Everybody has their own unique approach to Christmas. With that being said, it's also important to acknowledge that the holiday season warrants a bit of letting loose and allowing our inner child to run free. To achieve this, one should ideally go for a decorative setup that's over-the-top cheery and festive rather than toned down and minimalistic. TikTok influencer Joe Wood (@joelmwood) expressed his strong views on Christmas decorations and how they should be done in a video that's struck a chord with many. The video has gained 16.3 million views and 17.7k comments on the social media site.

Wood begins by stating that he has something to say that "boring" people absolutely need to hear. The man explains how Christmas tree decorations were not supposed to be sleek, classy or minimalistic. Instead, he suggests, "It's supposed to look like joy has thrown up in your house." This meant that it is more than okay to have a few decorations that might be considered "tacky."

He concludes the short video by telling people to "loosen up" and go ahead and buy a bunch of tacky Christmas decorations. The man also adds that people should stop taking themselves so seriously because, according to him, no one was impressed with such things. People wholeheartedly agreed with Wood's suggestions and a few put down their thoughts in the comments section. Others went ahead and stitched his video, showing off their colorful and cheery Christmas decorations at home.

@sgillustrator said, "I've seen some decoration influencers who are going for a beige Christmas. Like, how bland could you be?? It’s like decorating with cardboard." Another individual @victoriavbarbosa suggested, "Or your Christmas tree is supposed to be whatever makes you happy. Don't decorate for other people. Whatever makes you smile and brings you joy." @sendrii213 shared, "I love tacky Christmas. Saw a house of Christmas lights last night that would make Clark Griswold proud. Full-on party lights flashing."

There are certainly many different approaches to the way people celebrate Christmas around the globe. Ellie Owen (@fleurdellie) shared a video showcasing how she and her family have a blast with Christmas in Denmark. The video begins with the woman saying, "Here are some Danish Christmas traditions that we as an American family have adopted living in Denmark." The first one involves the family visiting vibrant Christmas markets around town, where they get to try out many drinks and food.

The family also loves an "advent calendar candle" that the children are deeply invested in. In fact, everyone in the country get their pick of advent calendars suited to their specific tastes. The country also goes all out when it comes to decorations for Christmas. It seems that the country as a whole takes an old-fashioned approach to the festive season.

The children are also fond of their "Nisse doll" which they keep with them during the entire month of December. According to Hygge Box, Nisse is a fictional character within Nordic folklore who bought Christmas presents for the kids in mid-1800s Denmark. The kids play and sleep with her, bringing them great joy during the festival. The family essentially takes a very proactive approach, really embracing the joy of the festive season.
