Decorating homes with an upside down Christmas tree

It is assumed that the top of the tree will be thinnest as it grows up and so during holiday season of Christmas this is how the Christmas tree is represented. A new fad that has been spreading fast is to use an upside down Christmas tree.

Its history goes back to the seventh century when Christianity was being preached to the masses by a German monk. The shape of a triangle was used by him to depict the Holy Ghost, Son and Father. This type of tree was being used widely by the 12th century. The same style of the tree as symbol of Christianity was used by this monk to preach to the Pagans.

In modern times during Christmas celebrations these trees can be found in a number of stores. Different types of gifts and ornaments are given as present by one person to another. Showing of all these decorations can be done better when the tree is upside down.
