'Ugly' Christmas tree in Montreal celebrates imperfection

Posted at 8:56 PM, Nov 25, 2017

The centerpiece of the Grand Christmas Market in Montreal, Canada, is a tree that looks like an elf's hat. But organizers say that the droop is deliberate.

  • In 2016, the market's Christmas tree earned international infamy due to its appearance.
  • This year, organizers decorated an entire village to celebrate the "ugly" side of life, saying that nature is perfectly imperfect.
  • One organizer, Philippe Pelletier, hopes that the ugly tree can become a Montreal tradition.
