An upside-down Christmas

Check this out.....

The girls and I saw it in a catalog yesterday. I was floored. (Maybe, considering the picture, I should say I was ceilinged)

I realize that a lot of people consider Christmas trees themselves sacreligious. I have never been one of those people. However, seeing this Christmas tree upside down hit me that way. Isn't that odd? I mean, it is not the cross. It isn't anything to do with Jesus. But I have always seen it that way. I have always seen our Christmas tree as "pointing to God." Maybe it was a Sunday School lesson or something.

So let me tell you the reason they sell this lovely tree
"...this unique 7' pre-lit fir is inverted to ensure a smaller footprint for less-spacious areas, and allowing more room for the accumulation of presents underneath. "


"More room for the accumulation of presents underneath."

I think more than the tree is upside down.

Wow...that is...interesting. I agree with you. Something just isn't quite right with that.

Okay - you're going to laugh..
but my thought was...

Do you suppose that if we HAD that tree - we'd accumulate more presents??

And then -- would the cat leave it alone??

And how do you fix it so a 2 year old doesn't knock it down.

Okay - so that was more than 1 thought. *LOL* I was on a self-amused roll there. Sorry. I'll reel myself back in. Or maybe I should say ; real myself back in.

*LOL* I crack me up.

We saw a house with a tree like that in the window, last year. It was sort of wierd and made us do a double take to make sure we saw it right.
