“Kitsch originates from German term verkitschen (similar meaning to ‘knock off’ in English” by Sethapong Povatong

In my opinion “Kitsch” can related to “Nostalgia” and “Vernacular”, this three word had something that can link together. But in fact, it look like people recognize this word in meaning “bad taste” and because this word was 1 of 10 English words that hardest to translate (in June 2004 by British translation company). So if we want to know this word deeply, we must think about context that depend on many situation.
