Unusual Christmas Trees

The Festivus Pole

Okay, technically not a Christmas tree, but since as depicted on the December 18, 1997 Seinfeld episode "The Strike" today is actually Festivus I couldn't not include it on this list.

Happy Festivus - The Holiday for the Rest of Us!

During Festivus, the Festivus Pole is displayed completely unadorned. The aluminum pole was chosen apparently in opposition to the commercialization of highly decorated Christmas trees, because it is very low-maintenance, and also because the holiday's patron saint, Frank Costanza, finds tinsel "distracting".

The Upside Down Christmas Tree

This upside-down seven foot pre-lit Christmas tree evokes a 12th century Central European tradition of hanging a tree from the ceiling at Christmas, this unique fir is inverted to ensure a smaller footprint for less-spacious areas, and allowing more room for the accumulation of presents underneath.

The Who-ville Christmas Tree

Clasp hands and sing Fah who for-aze! Dah who dor-aze! Welcome Christmas around in true Dr. Seuss style with this little tree, based on the classic illustration from "How the Grinch Stole Christmas".

Charlie Brown’s Pathetic Christmas Tree

Good Grief! Learn the true meaning of Christmas with Charlie Brown's classically pathetic Christmas tree. Linus Van Pelt says: "It's not a bad little tree. All it needs is a little love."
The Mountain Dew Christmas Tree
Three months of soda drinking (approximately four hundred cans of Mountain Dew) and four days of building to get this really creative Christmas Tree ready for the holidays.
The Beer Bottle Christmas Tree

Now this is a project I can get whole heartily support. Forget drinking all that soda-pop, if you want an alternative to your boring Christmas tree and are comfortable displaying your healthy beer drinking habit...then all you need it a taste for Grolsch and a little free time and you too can have a beer bottle tree.

Christmas Tree-zilla!

This is the mother of all Christmas trees. A gigantic seven story "tree" made from three hundred and fifty regular-sized Christmas trees! Approximately seventy staffers of the Yilong Media company of China constructed this pyramid of Christmas trees.

Yikes. Most of those trees look like a lot of work. No wonder Frank opted for the pole.

Nothing wrong with a beautiful exotic dancer, but she would dare not profane the Festivus Pole with her gyrations. Happy Festivus!

Replacing your regular Christmas tree with that upside down one on Christmas morning would be a great prank.
