Can we hang ornaments on a mango tree?

Some random thoughts as the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons approach:
~I am reminded that this may be our last Thanksgiving and Christmas on American soil for several years.
~I am a bit stuck on the whole Christmas tree thing. Should we shop the post Christmas sales (which actually happen before Christmas, go figure.) for a little artifical tree that can fit in a suitcase? What about all the ornaments? And lights?
~There is a balance of thought between what is sentimental, eternal, traditional and comfortable.
~I wonder if we can use a palm tree or a mango tree...how will the snowflake ornaments look on a tropical tree???
