Holiday decorations vs mpg

I was seriously thinking about this as I saw a car with the all too familiar reindeer antlers. How much do holiday decorations really hurt your gas mileage???

GMC deciding to figure it out while showcasing their new SUV.

Christmas Decorations Hurt Fuel Economy More Than You Might Think - Motor Trend


I really wish someone on here would do a coast down test with these so we can get some real numbers though.

At least it's seasonal. 'Round these parts, people fly University of Zero flags on their cars. Their flapping is distracting in traffic.

The nose surprises me. Antlers not so much. Either way I don't think a bit of holiday spirit is a bad thing if it helps bind the community. We have little enough of that as it is.
