Hello innovators and patent enthusiasts,

Welcome back to Patently Yours and Merry Christmas to those celebrating today!  Christmas Tree patents were delightfully abundant, making it difficult to select only a handful of gems.  Here is the last fun Christmas Tree patent along with my cheeky review.  Check in next week for a new festive patent search.  Happy holidays and keep innovating!

Did you ever wish there was a way to really make that Christmas Tree sparkle?  Have you ever looked at your dull, static tree and thought, “If only those ornaments and tinsel could actively shimmer…”  Well, at least one person has, and he felt so passionate about it that he patented this misleadingly naughty sounding Christmas Tree vibrator.  Perhaps he wanted to bring a little extra Christmas cheer after World War II.

I personally feel that a non-vibrating Christmas Tree is drab and lifeless and so blasé.  This invention should become a holiday staple, nay, a year-round staple to elevate your garden and your indoor plants.  Of course, the commercial market has yet to catch on, so, you would have to construct one from scratch if you were as excited as I am about this Christmas Tree vibrator.  Just be sure that your wiring is safely insulated, again, to prevent the dreadful, Christmas-cheer-snuffing Christmas Tree fire.

P.S. Some have suggested an alternate (and actually practical) purpose for this Christmas Tree vibrator (fourth time I wrote this, and it still makes me giggle).  If you had a motion sensor, the vibration may be a deterrent for curious pets, particularly those who climb.
