Will you be trying out this strange trend next year?

Christmas 2021 has been a special one for many people who were forced to spend the festive period away from their loved ones in 2020 due to the pandemic.

Because of this, people have been going all-out with their Christmas decorations, including the most integral element of the festive season – the tree.

While some people like to adorn their fern trees with colour coordinated baubles, others like to let their trees show the personality of the household.

And others like to try something completely different – like an 'invisible' Christmas tree.

Yes, you read that right – people are experimenting with a new trend which involves no tree at all.

The trend sees people ditch the tree all together, and simply hang baubles from the ceiling in the shape of a tree, creating what looks like an 'invisible' tree.

One Reddit user, Browndog888, shared a picture of this gold and red tree on the forum page, writing: "My kind of Christmas tree".

However, not everyone was a fan of the unique look, with many pet-owners pointing out that it would be chaos for them.

One person commented on the picture: "My cats would destroy that in seconds haha. Very artsy tho!"

Another wrote: "Someone closing a door too hard and causing a breeze in the house would destroy this too."

Some people, however, were huge fans of the Christmas tree trend, with one person pointing out that an 'invisible' tree would mean no hoovering up pine needles.

Another person thought that the look was "cool", but didn't hold the same effect as a real tree has, commenting: "It’s cool but a poor substitute for the ambiance a normal tree brings."
