Nerd Alert! You need a Christmas tree for your car!

How to make your commute more festive.

The Christmas Car Tree

What makes this product truly nerdy is that you have to be kind of a nerd to drive around with a lit up Christmas tree on your car roof. A PR company recently sent me a sample of the aptly named Christmas Car Tree and, natch, I had to, er, test drive it.

It’s easy to assemble, solidly made (it’s got a metal, bolt-together frame), and unless you're driving a Ferrari, this 30-inch tree isn’t going to come loose. The Christmas Car Tree has 70 LEDs in multiple colors and can be folded flat so you can get into low garages.

At $130 it’s not cheap but in the first hour of driving around town with Christmas tree on my car roof, I’d been photographed at least twice, waved at, stared at, and smiled at. If you want to bring some cheer to your commute, the Christmas Car Tree is what you need. Now I just need a Santa Hat and an ugly Christmas sweater for the full Seasonal Monty.
