Seen as the Gastaldi Elves spend an awful lot of December whizzing around Monaco delivering, decorating and dancing around Christmas trees, we thought we’d share a few little interesting festive tree facts!
In ancient times people hung evergreen boughs over their doors and windows, many believing that they would keep away witches, ghosts, evil spirits, and illness!
Originally, candles were used to decorate Christmas trees (err, hello, fire hazard!) to represent the stars in the night sky.
Every year, since 1947, the enormous tree in London’s Trafalgar square is given to the UK by the city of Oslo, Norway.
So there you have it, a little bit of festive trivia to impress your loved ones with this Christmas around the dinner table!
