Christmas tree trends are like brush fires. They happen every year, flame brightly for a moment and then disappear in a blaze of glory... or to the basement, where all ignominious and ill-planned mistakes are retired, so they may never again see the light of day or offend their makers with gross reminders of their stupidity.
Remember when tinsel trees were a trend?

There's also the matter of upside down trees, a more recent trend.
