The biggest Christmas tree I ever saw was my cousins’ tree in their living room. Because they turned an old school building into a home, their living room ceiling was at least eighteen feet, if not more. And my cousins always wanted a real tree.
One Christmas, they bought a tree that was too big for the room. Somehow, they fit the tree through the doors and leaned it up on one side.
It looked kinda like this:
I guess this Christmas the budget was cut in half, because we only have half a tree pic.twitter.com/Ybw9UR3dXp

But what if you could have a 20-foot tree that went through the roof?! That’s what one couple from Portland, Oregon must have thought recently.
They bought a ginormous tree and cut the tree into two 10-foot pieces. They decorated the top half and placed it on the roof. Because their humble abode had a large glass window looking into the living room, neighbors could see the bottom half inside the house. The lovely couple positioned the top half directly above the bottom half so that it looked like the tree is going through the roof.
So this year we bought a 20 ft Christmas tree and cut it in half so it goes through the roof 😂 pic.twitter.com/ZGIOYmPM59

It may be too late for this year, but starting planning for next Christmas. If you live in a single-story house with a large picture window, you can be the talk of the town!
Here are a couple more ideas you can use for your future Christmas tree projects:
- Star Wars themed, with Darth Vader covering the entire tree
- Egg cartons
- Old books
- Draw a tree on the wall
- Put it upside down and make it look like it’s going through a portal
And in the meantime, kudos to this couple for this funny Christmas display.
