When it comes to decorating your Christmas tree, a lot of the process comes down to personal preference. Some people love tradition. Traditional colors, traditional styles and a traditional approach all leave very little wiggle room for creativity in Christmas tree decoration. Others aren’t so bound to the classics. If it looks nice, makes you smile or maybe even just came free with your cereal, then cram that ornament on the tree! If you fall into the latter category, this list is for you. Personally, we believe that no Christmas tree is complete without a couple of the best funny Christmas ornaments, and we’re always looking for more to add to our holiday collection.
In general, most trees are green and feature some kind of Christmas lights. However, one of the easiest ways to put your own spin on your tree or to try something a little zany is by adding your own unique selection of the best funny Christmas ornaments. Ornaments come in all shapes and sizes, meaning that no matter what you’re into, there’s probably an ornament to match.
Ornaments are also a great way to generate Christmas cheer. Whether it’s through sentiment, nostalgia or even humor, the best funny Christmas tree ornaments can turn your tree from a run-of-the-mill bore-fest into an unforgettable visual experience everyone is sure to remember.

- Naked Mr & Mrs Claus

7. The Sweater King Barry Wood Meme Christmas Tree Ornament
If you’ve made it this far in our technologically-driven society, there’s no way you haven’t yet received a fake, newsworthy text from a buddy expressing concern over the recent election, quarantine or maybe even a storm that included a link to a photo of this man.

Wood has since sadly passed in 2016, but since fans of the meme began to take an interest in his existence, he has amassed a cult following. His fans even took it upon themselves to help raise money for his family during the pandemic and even to give him a proper headstone atop his grave, proving that memes can really do a lot for people.
