giant Godzilla Christmas Tree certainly made a grand impression when it mauled the mall back in the year 2000. Yes, over a decade ago... old news is so exciting!

Around a quarter of a century ago, I remember the thrill of seeing the skeleton of a (real) Tyrannosaurus Rex in the Natural History Museum in London and standing, awestruck, staring at that mouth with teeth like steak knives.....

The quote was from the linked article, and this is (was?) in Tokyo. I'd never heard of it until this thread in spite of my country of residence, at which time I googled "godzilla christmas tree" to answer my own questions which paralleled those in post 2 of this thread. My post was for informational purposes only and not reflective of my opinion on the tree, holiday, or Godzilla movies.

I once had a FireWire hub made from a Godzilla toy. It also had lights. I liked it.

Nah, don't worry.

Sometimes, on these fora, threads are resurrected, or things are posted which first appeared aeons ago, unbeknown to the rest of us. Never mind, I liked it, whether old or new. and thought it perfectly charming (though, I'd probably draw the line at having it in my living room.....)

That's cool. It is funny how just putting Christmas lights on something can make it festive no matter how menacing or creepy it is.

Case in point...
