Nothing New Under the Sun

What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.
Ecclesiastes 1:9

When I first heard of Upside-Down Christmas trees, I was skeptical. A co-worker, known to exaggerate greatly, told me of them one day a few weeks ago. Sure enough, they exist. Stranger still, is that the tradition of hanging Christmas trees from the ceiling goes back to 12th Century Europe. Click on the tree at left to read more. This kind of throwback comes at a hefty price... $599 + $65 shipping.

personally i think the end is near, when people start buying inverted Christmas trees so they can fit more presents under it.
