     People using pineapples instead of Christmas trees!

This year, pineapples are making a comeback – as a replacement of Christmas trees. 

People are saying goodbye to the traditional bauble embellished branches for large pineapples, decorated in fairy lights and ornaments. 

Baubles are being hung from the head of the pineapple to create a Christmas tree effect. and we’ve got to admit, we’re in love with the idea.
Not only is it a super cheap alternative to Christmas trees, it’s more interesting than a tiny tree and both smells and tastes better. People have been taking to Instagram to debut their pineapple trees, and we’ve rounded up a few of our favourites.

Massive earthquake hits Mexico

The death toll has risen to at least 58 after a massive earthquake hit Mexico.
The 8.1 magnitude quake late on Thursday (local time) was stronger than a devastating 1985 temblor that flattened swathes of Mexico City and killed thousands.
Damage to the city was limited as the quake was deeper and further from the capital.
Elsewhere in the country, the quake tore through buildings, forced mass evacuations and triggered alerts as far away as Southeast Asia.
The southern town of Juchitan in Oaxaca state, near the epicenter, was hit particularly hard, with sections of the town hall, a hotel, a bar and other buildings reduced to rubble.
Thousands of people in coastal areas were evacuated as a precaution when the quake sparked tsunami warnings.
Waves rose as high as 0.7m in Mexico, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said, though that threat passed

New kind of chocolate invented

A chocolate firm says they have invented a fourth type of chocolate after milk, dark and white – the first new type in 80 years.
Swiss chocolate giant Barry Callebaut says it used the ruby cocoa bean to create a confectionery with “berry-fruitiness and luscious smoothness.”
The new chocolate, named Ruby after its characteristic red colour.
It is only the fourth ever type to be created since the white version in the 1930s.
Time will tell if it will become a new type of chocolate as widespread as the others. One thing in its favour is that it has been made by the largest manufacturer of both chocolate and cocoa products
