Noticed on Roger Ailes....
Evidently there's a big trend in upside-down Christmas trees...
The centerpiece of holiday decorating is more often being inverted _ hung from the ceiling or mounted bottom-up on the wall _ by those looking to save space, more prominently display pricey ornaments or simply distinguish their Christmas tree from so many millions of others.
Upscale retailer Hammacher Schlemmer sold out of its $599.95 pre-lit inverted tree, a 7-foot evergreen that rises from a weighted base, before the end of October. Online tree seller ChristmasTreeForMe.com has sold out of two of its four upside-down models. Tree importer Roman Inc. sold out, too.
"This has turned into a worldwide deal," said Bill Quinn, owner of Dallas-based ChristmasTreeForMe.
Odd as it may sound, the trend may have originated long ago. Legend has it that a seventh-century English monk went to Germany and used the triangular shape of the fir tree to explain the Christian belief in a Holy Trinity. Converts came to revere the fir and by the 12th century, the story goes, it was being hung from ceilings at Christmas.
