Traditionally people decorate their trees on Christmas Eve - that is December 24th. They hang lights and coloured balls on the branches and put a star at the top. They lay presents under the Christmas tree. Young children are told that Santa Claus will bring them presents if they are good. Children hang a Christmas stocking at the foot of their beds or near the fireplace. They often borrow one of their father's golf socks because they are the biggest. Santa Claus is supposed to come in the night from Lapland. He climbs down the chimney and fills the stockings with presents.

The tradition of using a fir-tree for winter celebrations is very old. We know that there were trees decorated with toys in Roman times. Later it become part of the celebrations of the Christian Christmas. The German Prince Albert, Queen Victoria's husband, brought this tradition to England. He and the Queen had a Christmas tree at Windsor Castle in 1841. A few years after nearly every house in the country had a Christmas tree.

At Christmas a giant fir-tree stands in Trafalgar Square in front of the National Gallery. It is a present from the people of Norway. Every winter they cut down a tree and sent it to London.

Whole families come to look at it. Here is a Christmas tree bigger than any they have seen in their lives.
