Upside Down Christmas Tree

We buy fresh Christmas trees every year - no fake ones for us ;)  We also hang it upside down - it's been our tradition for 4 years now:

Top 10 reasons why:
 1. It's different . . .plus we love the look of it!
 2. Less pine needles fall for some reason - but if they do - much easier to vacuum them up!
 3. Lots of room to move around the tree because the bulky base is on the ceiling.
 4. No spilt water from bumping the tree stand and no refilling it either.
 5. Easier to hang from the ceiling than try to make it straight in the tree stand.
 6. Ornaments hang better.
 7. It spins!  Easier to hang lights, beads and ribbon. 
 8. All the presents fit under the tree.
 9. People always comment . . .and we like the attention ;)
10. Easier to bag up and remove from the house.

How do you keep it watered?

We drill a hole in the middle of the base of the trunk of the tree - it only has a tiny bit of water and it does the trick!
