Re: Good things that come out of this pandemic...

Norway is shipping a Christmas tree to Trafalger square London as usual, the same procedure every year James! They just cut it!

Not even Covid-19 could save the tree ;-( 

Cant they just plant a small pine tree growing into big tree in Trafalgar square, and put on Christmas decorations once a year?
