After a few too many drinks at xmas, there is a danger this tree may appear to look upright !

They are also top heavy and can easily topple over.

One of my family works at John Lewis and the display tree in the store is always falling over when someone touches it.

NOT a tree to have with children in the house.

Of course it's an American idea, it's pointless and ineffectual.

A bit of basic skills learnt from "Blue Peter" or scouts etc. would have a tree tied at the top to prevent it tipping over... and there is an instruction sheet which is not read! It is a great idea and a talking point... it is especially good for a lot of small homes where the lounge is not big enough to swing a cat.

You can tell we're *well* overdue a recession when things like this have crept into the shops.

Just stupid.

Yes, it was! :santa:

They were selling these in last years sales at £5. They still couldnt shift them...
#18
If someone offered to pay me £30.00 to have one of these in my lounge I'd refuse .
#19

it appears that if you research it, this style of tree isn't american in any shape or form. I can remember reading something about it years ago (in the 80's) so thought i'd do a little research, heres something i found along with lots more info... so less dissing the americans as a scape goat as the real culprits are us europeans...

"Christmas is associated with a lot of traditions, of which the Christmas Tree is an inherent part. The history of the upside down Christmas Tree has its roots in the 7th century. It is during this period that St Bonafice journeyed from Devonshire, England to Germany to preach the message of God.

He engaged himself in religious as well as social work and spent a lot of his time in Thuringia, a town located in Germany itself, which is the birthplace of the industry dealing with Christmas Decorations.

It is believed that St Boniface wile staying in Thuringia, took the help of the triangular fir tree to represent the Holy Trinity made up of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. As a result the converted people started to worship the Fir tree as God's Tree. Then St Bonafice, using this triangular shaped tree tried to introduce to the pagan tribes the paragons of Trinity.

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.

othe places have better versiosn that tie to the ceiling and look amazing if your short on space x
#22
What we need is a horizontal xmas tree, you can have it to the left or right & stack your pressies in an acsending order going upwards with the shape of the tree very pleasing on the eye & you can have a tree fairy in a flying stylee
#23
Sorry.. but this really is sh*t. I would feel a right numpty when the relatives came round at Christmas with that monstrosity in the corner..
#24
I'm not voting either way, it's definitely not for me but it's the funniest thing I've seen on here all week. Thanks for making me laugh!:-D
#25
just to say our friends have a fab one that is hung in the apex of their conservatory roof it looks fabulous but you do need a relatively high ceiling - its not quite the same as this one though - it kinda dangles rather than sits on the floor

#27

#28

things looks totally stupid but is a pretty good idea. My problem is the cat would want in it all the time and it'd most definitely spend more time toppled over than upright!

November 11th is close to christmas? Anyone who's already thinking about christmas trees needs a head check.

Although I agree that this tree is an utter farce.
#32
i am looking for a sideways one.. anyone know where i can get one?
#33
Stop moaning, if you don't like it, stick it upside down.
#34
They have got these in my local B&Q for £24.99 (was £75 as well)
#35
Why would anyone want this in their house?

i wonder why they dropped the price?, to anyone with the not enough room problem you could but this tree or an easy solution is to put your tree on top of a block of some sort; a small stool, or small table, or even buy a tree with space below it! some tress are made to nearly hit the floor and that's clearly not for you.
#37
It just looks stupid
#38
I have one and it looks fantastic and I know a few others that are buying them this year. Huge space saver and decorations hang better. I came 7th in the worlds best Christmas tree with mine last year. Big up the upside down tree be different.
