As expected, the Christmas rally in the stock market is in full effect. (See – Christmas Rally Update…). So, to keep everyone in the Christmas spirit – The Visual History of Christmas Trees:
Some facts I found interesting:
Sears offered the first artificial tree with 55 limbs for $1.00.
1958: The first Aluminum tree (who thought this was a good idea? – Sorry metal tree lovers).
1965: A Charlie Brown Christmas caused a dip in artificial tree sales.
