Upside-down Christmas trees
USA Today is running an article on the latest holiday trend, one that I had absolutely no idea about:
trees. Apparently they're popular for their smaller footprint and their higher under-tree gift capacity, and stores
like Target and Hammacher Schlemmer are making a killing on
the inverted artificial trees, which sell for between $300 and $600. The article goes on to quote a Christmas tree
expert who says that it's in fact "a pagan thing," and that "if they thought about it, they wouldn't turn it upside
down." Pagan or not, it is pretty weird, but I can see how it might be a practical for smaller spaces.
