Trafalgar Square Christmas tree!

Today at 6pm the Norwegian Christmas tree is being lit!:)

The Trafalgar Square Christmas tree has been an annual gift to the people of London by the city of Oslo each year since 1947 as gratitude for British support of occupied Norway during the Second World War.

The tree has provided a central focus for the Trafalgar Square traditional carol- singing programme, performed by different groups raising money for voluntary or charitable organisations.
The tree remains until just before the twelfth night of christmas when it is taken down for recycling.
The Christmas tree is decorated in a traditional Norwegian way with 500 white lights.
This Year the tree is 22 meters high.
