I know Christmas is over, thankfully over.

I’m not one for Christmas but some traditions that take place at this time are amazing to me.

Such as the Christmas tree erected in Trafalgar Square, London each year.

It is a 50-60 year old Norwegian Spruce of 20 metres tall donated each year by the people of Oslo, Norway to the people of Britain every year since 1947 in gratitude for Britain’s support during the second world war.

Below is the first Christmas tree in 1947.
