11. Spinning Fiber Optic Tree [link]
Fiber Optic Christmas trees have been around for a while now, and unfortunately most of them are so ugly and gawdy that no one with a respectable sense of style and decor would ever put them up.

Be warned though, it?s probably a good idea to not hang ornaments from this tree.
