It’s important to laugh at yourself. And, that’s exactly what this year’s ‘Ugly Christmas Tree Village’ in
Whoville Montreal will be doing this holiday season, literally.
The 2nd edition of Le Village du Vilain Sapin will feature more than just an ugly, Charlie Brown-esque tree as this year’s evergreen will be ticklish.
Yes. A ticklish Christmas tree.
Motion detectors and built-in loudspeakers will be incorporated into this year’s Frankentree that will bellow out laughter when guests shake the bottom branches to tickle it.
The more people tickle the tree at the same time, the louder the tree’s laugh will become. When guests stop tickling the tree, it will let out a great sigh of relief.
The ticklish, ugly Christmas tree will be set up on November 30 and will stand tall in its unconventional beauty until December 23.
Don’t miss your chance to publicly tickle a Christmas tree, the opportunity doesn’t present itself very often.
But remember, don’t be too mean to this year’s tree, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Everybody remembers the story of the ugly duckling, right?
