Unique Christmas Trees

that caught my eyes. I’ll start with one with a history that goes way back, further than the normal right side up ones we usually see.

During the 7th century, a monk from Devonshire spent time there preaching the word of God. Like any good instructor, he used props. The story goes that he used the triangular shape of the Fir tree to describe the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit that makes up the Holy Trinity. By the 12th century, the Fir tree was being hung upside down from ceilings in Central Europe as a symbol of Christianity at Christmas time.

They were said to be hung upside down to symbolize that the tree was not merely a home decor item, but in fact held a significant meaning.

And here’s one that I really liked. It’s not exactly a tree, but it works for me.

This one is quite different but equally eye-catching!


A minimalistic approach.

And one for the geeks ♥
