The 15 Weirdest Pop Culture-Inspired Christmas Ornaments of 2013
Pop culture fanatics obsess over their favorite TV shows, movies, or books every single day. And Christmas is no exception. For those who think about The Walking Dead's Daryl Dixon as often as they think about Santa during the holiday season, traditional Christmas trees with tinsel and ball ornaments are just too boring. Instead, these people adorn their fir trees with everything from Whovian tributes to pictures of who's who in Hollywood.
Luckily, there are plenty of bizarre, pop culture-inspired ornaments out there for people who just can't get enough of their obsession. So, in honor of the holiday and that TV show you won't stop watching on Netflix, here are some examples of great entertainment artwork to hang on your tree. Now, don't these add more pizzazz than tinsel?
Glittery Daryl Dixon
For anyone who loves The Walking Dead’s resident crossbow-wielding badass, this ornament has Dixon’s face, bragging rights, and plenty of red and black glitter — you know, so it’s not too girly.

Mork from 'Mork & Mindy'
It’s 2013, and Hallmark is selling an ornament featuring a character from Mork & Mindy. True, this year marks the series’ 35th anniversary, but, sorry “nano nano” fans. Nono nono.

'Little House on the Prairie' Dolls
This DIY kit lets you create clothespin doll ornaments that look like Laura and Mary Ingalls. The seller has similar kits for other pop culture characters from beloved shows like Star Trek or Downton Abbey. Unfortunately, their faces are not included.

Kirk vs. Gorn Fight on 'Star Trek'
What a cliffhanger to hang from your tree!

John Watson from 'Sherlock'
A slightly unflattering photo of Martin Freeman, but making a Sherlock-inspired ornament is hardly elementary.

Boo "The World's Cutest Dog" Collection
Boo is cute and everything, but are you really going to hang an Internet meme on your Christmas tree? Especially one that isn’t Grumpy Cat?
Available from Macy’s
Dean Winchester from 'Supernatural' on a Sequined Egg
A photo of either of the Winchester brothers’ faces on your tree is simply not enough. If Dean doesn’t deserve an aura of gold around his face, I don’t know who does.

In case your tree is already overloaded with pop culture ornaments, you can still showcase your love of Duck Dynasty with this camouflage duck stocking, featuring one of the show’s slogans. Or you could not. Either way.
