Stores are selling $1,000 upside down Christmas trees

PIX 11 News

Christmas may be about traditions, but some stores are flipping things around.

They’re selling upside down Christmas trees. Home Depot, Target, Walmart,Kohls and Bed Bath & Beyond all have the them for sale. Some of the upside down trees are already sold out.

Upside down trees retail for around $150-$1,000.  

This isn’t the first time the topsy-turvy trees have been fashionable. Home decorating website The Spruce says the tradition of “hanging a Christmas tree upside down from the ceiling is an old one in Central and Eastern Europe.”

It may be an old tradition, but many people are confused.

“The upside-down Christmas tree is exactly why I don’t bother to keep up with trends – it looks ridiculous,” one woman tweeted.

Others were confused by the price.

“I have a lot of questions. Why is Target selling an upside down Christmas tree? Why is it nearly $1000? Is this a Stranger Things joke that I’m missing? Someone help,” another tweet read.

    There’s a new one born every minute.

    Maybe the “upside down” Christmas tree is analogous to the upside-down crucifixion cross worn by Satanists and pretenders… Either way, a Christmas tree is part of the Yuletide pagan ritual anyway, so to me these is no difference.

    Because there are enough stupid sheeple out there willing to fork over that kind of mammon for one.

    My friend told me about hers from 20 years ago. She actually hanged it from the ceiling though. Yesterday a friend of here sent her a link and was laughing about 20 years ago. At least here was decorated with joints made of real pot.

    There is a sucker born every minute
    Each time the second hand sweeps to the top
    Like dandelions up they pop,
    Their ears so big, their eyes so wide.
    And though I feed ‘em bonafide baloney
    With no truth in it
    Why you can bet I’ll find some rube to buy my corn.
    ‘Cause there’s a sure-as-shooting sucker born a minute,
    And I’m referrin’ to the minute you were born.

    Each blessed hour brings sixty of ‘em
    Each time the wooden cuckoo shows his face
    Another sucker takes his place,
    And plunks his quarter on the line
    To buy my brand of genuine malarkey.
    God bless and love ‘em!
    But don’t feel sad or hoppin’ mad or cause a scene
    ‘Cause there’s a sure-as-shooting sucker born a minute,
    But Ma’am you mighta been the minute in between.

    If I allow that right here in my hands
    The smallest living human man
    The sight of that is surely worth a dime
    If I present an educated pooch
    Who’s trained to dance the hoochie cooch
    What better way to waste a bit of time
    If I imported monumental cost
    A lady, fair, who’s head was lost
    While crossing railroad tracks to pick some zinnias
    Who eats farina through a hose
    And wares pink tights instead of clothes
    If that ain’t worth a buck my name ain’t Phineas

    Aw you say that’s hog wash well who cares
    You’ll buy my hog was long as

    There’s a sucker born every minute
    Each time the second hand sweeps to the top
    Like dandelions up they pop,
    Their ears so big, their eyes so wide.
    And though my tale is bonafide baloney,
    Just let me spin it,
    And ain’t no man who can resist me wait and see
    ‘Cause there’s a sure-as-shooting sucker born a minute,
    And friends the biggest one excluding none is me!

    Really a smart thing to do to your kids or family members, put an upside down Christmas tree in your home, really really intelligent.

    Where the hell are the upside down manorahs?
