Hi all,
It is that time of the year. I thought I would be nice to see christmas trees from around the world.

Try to keep the images small ie 640 x 480 and limit it to one post. This should help keep things under control.

Look forward to seeing some pretty pines.
This is ours, we have a small flat in Sydney city so plastic has to do

In the US in the late 50's through the 60's, there were these artificial silver tinny trees that had this motorized wheel had different color filters on it that a light shined through. You kept this contraption at the base of the tree and it changed the tree's colors as it rotated. ...as bizarre and gawdy as it sounds. Mind you, the tree was 100% silver... looked like it was made out of tin-foil. I LOVED it.

I called it the "Dr. Timothy Leary Artificial X-Mas Tree". I'm sure I can find one of these things cheap on eBay but my wife absolutely FORBIDS me to do it.

We're putting ours up today (...not a Timothy Leary tree) I'll post some pics... great idea.
