Crafted from four fake Christmas trees, chicken wire, green mesh, and a fog machine, Treezilla -- a smoke-breathing Godzilla tree -- is really something to behold! Its creator, Steven Newland of New Zealand, recently sold it in auction for $415 NZD (approx. $269.58 USD). A bargain!
It's really something. Watch it in action:
And, apparently, Steven is going to reveal his latest Christmas tree masterpiece soon, according to the questions and answers section of the auction.
We have a xmas revealing party at mid December with mates for this years tree. I don't want to give it away, but we now have a 10month baby so now I have a prop?
Color me intrigued.

Cat lovers who celebrate Christmas, your tree prayers may have been answered. Argos, a UK retailer is selling six-foot-tall "half parasol trees" with the description, "Keep your perfectly placed baubles, bows and bells out of reach of curious, crawling kids or your cats' playful paws."
That means no more of these kinds of shenanigans (dangit):
Argos' half trees cost £33.33 (about $43) and their flocked half trees cost £37.50 ($48).

British grocer Iceland (yes, that's really its name) is not messing around with "autumn" and "pumpkin spice." How pedestrian! They're headed straight for the taste of December 25th with their "Luxury Christmas Tree Flavour Salted Hand-Cooked Crisps." Yup, they've made potato chips that taste like pine trees.
What gives the chips, sorry crisps, that distinctive Christmas tree flavor? Pine salt and pine oil, according to the ingredients.
A bag costs just £1 (approx. $1.30) but it's only available in the UK (for now).
