Celebrating Christmas around the world.
A Christmas PowerPoint Presentation of Christmas Tree Lights
Will and Guy invite you to enjoy Christmas trees lights from cities around the world. Latvia in the 16th century seems an unlikely place for the Christmas tree tradition to start, however it is pretty far north and thus
would have the snow and suitable evergreen trees.
Thereafter, the Germans enthusiastically decorated Christmas trees and it is here that we see the first examples of tinsel. Indeed, it was the
Georgian kings who introduced the custom to England in the 18th century, and then in the 1840s it was Prince Albert who made Christmas trees popular for the masses.
Trafalgar Square, London
From about 1895, Christmas trees lights started replacing real wax candles and coloured glass. The infuriating design is where the bulbs are in series, one bulb blows and they all go out. Fortunately,
modern outdoor Christmas lights are designed with parallel circuitry, thus if one bulb blows the rest stay lit.
Celebrating Christmas around the world - American style.
It is likely that it was early German immigrants who introduced Christmas trees to America. One of the earliest records is to be found in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Another age old theme is who enjoys
the Christmas tree the most? Is it the Children, or their parents who buy it and decorate with tinsel and lights, that really appreciate the tree?

What a beautifully composed shot. Christmas tree lights, that star, the church and a modern touch, the time-lapse effect of the car's lights.
Will and Guy would love such a tree, and such a
snowfall outside our house - it would make Christmas complete.

Far more Canadians, Americans and Britons will celebrate Christmas on
Saturday with artificial Christmas trees in their houses than real ones,
according to a survey released on after Christmas 2010.
Sixty two percent of Britons, 58 percent of Canadians and 53 percent of
Americans use artificial trees, while only about 16 percent of Americans and
Canadians and 14 percent of Britons use fresh trees, according to poll done
by Angus Reid Public Opinion. More than a quarter of the people surveyed
in each country said they did not plan to have a tree at all, the survey
Most artificial tree users cited convenience as their motivation, and a
third felt it was better for the environment, according to the polling firm.
Tradition was the main motivation for users of real trees, and more than
a quarter of fresh-tree buyers felt their decision was the better
The poll was conducted online between December 14th and 17th , with
opinions sought from the 1,000 Canadians, 1,005 Americans and 2,003 Britons
who are part of Angus Reid's regular political survey forums in the three
Family Have Had Same Christmas Tree for 74 years
Valerie Hill's Christmas tree is 74-years-old.
Valerie Hill and her family have put up their Christmas tree - for the
74th year running.
Valerie Hill, 74, was given the 0.9m (3ft) tree when she was three by her
uncle John Herbert Martin, who was killed soon after World War II broke out
He had given the tree to Valerie, his favourite niece, as hostilities
erupted in August as he knew he would be away fighting the Germans at
Christmas; however, the Royal Navy seaman became one of the first fatalities
of the war in a tragic "friendly fire" incident, killed when his submarine
was sunk after being mistaken for a Nazi U-boat.
The mother-of-two and gran-of-four from Norwich said: 'I make sure the
tree is up in the window by December 1 every year. I like to enjoy it for as
long as I can. We put the tree up every year and I have never missed a year,
not even through the blackouts in the war. It means everything to me and I'd
never miss putting it up for Christmas.' A remarkable and lovely story
echo Will and Guy.
