Five Christmas Pinterest Trends to Avoid at All Costs

Let's be honest right off the bat. Only a small fraction of the shit you "pin" actually makes an appearance in your real life. Those runway dresses, that Martha Stewart craft room with the organized detail only a serial killer could recreate -- and let's not forget the food porn. All of our recipes are pinned to a board called "I'll Never Make This."

But nonetheless, a girl (or boy) can daydream (although if we're still aboard this honesty train, let's admit it: Pinterest's main demographic is stay-at-home wives who treat their undiagnosed psychological disorders with white wine and shopping).

And in the daydreamy season of the holidays where we all tend to lose sight of what's important, or, rather, realistic, Pinterest is back in full effect, sending us images of what couldn't, and sometimes shouldn't, ever be.

Here are five Pinterest trends to avoid at all costs.
