All Praise Janet Yellen: People are Paying $1,000 for Upside Down Christmas Trees

Upside down Christmas trees are sprouting up at hotels and department stores, on sale for upwards of $500 at Target and Home Depot, reports The New York Post.

The trees are hung from the ceiling with the top of the tree touching the ground.

Kohl’s has a 7.5-foot one that comes pre-lit for $450 and one in the same size without lights is a little more than $1,000 at Target.

You just know this wouldn't happen without Janet Yellen printing mad money. I wouldn't pay $1,000 for a Christmas tree if it was standing right side up.



  1. This story about the upside down Christmas tree reminds me of one of Al Gore’s lines in the 2000 Presidential debates that he used to describe the economy, and one that describes much of our culture today, “Everything that should be up is down, and everything that should be down is up”.

  2. I challenge you to publish just how many Americans are paying $450 and up for a Christmas tree. I bet not many. It is cute idea, but I am not convinced that it represents a inflationary prosperity bubble of any kind.
