Oh Christmas Tree

The world’s most expensive Christmas tree.

This 2.4m ornament made with 40kg of  pure gold stands in a jewellery store in Tokyo and is on sale for $4.2million. Laden with handcrafted Disney characters such as Mickey Mouse, Tinkerbell and Cinderella, the tree took 10 craftsmen 2 months to complete. Any purchasers?

Will you stick to a real Christmas tree from your local seller….?

or get out the box from last year…..?

Which one’s you?

  1. I know this is terribly incorrect behaviour but nothing beats a real tree, I love the smell !

  2. That golden Christmas tree is simply awful. There is no magic, tradition or romance in it only vulgar displays of wealth and no taste.

    I’m with you MS a real one smells amazing!

  3. Why is it incorrect? The trees are cultivated to be chopped down. The wood is then recycled by the local authorities. Save your conscious. A real one is worth it any day. You can always plant it and bring it in every year. We have done that in the past and they are very easy to look after.

  4. I honestly never had a problem with a fake tree, but the authenticity of being able to go up to your tree in the middle of the night to feel the crisp crunchity part of each and every individual pine needle is just half the fun of the holidays I think… I do believe it is better for our environment though, if we tend to stay away from murdering the pines during these times of year.

  5. You are both far more tolerant than my guardian-reading colleagues! I mentioned getting a real tree at work and the reaction was as though I had just killed Santa
