Bring the kids down! But don't let 'em touch nuthin'.

Time to put the presents under the tree! Oh no, that tree looks like a limp dick!

Treevenge

Trevenge depicts Christmas from the perspective of sentient Christmas trees. After being hacked down and shipped to homes, they are subject to "humiliation" by humans, who decorated them and make them stand in their living rooms. The Christmas trees have had enough, and go on to massacre and kill an entire town as part of their uprising.

Note to self: invest in a deadbolt.

When Brandon left for camp, his last words were, "stay out of my room!" Unfortunately for Brandon, he has the meanest most awesome family in the entire world. [more inside]

"But we were happy. We had a nice Jewish Christmas. We were content."

Neil Gaiman wants a Christmas tree, just one problem, he's Jewish. And he's not the only one debating this issue. There's a discussion over at slate.com on whether or not Jews should own a Christmas tree.

Upside-Down Christmas Trees - Demand is growing. The media seems to have caught on to the trend...playing right into the hands of the sellers. Get yours today (if they haven't already sold out), for a mere $599.95. On one hand, it seems like a good space-saving idea. On the other, how much more commercial can Christmas get? "Target has three such upside-down trees on its website, touting their best attribute: 'Leaves more room on the floor for gifts!'"

Fa la la la la... la la la la.

The history of the Christmas tree began in Germany. They are a fairly recent tradition in America, a country which first shunned any "frivolity" over the sacred holidays until Queen Victoria made Christmas trees cool. The American addition of electric Christmas lights, on the other hand, is a fairly recent tradition in Germany, a country where Christmas tree candles are still in use. Even in 2004, electric Christmas lights are used far less extensively in Europe than America... but maybe someday they'll want to be cool like us, too.

Bluetooth Christmas Tree

The Tate Britain Christmas Tree
Every year the Tate Britain art gallery invites an artist to design a Christmas Tree to put on display. This year, artist Richard Wentworth has incorporated a bluetooth receiver into his tree. Files sent to the tree, or uploaded via the web, will be "unwrapped" online on Christmas Day.
