Warmest Wishes for this Holiday Season!

Everybody gets jolly in their own special way, but we all seem to agree to include the same objects and individuals: some dude called Santa, some decorated tree (inside or outside the house, real or plastic), some glamorous booze and ten million pounds of wrapping paper (a discarded pile of which can be used to hide you from prying eyes if too inebriated).

With "chestnuts roasting on an open fire" and Jack Frost nipping at your nose, you'll be all set - provided you put your red-hot credit cards in the freezer to cool them off, and made plans for stress-free holidays immediately after these ones. Best and warmest wishes to everyone! Cheer on.

This upside-down tree is good for stores with limited space. Plus you can put a lot more gift packages under the tree:

If really pressed for space, use this idea:

Dr. Seuss presents: Who-ville Christmas Tree -

400 cans of Mountain Dew and 3 months to construct it:

Grolsch bottles make a very imposing tree:

Knitted yarn tree! Made by the joint efforts of 1000 knitters:

For a book-lover:

Most expensive: a million-dollar tree made from approx. 21,000 diamonds
(One jeweler in Singapore makes it every year. Apparently, it sells)

This one is appropriately made from the dressed-up rat. The trick is to hold the mouse while decorating it:

Arrested by Stormtroopers!

According to this piece of news, Imperial stormtroopers took over the North Pole Santa's Factory today and set up the Emperor to preside over Christmas. The Emperor assured the concerned world that "Xmas will continue as planned", but Santa himself will pay for his irresponsible merry-making ways and using the Force to fly his reindeer sled.

Winter Wonderland awaits!
