Want to impress the neighbors or just make them insanely jealous for no reason, then you’ve got to get a big tree, bro.

That’s just what this Twitter user claims to have done. He and his family went out and bought a big tree — too big in fact. The tree didn’t fit in their living room, but that wasn’t their plan. they cut it in half and stuck the second half on the roof, creating the illusion that the tree goes through the roof. It’s a lot easier than raising the roof, right kids? Kids still say that, right? Please tell me they do.

How bad do you have to be for Santa to bring you a venomous snake instead of coal?

A woman in Melbourne, Victoria, Austrailia found a poisonous tiger snake in her Christmas tree on Sunday. This strange recreation of the story of Eve in the Garden of Eden was not done on purpose. According to the BBC, “the reptile entered through an open door before curling up among the decorations.”

This may not have been the woman’s first rodeo, though, as she seemed to know exactly what to do, leaving the room, jamming the door with a towel, and calling for help.

Mostly protected in the United States, tiger snakes usually live around the coast, but the snake wrangler said he’s found snakes in “ugg boots, washing machines, dog kennels, cat boxes, toilets, kitchen cupboards and bookcases.”

The 12 days of Christmas are getting scarier every year.

The Running Christmas Tree is the latest revolutionary wearable device to have been developed by Tokyo-based inventor Joseph Tame.

This mobile seasonal illumination device has been designed to disrupt the illumination industry by allowing for on-demand illumination - simply pull out your phone and summon the Christmas tree anytime, anywhere, and Joseph will head in your direction to bring some light into your life.

Featuring over 1500 LEDs, 9 mico-controlers and 100 batteries, this 25kg / 2.5metre tree is unlike anything seen before, and has been a huge hit on the streets of Tokyo where the service was first rolled out.

Full information on the tree and links to book it for yourself can be found a: http://tokyoxmas.org

A 50-foot Norwood spruce in Reading, PA is the focus of ridicule this holiday season, with locals calling it "sad," "nasty," "pathetic," "ugly" and even comparing it to Charlie Brown's disaster of a tree.

"If there was a squirrel right now looking for a place to live in the Winter," said one resident. "It won't even go into this tree."

"I've never seen a tree look so horrible in all my life," said another person. "That tree is atrocious."

Don't hold anything back Reading...

As a result of all the outrage, city officials decided the thing needed to be put out of its misery, and after raising money from local businesses, it is scheduled to be replaced this week.
