Strange, but true. I just heard that upside down Christmas trees were coming back after having been introduced in retail stores a few years ago to help with ornament displays when floor space was scarce. If you are an artificial tree buff, these guys come with a lifetime warranty, lighting installed and they will fit into any room with their inversion. It's also far easier to hang ornaments from a tree when it's upside down. :) (note: this image is from a Hammacher Schlemmer version that's currently sold out, but it'a great pic for giving you the idea).
