Oh Christmas Tree, oh Christmas Tree.
Evergreen conifers to celebrate Christmas have been popular in Germany since the 15th and 16th century; evergreen wreaths and boughs were used by the Egyptians, Chinese and Hebrews going back to pagan times. In Britain Christmas Trees have been popular since Queen Victoria and Prince Albert married in 1841 but were actually introduced here by Queen Charlotte the wife of King George lll.
On a more modest level this is our tree this year, I put the lights on and then Mrs Sixwheeler makes it look lovely. Finally I put our fairy, who looks like Helena Bonham-Carter, on the top. I think it’s one of our best.
