You know Christmas in London is well on the way when the enormous Christmas tree goes up in Trafalgar Square! This year, the lighting ceremony will take place on Thursday 5 December. The tree has been given to London by Norway every year since 1947 as a gesture of thanks for the UK’s help during World War 2. The stately Norwegian spruce is 20 metres high and 50-60 years old. Here’s a great time-lapse video from The Telegraph of it being installed. http://youtu.be/ztCvDa41ACI Image © Istock/shanneong
