At some point this decade, it became perfectly normal to have what look like children's bounce houses in your front yard dedicated to the nearest holiday. Yes, inflatable yard decorations, especially those for Christmas, are officially "a thing," and while we could argue about how tacky they look all day, there's no denying how ridiculous these 11 examples are. If you're going to run a fan outside your home for hours each day to promote the holiday, at least choose an inflatable that makes more sense than a hunting snowman or Santa living in a trailer. Check out the 11 inflatables that made us go "huh?" below, and vote for the funniest one!
