All We Want for Christmas Is to Understand Why Upside-Down Trees Are Trending
Let's be real: In some ways, 2017 was an upside-down year. (Looking at you, apocalyptic hurricane season.) And this season's outstandingly bizarre Christmas trend seems to be in agreement.
From private residences to iconic hotels and landmark malls, trees are being suspended from ceilings like giant pine-needle chandeliers. Yup, upside-down Christmas trees are officially trending. While we're all for shaking up holiday decor from year to year, this particular trend just makes us feel, well...dizzy.
Below, a look at the upside down abundance this season. (Grab a Dramamine.)

An upside-down tree in front of French doors? Sure, why not?
In reference to the above image (an upside-down tree currently for sale at Target), Twitter user @schaferwafer reflected: "I have a lot of questions. Why is Target selling an upside down Christmas tree? Why is it nearly $1000? Is this a Stranger Things joke that I’m missing? Someone help."
We honestly couldn't have said it better ourselves.
