The key to celebrating Christmas is to bring cheer and joy to those loved ones that will near and far. This can be done in a unique way with tropical décor. Instead of Santa in a snow sled you can have him riding a sky jet. The evergreen and firs that are the traditional Christmas trees of the north can be transferred into palm trees of the topics. These have the ability to have Christmas lights on them as well. For those living in the tropics, the use of Bamboo as a plant to hang Christmas lights on also occurs.

Another reason some people use a pink flamingo ornament on their Christmas tree is to just be funny. This is done by grandparents to play a prank on the grand children. It is so funny when a young one, about the age of 4 notices it. They assume something is wrong and make a big fuss about it.
