Inverted Xmas Trees Explained

Unless you have inspected the Xmas catalogues that were stuffed in your letterbox this week you may not know that inverted xmas trees are for sale. If you look at my previous post with the picture you will notice that the base is different to that of its neighbour.

If you think of your standard plastic xmas tree you'll note that the very tip of the tree is very bendy and usually has trouble supporting a star (or angel if that is your preference)

I did a little research on the net to find out how this all came about and this seems like the most logical explanation I could find.

In 2005 inverted trees became popular. They were originally sold as decorations for merchants that allowed customers to get closer to ornaments being sold. Customers then wanted to replicate the inverted tree. Retailers also claimed that the trees were popular because they allowed larger presents to be placed beneath the trees.

Thanks Wikipedia.

So let me get this straight... You put the tree upside down to display your little hangy things better? So where do you actually put the star?
