First Christmas tree, 2018

Posted on by royvickery |

The first Christmas tree for 2018 was spotted in the Metro of 21 August, where a full-page advertisement invited potential buyers to ‘Bring home the first and ONLY Snow Globe Christmas Tree – Lights, music and art brighten your holiday.’  This can be bought ‘for just 5 interest-free instalments of £29.99 …. (plus £9.99 s&h)’.  The 21.5 inches high ornament not only lights up, and features a ‘continuous flurry of snowflakes’ in its glass globe, but also plays a medley of ‘caroling favourites’, including ‘Deck the Halls’, ‘Jingle Bells’, and ‘We Wish You A Merry Christmas’.
