Flickr Friday – Christmas trees around the world

In this week’s Flickr Friday, we’re taking a look at Christmas trees in cities across the world.  Many urban centres try to outdo each another with the biggest, brightest and most cleverly designed Christmas trees that their top creative minds can come up with. A lot of the time there’s also a story behind them; like the tree in London’s Trafalgar Square which has been donated to the city by Norway every year since 1947, for services rendered in the Second World War.

Please enjoy this collection of festive and arboreal images, and have a joyful weekend.
