Its christmas time

I saw the first semi load of Christmas trees today on 75. Just think, if you bought one today it could very well be dead by Thanksgiving.

Oh they will be dead alright. They will paint them with green glue and sell them for new.

The new 'in' thing is to hang your artifical Xmas tree upside down from the ceiling.

From a story in USA Today:

Target has three such upside-down trees ($299.99-$499.99) on its website, touting their best attribute: "Leaves more room on the floor for gifts!"

Similar trees are also available at ChristmasTreeForMe.com in the 5-to-7-foot range ($280-$504).

The artificial trees are hung from the wall or ceiling, or come with a weighted base to provide extra stability to prevent tipping and leaning.

Sheryl Karas, author of The Solstice Evergreen: The History, Folklore and Origins of the Christmas Tree, isn't quite sure what's going on with the resurgence of upside-down trees, a 12th-century tradition in Central Europe.

"Many of the people have been using them as their second tree. A novelty," Jamrosz says. "They also find the bigger gifts don't fit under a traditional tree."

Hanging a tree from the ceiling also ensures a smaller footprint for less-spacious areas. You can put it between two closely placed chairs, for instance.
