Christmas is quickly approaching and there's a lot of stuff to be done! So, just before Christmas kids have gotten busy writing their letters to Santa and people have started to wrap up all of their work, in order to have a completely relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

Along with lots and lots of gift shopping for their loved ones, people are also buying and decorating beautiful Christmas trees to show off and display in their houses.

Christmas trees are the highlight of the holiday’s decorations and people keep experimenting with them. Some prefer having simple yet funny Christmas trees while others want them to be larger than life. Among the latter, there’s a Seattle architect who has kept a balance; but somehow has managed to come up with one of the most bizarre Christmas trees ever!

Patrick Kruger has put up a Christmas tree that bursts right through the roof of his house, or at least he makes his neighbors think that’s what happened.

Kruger, 41, bought a 14-foot-tall Christmas tree last Saturday and placed it in the front window of the Seattle home that he shares with his wife, Maggie, and 4-year-old son, Miles.

Before putting it up, he cut the top six feet of the tree and placed the tree top on his home's roof, making it appear as though the tree had crashed through the roof.

"We lived in a two-story house years ago and did a tree that was both on the first and second floors, a 20-foot-tree that we cut in half," Kruger told ABCNews.com. "Now we live in a smaller house so I thought let me put it through the roof."

Kruger and his wife spent nine hours on Saturday, in the rain, to pull the stunt off and to make it look realistic. He also built a platform on the roof to make it look like the tree had actually burst through it!

Kruger, by pulling off this Christmas tree illusion has delighted his son and the neighborhood as well. "They have a big smile on their face and that was the objective," he said.
