This is another spread from my Christmas journal. I wanted to document the decorating of the tree and the differences I find between England and Sweden. I have been grown up with the tradition of taking in and decorating the tree on the 23rd of December. Christmas is celebrated on the 24th. You do see inside Christmas trees up before this in Sweden, but I also do think that the 23rd is probably the most common day to do your tree on.
In England not so. Here (I get the feeling?) it's a lot more "random" when you do it. I love Christmas so we do it early...last week in Nov/first in Dec. That seems to be about as early as you decorate the tree here in the UK. As you go for a walk, lots and lots of trees are up in houses by mid December. So different from Sweden and so interesting. I love it as we always get to decorate the tree twice (in different countries!) :)
