We are waiting Christmas...

Posted by
Jypyä Pop (Turku, Finland) on 3 December 2017 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

The Christmas tree in front of the Turku cathedral is celebrated as Finland's first Christmas tree. Turku is Finland's oldest city and the Archbishop's seat is in Turku. This year the Christmas tree was brought from Pöyty, a municipality close to Turku. The age of the tree is 56 years on the basis of annual rings, its height is 22 meters and weight is 2.9 tonnes. In the spruce, about 700 LEDs are lit up to January 13. Then the time of Christmas ends.

It is interesting to read how Christmas is celebreted in other countries. Sorry for my English.

@Claudiel: Do not be sorry. I myself am using a translator because I have not been taught in this language. It may be that some of your comments or responses may be strange. Aminus3 is a wonderful thing just because we can tell each other even if we are about to spend Christmas.
