No tree? No problem! This holiday season it’s all about the Christmas pineapple (seriously).

The trend of decorating a pineapple for the holidays seems to have appeared on Pinterest last year, but it's making an even stronger comeback this season.

While we know some people might have a hard time breaking with tradition, there are some major pros to giving the pineapple tree a try. It’s ideal for small spaces, a perfect way to add a little holiday cheer to any office desk and, best of all, there is no clean-up of pine needles needed!

Whether you decide to decorate your pineapple with mini lights, ornaments, sunglasses or a Santa hat, it’s an easy and fun way to incorporate a little tropical flair to your holiday decor.

If you’re not someone who is ready to give up the tree, there are plenty of other ways to get in on the pineapple trend this holiday season.

Try the trend!
