We’ve a great Christmas treat for you! It won’t be long now until Christmas and what better way to celebrate, than with our Tree-mendous Christmas resources?

Explore details about the very first Christmas tree in the UK, look at modern dilemmas, such as whether families should buy an artificial tree or a real tree, and what happens to our trees when we dispose of them.

Before we get to the resources though, did you know…

The annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony takes place in Trafalgar Square in London each year and is watched by thousands. The tree, gifted to Britain by the Norwegian Government to say thank you for our support in World War II, is decorated in Norwegian style, with 500 white lights hung vertically down it.

Now you know a bit more about trees, let’s check out our resources

Fact Sheets
