Christmas is finally on its way, and if you haven’t already started decorating, chances are you will be soon. Maybe you already have a full-sized Christmas tree in your attic to get down or you plan on getting a fresh one this weekend. However, if you’re short on money and space and you fancy putting a tropical vibe on your holiday, why not go with a pineapple Christmas tree this year?
- These things are all the rage on Instagram. You only need to check out the #pineapplechristmastree hashtag to see how crazy everyone is going about, well, using pineapples as Christmas trees. It seems the trend started in locales where it tends to be warmer in December such as Hawaii, but it seems to have branched out from there.
- To be honest, they’re super cute. I know it’s unconventional to have a piece of fruit as a Christmas tree, but it’s also really creative and a lot of fun. I’ve seen pineapple Christmas tree ornaments before, so why not cut out the middleman and go straight in with the whole fruit as the tree itself?
- It couldn’t be more low-maintenance. Not only is it small and easy to dispose of (or, you know, eat) when you’re done, but it also comes with built-in places to hang your ornaments on the top. Since it’s round, you can even hang garland or mini lights around it if you want for a true Christmas feel.
- If you’ve been wanting something different, this is your chance. If you’re feeling like it’s been a super weird year and you want to shake things up a bit with your holiday decorations, I feel like a pineapple Christmas tree is the perfect way to do it. Not only is it totally adorable, but it will also make anyone who sees it smile. And isn’t that what the holiday is all about?
