Upside-Down Christmas Trees Are Becoming a Big Trend This Year

 

Feel like the entire world is turned upside-down?  Why not let your Christmas tree make that metaphor.

  

Apparently, UPSIDE-DOWN CHRISTMAS TREES are trendy this year.

  

You can either mount your tree to the ceiling so it hangs, or buy an artificial tree that's designed to stand upside-down.  Pretty much every store sells them now, from Home Depot to Target.

  

So what's the point?  Well, if you're into serious religious symbolism, the upside-down tree is big in central and Eastern Europe because people think it resembles the shape of Jesus on the cross.

  

Or if you're more into aesthetics, the upside-down tree shows off your ornaments better, because they're dangling into the air, not being covered up by thicker branches underneath.

(And one more quick Christmas tree story:  A guy was pulled over in Massachusetts on Friday for carrying a Christmas tree on his car that was SO BIG it's impossible that he could see.  Here's a picture.)
