Cheap Christmas Trash!
I first heard this expression in a play. I forget the title of the play, but it was about a set of sisters in the South. One kept using this expression to comment on another, in reference to the other’s liberal sexuality (i.e. she was a tramp).
She was “cheap Christmas trash”.
This expression gives me a chuckle. It has an oxymoronic feeling to it, as I try hard to make Christmas and its decorations neither cheap or trashy.
However, we used to have an aluminum Christmas tree stand with green and red votive candles. I thought it sweet. Someone definitely put it in category of “Cheap Christmas Trash”. He was glad when it finally cracked.
We have some old plastic ornaments that every year do not get put on the tree – perhaps they count for CTT. But at the moment we don’t seem to have CTT out.

Is Christmas really Christmas without some kitsch?

I need a chuckle and a smile today – please tell me about

A. Your favorite piece of Cheap Christmas Trash
B. What you do with it each year
C. Is it a source of friction in your household?
