Most Bizarre Holiday Decorations


Seen at Novinsky Passazh, a hoity shopping mall here in Moscow. Who possibly thought that a floral gun aimed at a teddy bear over a nose-diving airplane is appropriate holiday décor?

With the victims of the Newtown, CT school shooting on my mind, this seems even more out-of-place...

Moscow can be really weird sometimes.

That really wins the booby prize for bizarre. Are you in Moscow for the Holidays? Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Very sick holiday decoration with a gun aiming to kill a bear IMO.

My guess is that all those items are toys kids might want?

Someone else wrote in to say that the toys represent what you would have seen on an old-fashioned Russian tree, presents from Dyed Moroz. My point, however, was how bizarre the final arrangement is. And my whole point was that it seems weird to an American here—not that Russians are bizarre.

you deleted my comment that wasnt hatefull. you delete comments that critisize america but you keep comments that critisize russia. well thats very neat. a true spirit of democratics and freedom of speech. at first americans critisize putin for not being democratic enough but then they delete critical opinions on themselves.

Wow, that is horrible. How are guns and dropping planes Christmas? I don't get it. It is strange. I guess it must be art. lol
