A collection of $8 Reindeer Christmas stockings from Kmart has gone viral online after shoppers spotted a manufacturing error which saw one of them turn out to be the ‘saddest’ stocking ever.

“Spot the 2020 Boot stocking...,” a shopper captioned a photo showing the mishap after sharing it to a popular Kmart group on Facebook.

The post quickly went viral receiving almost 2,000 likes, with plenty of people agreeing the ‘sad’ stocking summed up 2020 perfectly.

“OMG I want it. I so relate,” one person commented.

“You had one job,” another wrote.

“Totally needs to be bought just so you can put a 2020 sign/sticker on it,” another said.

While one optimistic shopper wrote: “Let’s hope the smiley ones are the years to come!”

Others said the sad stocking was a great option for anyone that ended up on the ‘naughty list’.

“Great for children on the naughty list,” one mum commented.

Funnily enough the product description on the website reads: “Bring a cheerful atmosphere to your home this Christmas, with this big and bright boot stocking.”

Well, this reindeer obviously missed his ‘cheerful’ cue.


It comes after another Kmart shopper made a rather 'dirty' X-rated discovery on party decoration.

Earlier this year, a mum shared several snaps of the decorations for her boy’s dinosaur-themed bash which included dino plates, cups and a huge blue Tyrannosaurus balloon.

“When you realise you were blowing it in more than one way,” the mum captioned the pics. She also added several suggestive hashtags including “#blowhard” and “#dirty”.
