Christmas tree is almost ready ...

Posted by
Jypyä Pop (Turku, Finland) on 28 November 2019 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

The Christmas tree of Turku has been brought about 20 kilometers from the yard of a house. It was 43 years old, 22 meters high, weighed 3,500 kilograms and had a body thickness of 68 cm. The lights are installed on the fir tree and they burn from the first Advent until January 13. Then, according to Finnish tradition, the evil Nuutti takes Christmas away.

Hello everybody. It is fine that You will see my pictures. I do not know English very well. Therefore, it may be some comments or answers seem strange. I'm trying to learn more. Thank you for your understanding.

That's a huge tree. But, I guess they are quite large every year. ;-)

@Steve Rice: You are right. The trees are often found in the yards of the houses they want to be removed from because they are afraid of being stormed by the storm or otherwise become too overbearing to the small yards
