PHOTOS: Twitter Shares Upside Down Christmas Trees

More and more people have been noticing a strange trend this holiday season: upside down Christmas trees.


Whether it's malls, hotels, or even online retailers, businesses are embracing the quirky take on a traditional display.

If you haven't seen an upside down tree yet, then take a look at some of these photos that Twitter users have shared.

Here's a beautifully-decorated one that was spotted at the Westfield San Francisco Centre mall:

Here's another from what looks like another mall, complete with upside down presents and miniature train set:

And another by German fashion designer and creative director for Chanel and Fendi, Karl Lagerfeld, for Claridge's, a London hotel:

"We believe this magical take on his childhood memories captures the spirit of the season perfectly and adds a sense of fun and glamour to our lobby," Claridge's general manager Paul Jackson told The Caterer.

Twitter wasn't quite so impressed:

NBC7 correspondent Danielle Radin shared a video with shots of a massive upside down tree at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego, asking: "This #Christmas tree at the Hotel Del Coronado is upside down! Some find it artistic while others say it's disrespectful. What do you think?"

While not everyone felt like the upside down tree was all that impressive, most didn't seem to think the tree was "disrespectful":

In fact, they weren't even sure who would find an upside down tree disrespectful:

Some would even say the tree is kind of practical:

But that practicality will cost you a pretty penny.

Target is selling their own version of the upside down Christmas tree, which you can purchase online for a hefty $989.21.

And that's just while it's on sale:

This new trend seems to have disaster written all over it when people attempt to recreate it at home. But hey, at least it looks kind of cool when done well.
