Feel like the entire world is turned upside-down? Why not let your Christmas tree make that metaphor.
Apparently, UPSIDE-DOWN CHRISTMAS TREES are trendy this year.
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.

The upside-down Christmas tree is exactly why I don't bother to keep up with trends – it looks ridiculous 🙃 pic.twitter.com/6ALgFhVmul

If you have a house with kids, a cat or a dog, the appeal of an upside-down Christmas tree makes perfect sense. Besides, you can see the ornaments better! pic.twitter.com/R2jtpeD744
