Survivor Christmas Tree Challenge Part 3

It's Survivor Christmas Tree Challenge at my house! Every week we're voting off one hideous decoration off of the tree. Today I need you to vote something else off! I'm in the middle of a major writing project, so I don't have time to write a really important post today (although you could really help me by filling out my bedroom survey or my Wedding Night Survey), but I think it's still an important work I am doing by ridding my tree of ugliness.

So far you all have helped get rid of the two pictured in the top of this post.

But my husband has just nominated these three for our next batch. First up is a wooden stocking, painted, with odd pom poms affixed in strange places:


Next up is a strange star, made by we're not sure at this point, out of plastic rings.


Finally we have my husband's pick, though you are free to disagree. I believe this is supposed to be peppermint or something, but it's made of glass, and looks really odd.


Here's another angle:


So what will it be? What goes off of the tree today?

The peppermint thing totally looks like bacon! That's awesome!

So, if it remains a tie, do you get to relinquish all 3? Wouldn't that feel good?lol

The ribbon thing is ribbon candy that used to be really popular back in the day, it came in other flavors and colors/

This is hilarious! I so need to do this. We have some ornaments on the tree that I tried not to put up, but the kids asked and I didn't have the hear to tell them no. Maybe they'd get into the whole Survivor thing.c

The peppermint thing is a glass replica of ribbon candy! Save the ribbon candy!

I am from the Maritimes (PEI) and we all love Ribbon Candy (that is what your last decoration is)!! :) I like it! Maybe you should "auction" it off, rather than pitching it out!

That's so funny, Holly! I posted this on Facebook and all my Maritime friends have been yelling at me there, too! And trying to convince me to go buy some ribbon candy and something else called "barley toys", whatever those are.

Anyway, perhaps I'll take you up on your suggestion!
