    Never met a Christmas tree I didn't like.

    Sorry...but that's "NEXT LEVEL" on the Retarded scale. Two thumbs way down!

    I don't like them either, they just don't look anything like Christmas. I think they are just dumb looking and look nothing like a tree. I guess the saving space does makes some sense, but if it was me, I would either move some furniture around or go for a smaller tree.

    The prettiest application I've seen of the Upside down tree was a Kringle's Christmas Store at Branson. It was over a dining table with garland hanging on either side so it didn't look so ...... Here are 2 pictures. See how they used large ornaments.

    You could spray paint them brown and call them stalactites...if you like caves.

    Hi - new here.
    Must admit I don't like the upside down trees, but it seems they're not a new-fangled idea:
    By the 12th century it became a custom, especially in Europe to hang the Fir trees upside down from the ceilings to symbolize the Holy Trinity. The Upside down Christmas Trees was also considered to be the symbol of Christianity. But the real history behind the hanging of the Trees upside down still remains vague. Presently the trend of hanging a Christmas Tree has changed, because nowadays the tip of the Christmas Tree is made to point towards Heaven, as many think that an upside down Christmas tree is a sign of contempt.
