Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ BRIAN XOX

 

DECORATED CHRISTMAS TREES were introduced by

Prince Albert and when one was installed in Buckingham 

Palace (1841) everyone wanted one. When I was a Child

Christmas really started when our Tree (a real one)

was decorated and the Lights switched on. Our

ceilings are not very high so it limited our Tree to six

feet. There are larger Trees in Stores and the Market

Place ! The huge Tree in Trafalgar Square is an Annual

gift from the People of NORWAY to the UK to thank us 

for liberating them from the NAZIS in WW2 !  BRIAN
