Hooniverse Asks- Do You Decorate Your Car for the Holidays?

Ho, Ho, Ho-no!
Ho, Ho, Ho-no!
Some people hang a wreath on their front door. Others go all Clark Griswold about their holiday decorations. While many of those limit their compulsion to their abode, sometimes that proves to be an insufficient canvas to fully capture their holiday spirit, and it is also immobile, denying many the chance to see their creative flair. Hence they visit their talents upon their car.
It may be as simple as a wreath hung on the grill, but of course that has been zip-tied there since just after Halloween. Or, it’s reindeer antlers affixed to the roofline and a red nose stuck on the hood badge. Sometimes, the holiday spirit so fully invades an individual that the car becomes nearly unrecognizable under its burden of tinsel, lights and inflatable santas, causing an X-mas overload and potential alternator failure from the excess draw.

So, do you keep your vehicle clear of holiday cheer? Or do you like to have the holiday spirit travel with you where ever you go?

    I play Santa a couple of times during the holiday season. Depending upon weather and venue, I like to park the Spider out front, top down, with bogus personalized plates from the North Pole that read "Santa", and a large velvet sack stuffed conspicuously behind the seats.

    No, no no, nononononooooo. In my neck of the woods, EVERYONE has a wreath on their hood, and it doesnt come off until june, when its time to put the Longhorn horns back on.
    An aside expecial for Mad_Science, my mom inherited her parents Falcon Wagon long, long ago. We used to put a bow on the front. It was actually pretty cool as a child. A huge white wagon tearing along with a big ass red bow flowing in the breeze. Good times.

    I'm very Scrooge-like this year. No Christmas tree, Christmas lights, or other decoration on my abode. What's the point? Trees dry out causing a fire hazard and while the weather is usually decent around Thanksgiving to put lights up, taking them down in January absolutely blows. So, they stay up until like April and by then the neighbors are leaving threatening letters in my mailbox. Screw it.
    So, to your decorated houses and cars I say, "Bah! Humbug."

      As an insurance and risk management professional, I approve of this safe, sensible, fiscally responsible, possibly carbon neutral and utterly dull approach to holiday decoration, as it leaves you the funds necessary to pay your January insurance payments.

    My mom has a collection of Mickey Mouse antenna toppers, and I've been informed that as a condition of getting the car, I'm obligated to leave one on at all times, and that I have to switch to the Christmas themed one. After that, I might break out the Beach Boys Christmas album. But my car is small and very grey – festive doesn't suit it.

    My car's red, so the white salt spray and the little green bits in the front T-bird logo's feet/tail/whatever make it festive enough.
