Rotating Christmas trees: Why?
In the reception area of my workplace, there’s a Christmas tree. It is in one of those rotating stands. It sits there, all day and all night, slowly rotating at approximately 1 rpm.
It’s sooooooo 2002. Which is about when these things were in vogue and widely seen. It was one of those fads that was ubiquitous for a year or two and then gone (sort of like “chasing” Christmas lights circa 1990), except for a few places that still feel the need, like my office.
I didn’t understand it then, and I don’t understand it now. Why does anyone feel the need to make a Christmas tree rotate at 1 rpm?
