The tradition isn't anything new.
"Hanging fir trees upside down goes back to the Middle Ages, when Europeans did it to represent the Trinity. But now, Christmas trees are shaped with the tip pointing to heaven, and some think an upside-down Christmas tree is disrespectful or sacrilegious.
The trees were recently introduced to retailers for in-store displays, so more ornaments could be displayed at eye level to the buying public. And they left more floor space to hold extra stock of decorations." The Internet didn't quite know what to make of the phenomenon. There's even stories of these upside down trees selling for close to $1000

 

Call me the traditional type when it comes to Christmas but I would prefer to keep my tree right side up.

What do you think? Would you hang your tree upside down to be trendy?
