We need to thank the Victorians for many of our cherished traditions at Christmas and a German favourite, the tree introduced by Prince Albert. One of the favourite parts of Christmas for me is choosing our tree, I seem to get a bigger one every year, this year being no exception it truly is a bobby dazzler and I’m sure its growing on a daily basis! We always purchase from our local forestry commission, all proceeds go back into regenerating the facilities and walkways in the area then when all the festivities are over our tree then gets recycled by our local council, planted into nearby sand dunes to prevent erosion. The smell is utterly divine and once decorated I can sit back content knowing my work is done and the enjoyment of the holidays starts. The cooking, the wrapping and everything else in between is an absolutely joy; can you tell that I love Christmas?

So whatever tree you have; be it teeny tiny or huge, real or faux, kitch or traditional, in a pot or out, or a tree that isn’t a tree; enjoy it!
