Christmas 2011 Advent Calendar - Day 9

I love Christmas Trees.  I also love Tradition.  In my book there are some things that simply should NOT be messed with.

However, someday - maybe years from now I don't know - I want to have an upside-down Christmas Tree.  I think it would be AWESOME!!

According to legend, in the 12th century in Central Europe people hung their Christmas tree upside-down from the ceiling as a symbol of the Holy Trinity and Christianity.  So there's some history behind the idea, which has more recently been used by retailers as a way to create more floor space for product placement.  Whatever, I just think it looks cool.

And you can even BUY them at Amazon, and probably other places too!!  There's all sorts of different colors and styles!

So.  Totally.  Awesome!!



  1. That is different. I don't think it would survive in my house though with a crazy cat and 80 lb. dog running around!

  2. I've never seen an upside down tree before . . . that would be interesting to decorate. LOL.

  3. That's it! Next year our tree is getting suspended upside down from the ceiling! It looks frickin' AWESOME! :)
