Looking to celebrate Christmas a littleâ€¦differently, this year?
Then check out Neatoramaâ€™s list of The Worldâ€™s Most Unusual Christmas Trees.
Featuring the Upside Down Christmas Tree, the Mountain Dew Christmas Tree, the Worldâ€™s Most Expensive Christmas Tree, and the Giant Christmas Tree (among others), itâ€™s a great source of inspiration if the Douglas Fir just doesnâ€™t do it for you anymore.
Neatorama has a fantastic post called â€œ37 Fads That Swept The Nationâ€. Including such greats as troll dolls, telephone-booth stuffing, Pac-Man, goldfish swallowing, and ant farms, itâ€™s filled with Americana and some wonderful explanations of the history of each fad. Who would have thought the hula hoop would have been so popular (25 million sold in four months)?
