Jingle Bells

They're real French Christmas trees..........at a price that would be expected for such an import. Obviously won't appeal to most of us.......but FYI for those who might want the real deal.

Find it hard to understand ..... If you are going to all the bother of importing xmas trees from Europe why on earth dont you import Norwegian spruce trees?

IKEA Bangna has been known to import real Christmas trees in 2 sizes and if I recall, they were a helluva lot cheaper. It included a buy-back so that the locals weren't tempted to toss them away which apparently buggers up land fills in Europe. Not sure if there's sufficient quantity of throwaway trees to bugger up a Bangkok land fill but there you go. I don't recall they had any great advertising of the event beyond in-store advertising and word-of-mouth but apparently it was a roaring success.

Here's a 2015 news article about it.
