Every year, the country of Norway gives a Christmas tree to the city of London as a thank you for their support during the Second World War. This is the most famous Christmas tree in England and every year it is placed on Trafalgar Square. A few years ago, someone compared it to a cucumber, but in 2019, things are getting worse!
Have you ever heard about Spelacchio? That was the name of the Christmas tree in Rome at Piazza Venezia after it looked absolutely terrible and almost without fur and branches a few years ago. This years Christmas tree at the Trafalgar square can for sure be compared to Spelacchio in Rome.
If you see it in the darkness with the lights turned on, it doesn’t look that bad. Just take a look.
But, if you take a look at the following tweet made during daytime, you will see that the quality of the tree might not be the best.
Some people wonder why the Norwegians have kept the best trees to themselves, why others wonder what the English people have done to make the Norwegians so angry?
Another person said he “thought the Norwegians left the trolls behind in Norway,” while someone suggested a “plastic surgery” for the tree in order to make it look nicer.
However, the general audience is just grateful for the tree. If you come to London, make sure to check out the Christmas tree at Trafalgar square and have a wonderful time!
