1. It’s a Christmas Miracle!
Everything that Amazon touches turns to gold, right? Apparently, the holidays are no different. Starting November, the online super company will be selling live, fresh Christmas trees.

These pines will be priced around $115, and shipping should occur within 10 days of being cut down to keep them green. Forget about Santa Claus—Jeff Bezos is the next and newest Father Christmas!
