What is more quintessentially 60’s modern kitsch than the aluminum Christmas tree? I mean, who would take something as wonderful and traditional as the beautiful, green, sweet smelling live tree and replace it with a space age, tinsel cone that you can’t put lights on without the danger of electrocution?
The futuristic marketers of the 60’s of course.
And I have to say that despite the fact that they smell like musty plastic and the oh-so-necessary color wheel light makes the living room look like a slow motion disco, I love these things. I may even buy one this year.
These days, you can even get them with lights.
