Now summer is officially done and dusted, most people have turned their attention to the biggest holiday of the year: Christmas.
Crimbo trends come and and go, but the latest one sending millennials into a festive frenzy is this new rainbow tree, set to brighten up the lives of anyone who comes across it.
The Colour Burst Rainbow Christmas Tree from Treetopia looks like it has been taken straight from an LGBTQ+ parade – and nothing says Christmas like love.
Standing at seven foot, this faux fir tree is definitely not for anyone who prefers a minimalist festive look.
But if you’re brave enough, you can head to Amazon to buy the multicoloured masterpiece in the name of Christmas spirit for a slightly eye-watering £196 ($239.99), but at least you won’t have to worry about needles dropping and you can use the tree year after year.
Those who have made the investment have taken to the retail giant’s site to sing the praises of the decorative piece, with it receiving almost exclusively five-star reviews on Amazon.

LOVE this tree!!
My favourite that I’ve ever owned! Everyone was skeptical, until they actually saw it, and that was BEFORE we even decorated it!!
I am soooooo in love with this tree! It’s so shiny looking in person! It comes in three sections. It’s so easy to put together.

This is the most awesome Christmas tree that I have ever seen and its not even decorated yet.
Meanwhile, it might be another two-and-a-bit months until Christmas comes around, but if you’re fancying decking the halls earlier this year, it could actually make you happier – according to experts.
Psychoanalyst Steve McKeown told UNILAD:
Although there could be a number of symptomatic reasons why someone would want to obsessively put up decorations early, it’s most commonly for nostalgic reasons, either to relive the magic or to compensate for past neglect.
Happy Crimbo, folks!
