My Christmas Tree Food Ornaments! A Holiday Tree With Bacon! Sushi! Elvis!

A “Strip Of Bacon” Christmas Tree Ornament!

My friend Michael Danahy sent me this terrific bacon ornament for my Christmas tree – and it’s a really big slice!

Michael’s note stated that he assumed I already had one, but he thought of me and had to send it and for that I say “thank you thank you thank you!”

But he was right: for some reason, a LOT of people have gifted me bacon – here is proof:

Yes, when Alex decorates the tree, she strategically places one strip of bacon close to the pig ornament – talk about symmetry!

This “mini-tree” inn our back room is where Alex puts all of the “more unique” ornaments!

Over the years, we’ve been able to collect some really fun ornaments, like this one from the great “Girl And The Goat” restaurant in Chicago:

And yes, we proudly hang up the Obama ornaments as well…but when all is said and done, it really is “all about the bacon”:

Yes, I’ve even been gifted an Iberico Ham!

Thanks to everyone who has given me good-related ornaments – like these from Kareen, Chris and Harrison – yes, sushi!

I’ve even gotten this as a gift – the bacon cheeseburger!

Oh, and let’s not forget that even the “King” looks great on an ornament – that’s right, it’s an “Elvis Presley” Christmas!

Speaking of celebrities, remember these holiday ads fronted by celebs that I shared?

Yes, these holiday ads are for everything from booze to cigarettes and more! See them here:

  2. I’ve seen it all now! Lol.

    I don’t have an Elvis decoration, but my friend does, and he goes right at the top instead of an angel/star/fairy. I always thought that was kinda cool. She’d love your bacon though! 😎
