a game now. Once it gets out I will randomly put a pillow in front of it or drop a towel over it.

Too bad we arent going up there this year, they are coming here, or I would take a picture.

Haha! Maybe I will ask her to send me a picture of it! She would be thinking,"WTF?"

I'll have to re-post a pic of it later when I get a chance... I hide it on a shelf where few see it every year.

It's a small, size of your hand Santa coffin, or case that looks like a coffin.  I got it the first year I was with my husband and it was given to me at his parents holiday party as a white elephant gift.  Everybody laughed and mentioned how creepy it looked, and it's been one of our holiday decorations ever since.

My dh's grandmother left him some of her vintage decorations, you know the little houses and carrollers and little children dragging a tree? You're supposed to make a village with them or something. Well, the reindeer look positively psychotic. Like they're rabid or something. Its horrifying and my dd displayed them on a lower  shelf this year. Where the dog's tail..accidentally..keeps sweeping them off.

That cracked me up! I'm sure she'd wonder why you suddenly wanted a picture of it!
