From the traditional Norwegian Fir tree in Trafalgar Square to Somerset House’s giant tree, people flock to see the beautiful decorations.

Here in London, a tree in Muswell Hill sparked ridicule.
At around eight-feet tall, the puny spruce barely peeps over the wooden fence that surrounds it, prompting ridicule on social media.

Grimsby’s tree went viral on social media.
The town’s regular tree, gifted by Norway died and a mini tree was put in the town centre in its place.
