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

Apparently, upside-down Christmas trees are a BIG TREND this year.  You can either mount your tree to the ceiling or buy an artificial tree that’s designed to stand upside-down…

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.

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.
