The Current Fad?

Is this some sort of new modern craze, to display your Christmas tree upside down ? I saw one of these at London Drugs and thought it was quite odd and un-natural looking (aside from the fact that the tree was fake). It's actually a 12 century central European tradition, when they would hang the fir trees from the ceiling, the triangular shape symbolizing the holy trinity and Christianity. Nowadays it's a convenient way to free up a place for sitting, posing for pictures, and of course more room for presents.
