An unofficial seasonal challenge. Can anyone produce a photo of a town centre tree worse than my town's?

It might look even better with the lights on.

:eek: It doesn't even vaguely look like a tree! What's the point?

But - I read somewhere or other that they've put one like that up in Bournemouth, because a real one might fall over and hurt somebody!

Does anybody else remember having real candles in little clip on holders in their trees when they were little? :o

Don't know about town Xmas trees but wife and son saw one in a shop the other day that was black and upside down i.e longest branches at the top.:confused:

Yes, thanks to some of the local youths. The most colourful part of the tree!

Yes I do, but did you light yours and set fire to the tree like we did one year!
