It’s getting closer to that time of year aptly referred to as ‘the silly season’ when one must deck the halls with boughs of holly and dig out Santa from the back of the dusty garage. Indeed, the Christmas season does have a peculiar effect on people. Many homeowners delight in decorating the Christmas tree with tinsel, baubles and fairy lights while others decorate their whole house with festoons of fairy lights and cut out reindeers pulling Santa in his sleigh. However, there are even others whose festive spirit transfers to their car. If you are one of these jolly folks, then here are a few ways you can celebrate Christmas with your car.

The Staples:

There are many simple things you can do to jolly up your car this festive season. These include attaching a bow securely attached to the roof, or tying a few baubles over the rear view mirror. You could also toss some Christmas-themed throw cushions on the back seat while singing along to Bing Crosby’s White Christmas on the stereo.
If you are looking for something a bit wackier? Try these fun options:

Santa Backseat Driver:

Make other drivers on the road do a double take, with this window cling that lets them think you have Santa in the back seat. Available from partyjunction.com.au for around $4.60, you can also get it with Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Rudolph your car:

Kits containing a big red plastic nose and antlers are available cheaply from craft shops and even supermarkets at Christmas time and quickly turn your vehicle into a cheery lookalike of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. The set is available at christmaswarehouse.com.au for around $8.95.

Some people, of course, go just a bit too far. Some amazing examples we’ve seen include cars gift-wrapped in cling wrap or foil, festooned inside and out with coloured lights, covered in spray-on fake snow, filled up with gift-wrapped toys and gifts and topped with giant Santa caps.

While the over the top ideas are fun and certainly attention-grabbing, keep in mind that safety comes first. Don’t place anything where it will block your line of vision or anything inside your car that will make driving difficult. As long as you keep it safe, you can use as much creativity as you like to amuse yourself with your decorations – and put a smile on the faces of people who enjoy your efforts.
