Santa cover your eyes; these are the worst Christmas decoration designs ever

December is here, and that means that a lot of people around the world have started putting up their Christmas decorations. While it's traditional to wait until 8 December in some countries, many people today start to decorate as soon the month begins (or as soon as Halloween is over if you're a high-street retailer).

And with the decorations come the inevitable Christmas decoration design fails, of which we've seen many. Reddit has been a veritable depository of Christmas design fails over the years, from illegible window stickers to questionable angel candles and... er, 'fuckering lights'. Below we round up some of our favourites from the past ten years, along with the festive lessons we can learn from them.
