I didn’t realize there was a startling lack of Back to the Future representation on my Christmas tree until I received this DeLorean ornament today. I got Star Wars and Ninja Turtles covered, but Back to the Future? Nothing, I’m ashamed to say. But I feel better already knowing this little beauty is hanging on my tree now, making up for years of sins of Christmas past.
This ornament is a castaway from someone in my family who clearly doesn’t appreciate the movie as much as I do. Yeah, it’s essentially a re-gift, but when the re-gifted item is this cool, who cares? It didn’t come with a box, though, so I had to do some Googling. I discovered this is actually the 2012 Back to the Future Hallmark Keepsake Ornament, appropriately called “OUTATIME” which you can see on the license plate in that last pic above. It doesn’t light up or make any sounds (sadly) but the wheels turn, so you can drive it around like a Hot Wheels car if you want to. Not that I spent a few seconds doing that or anything. And I definitely didn’t yell “1.21 GIGAWATTS!” while doing so.
Here’re a couple of shots of it hanging on my Christmas tree:
And here’s the whole tree, in all of its Christmas-y glory. If you’re really bored right now, you could play a fun game of “Spot the Delorean on ShezCrafti’s Christmas Tree.” It’s a new tradition.
