I saw these on the Television the other night and I had to take a double take, WHAT ???!!! An Upside Down Christmas Tree@!?

I know it is hard to get your head around these trees and I think you will either love them or not.

‘They do look sort of cool’ my daughter said, but my son was like ‘No way don’t like them at all.’

They sure are a personal preference and I really do like them in the shopping centers I think they look great hanging from the ceiling but not sue in a standard home.

Ok so it sounds weird and to be honest I think they look weird but each to there own, so I did a little investigating to find our more about Christmas trees why we have them why we decorate them and why we now have upside down Christmas trees.

The History of The Christmas Tree

The evergreen fir tree has traditionally been used to celebrate winter festivals (pagan and Christian) for thousands of years. Pagans used branches of it to decorate their homes during the winter solstice, as it made them think of the spring to come. The Romans used Fir Trees to decorate their temples at the festival of Saturnalia. Christians use it as a sign of everlasting life with God.

Nobody is really sure when Fir trees were first used as Christmas trees. It probably began about 1000 years ago in Northern Europe. Many early Christmas Trees seem to have been hung upside down from the ceiling using chains (hung from chandeliers/lighting hooks). Source

The Evergreen Trees seemed to be the only trees that lasts through the winter months and reminded people that spring was soon to come.

Decorations

The trees use to be decorated with Apples, Nuts and Pretzel Bread and Paper Flowers and candles were hung to bring light to them. It became a common practice to decorate them as a family.

Candles are not used anymore due to safety and now Christmas lights are strung around the tree to light them up. We don’t use food to decorate our trees anymore we use Christmas decorations such as baubles, candy canes, garland and tinsel, the top of the tree are usually darned with a star or angel. Many families will put up and decorate their Christmas tree after Thanksgiving or even on Thanksgiving. There is no right or wrong time to put up your tree this is a personal decision you make as a family.

Why an Upside Down Christmas Tree?

So the upside down Christmas Tree has been around for ages I found out, but it never seemed to take off unless you had a huge house with a chandelier hanging in it that you could decorate with Christmas tree branches or in a shopping mall like the one below.

This chandelier-like tree, covered in crystals, was hung in a shopping mall in 2016 it now appears the inverted trees have caught on. ( source )

Some people are loving them and some people find them disrespectful. I am still not convinced I must say I feel like my whole world is Topsy turfy and I feel like I have to turn every picture upside down for it to be right. But then again what is wrong with something a little different? Might be a great talking point at he Christmas party.

Life Of A Christmas Tree

Ok there you have it the story of Christmas trees and the new trend of the Upside Down Christmas tree. What do you think? Do you love it or hate it? I am still undecided, my kids are not keen at the moment so I might wait a few more days to have a good think about it before I decide if I want to go all out and get an Upside Down Christmas Tree. Some days I feel my life is pretty Topsy turfy so it might be perfect for me….
