This is our Christmas tree in Germany for this year. From what I learned most Germans put their tree up on Christmas Eve, the children go to bed and on Christmas morning the magic of Christmas begins. They also put real candles on their trees and light them for short periods of time, I have fire issues so I put candle lights on. I have never really had a chance to see a German tree, since they put them up so late and we are in the States by then. I'm pretty sure we are the only ones in Bremen with a fake tree! But my house is decorated and it feels like the holidays are upon us.
How about you did you get your tree up?
