This is the Christmas tree at the Trafalgar Square.
Every year a Norwegian Spruce tree which is donated by Norway is sent to London for Christmas. These trees are usually of a formidable height. Measuring no less than 20-30 meters in height. It is usually 60-70 years old. During the Yuletide, it is resplendent in a charming array of lights and decorations. Thousands of people gather here for tree lightning ceremony on the first Thursday of December, every year.
At the base of the tree stands a plaque, bearing the words:
This tree is given by the city of Oslo as a token of Norwegian gratitude to the people of London for their assistance during the years 1940-45.
I am writing to express my opinion, share my experiences and to maybe provide some insight. My blog is addressing women at 50 ( but men are welcome to read my posts) ,their issues and the questions that come up at this stage in life. I don’t aim to teach, but to learn together.
