Artificial Christmas Tree Madness continues

Our festival of fake Christmas tree photos comes to an end with this last post's worth of beautiful, old pics from a time when Kodachrome film and low quality printing produced such photos full of kitschmas loveliness. We learned some fun facts about artificial Christmas trees and enjoyed many old photos of fake Christmas trees. Hopefully we'll do it again next year.

Just a child with their dog, walking through a snowy landscape, looking for that perfect artificial Christmas tree.

Another idyllic, wintery tableau of fake Christmas trees.

Kitschmas Tree Festival (cont'd)

Do I ever tire of old photos of fake Christmas trees.


And so we continue with more artificial Christmas trees, celebrating the kitschier side of Christmas.

The pinkish white fake tree above is a bit odd, no? You could pull off a branch and clean your bathroom with one of those. And what a lovely, tainted meat color too.

Lovely gold tree with blue balls.

Yes, you're right! That's Vincent Price posing with his prized artificial Christmas tree. Or something like that. It's a festive sight indeed.
