These "upside down" trees were all the rage last year. I guess they were designed so that you could place more presents at the bottom. It also has the side effects of being harder for pets and kids to climb up on. It just doesn't say Christmas to me somehow. All the right parts are there but well, they're upside down!
Here's a different take on a Christmas tree -- a bicycle sculpture all painted white. It's definitely different. Maybe it's a statement about environmental friendliness. Instead of chopping down trees or driving SUV's, let's all use bikes!
This strange little tree is tied to a fence literally in the middle of nowhere. It's totally reminds me of Charlie Brown's Christmas tree.
This intellectual's answer to the Christmas tree was created by Frank Visser of IJM. Really cuts down on decorating costs and fuss. Plus, there's no giant box to store at the end of it all or even worse, a sadly decomposing tree.
This Christmas tree created last year was dubbed the world's most expensive Christmas tree. It was created by Soo Kee Jewelery in Singapore and is worth over $1 million US dollars. There were almost 22,000 diamonds on it totalling more than 900 carats. It is truly a tree that looks like what it is worth -- outrageous and gorgeous!
这是去年创造出圣诞树，它被誉为世界上最昂贵的圣诞树，去年新加坡珠宝商Soo Kee Jewellery打造了这棵价值逾100万美元的圣诞树，花费了将近22000颗砖石，砖石总计逾900克拉。这棵树看上去也物有所值—令人惊讶的、华美的！
This modernist take on a Christmas tree was displayed at a Snow Festival in Sapporo, Japan. The huge branches look a little bare to me. Definitely a minimalist's Christmas tree.
This is a picture of one of the biggest Christmas trees that I could find. It is made up of 350 fake trees, each with decorations and lights. These trees were then all placed together on a steel stand to make up this giant monstrosity over 60 feet tall! All this to draw attention to a new company in China -- promoting the Yellow Pages of all things.
So this is what $12 can buy you... a 6 foot, blue LED and fibre optic tree! The tree itself is transparent purple, of course. This just does not say "Christmas" to me somehow... It actually looks more like some strange underwater creature than a Christmas tree!
