Below you will see a collection of the weirdest Christmas trees created by famous brands and designers.
According to a joke, fake Christmas decorations differ from the real ones only because they bring no joy. The same can be said about fake Christmas trees. Of course, they can look very nice, but they will never match the odor of the pine tree needles.
However, there is no better advertising or information medium during the Christmas and New Year season. Users from around the world watch the photos of the most unusual trees.
