Inventive Christmas decorations for computer geeks

Christmas is upon us, and like the geeks we are here at Pingdom, we couldn’t help but check out how our fellow geeks worldwide are handling their Christmas decorations. We found some very cool examples where people have put together über-geeky Christmas trees, wreaths and other decorations. And then of course there’s that Christmas tree network monitoring system…

Now embrace both your inner geek and your Christmas spirit, and keep scrolling down. 🙂
