We understand, December is a very taxing month. Between digging yourself out of a snowy driveway every morning and spending half an hour trying to park at the mall, you might start to lose it. Just count your lucky stars that you're not as far gone as these two drivers.

Unable to experience the joy of scrambling around hanging lights on an ice-slick roof, Texan Rachelle Brown decided to have her festive near-death experience in her Corolla. Decked out with a nativity scene, cotton snowballs and a few strands of lights plugged into an inverter, the snow globe car is as distracting as it is a fire hazard. Nicely done, Rachelle.

Kris Marshall's Christmas truck, on the other hand, is a 25-year-old tradition. The central Iowa truck salesman hauls around a generator to power the 3000 lights taped all over the vehicle. While most police officers are pretty understanding, the whole business is not at all street legal and Kris has been ticketed a few times. In any case, nobody will be able to say they didn't see him coming.
