OK, here's how you do this. 1) Find a suitable Christmas tree or set of lights.
2) Set your camera to "Night Shooting" mode, or the shutter speed to a couple of seconds.
3) Hold the camera in front of the tree and focus on the nearest light.
4) Click the shutter
5) Just before the shutter is about to open, toss the camera up in front of the tree with a flick of your wrist so that it spins in the air while the lens remains pointing at the lights.
6) Catch the camera before it falls!
Another great way to avoid doing anything meaningful and productive so you can waste time on Flickr!
