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.
