A comedian’s TikTok video has gone viral after delivering a brutal assessment of what your Christmas decorations say about your family.
Eric D’Alessandro’s verdict on the different types of stocking stuffers starts amiably enough – but then it really starts to delve into the family dynamic, leaving some viewers jokingly feeling “personally attacked.”
Her video has since been viewed over seven million times, and it obviously touched a collective nerve.
“A family’s stocking stuffers will tell you everything you need to know about them,” he begins.
“It will be more accurate than any horoscope you’ve ever read.”
He begins by talking about the traditional green, red and white Christmas stockings with the recipient’s name hand-sewn.
“They’re not really the prettiest to look at, but you made them and your family cherishes the sentimental value,” he says.
“Their tree is full of colorful ornaments that they have collected over the years.
“It’s a house full of love, everyone is welcome.”
Then he assesses an image of a row of snow-white and beige stockings giving off a minimalist, neutral vibe.
“If you walk into someone’s house and see them, turn around and get out immediately,” he says.
“There is no love in this house.”
It then shows off fashion-conscious stocking stuffers embossed with Chanel logos and cheetah prints.
“It’s a cold, uninviting performance from a house,” he says.
“Even Santa Claus is like, oh my God, is this the house with the cheetah stockings.
“This is the family that has two separate Christmas trees because their mother is a psychopath.
“Because nothing says love like throwing away the macaroni ornament your child made in school because it ‘didn’t match my tree theme’.”
He adds that the children of these parents will probably receive “six Playstation 5 consoles” and “Range Rovers” for Christmas.
“All the kids want is a hug and for you to pick up your phone,” he jokes.
The video has racked up over 14,000 comments and one million likes.
“It’s incredibly accurate,” one person wrote.
“I feel personally attacked right now,” said another.
“Mic drop,” observed a third.

But others disagreed with Eric’s assessment.
“Please we got the first ones and our home was toxic and very unwelcoming,” one person wrote.
“Well, I think I’m a psychopath,” said another.
A third jokes: “I’m not leaving. I want the Range Rover, to make up for living without love.
