Peter Applebome at the New York Times highlights the newest thing for Christmas – upside down Christmas trees [TimesSelect subscription required]:
The idea, other than having something your neighbors don’t, is (1) you can put more presents under them, (2) they take up less real estate for space-challenged apartment dwellers and (3) you can put more prized ornaments at eye level instead of down near the ground where no one can see them.
That and your cats won’t be able to play with the ornaments. The trees will set you back somewhere between $300 and $600.
I’m just trying to figure how to keep the water in the tree stand.
