In a desperate attempt to save on food costs, families across the country have resorted to eating their Christmas decorations.
The trend, which started as a joke among friends, has quickly gained popularity as more and more people struggle to afford groceries.
“I saw it on Facebook and thought it was hilarious, so I decided to try it out for myself,” said one mother of three. “It turns out that candy canes and gingerbread houses are actually quite tasty!”
The trend has sparked concern among health experts, who warn that eating Christmas decorations can be dangerous.
“Most Christmas decorations are not meant to be eaten, and can contain harmful chemicals or sharp objects that can cause injury,” said one nutritionist. “I strongly advise against this trend.”
Despite the warnings, many families are continuing to eat their decorations, saying that it’s better than going hungry.
“We can’t afford to buy food, so we have to get creative,” said one father of four. “My kids love it, and it saves us a ton of money. It’s a win-win.”
In the end, it seems that the trend of eating Christmas decorations is here to stay, at least until the economy improves. So if you see someone nibbling on a tinsel garland or a star-shaped cookie, don’t be surprised – they’re just trying to save a few bucks.
