Christmas decorations in Scotland and Wales for 2018 – BBC News
Christmas decorations have been added to Scotland and Welsh areas for 2018, according to the BBC.
The BBC said the decorations were added to the landscape of parts of Glasgow and Wrexham.
The announcement came after the BBC’s Scottish newsreader, Alison Brown, tweeted a picture of a Christmas tree in Llandudno, Scotland, and a caption that read: “What do you want to see?
A Christmas tree?
A tree that was given a coat of arms by the Queen?”
Ms Brown added the tweet was from the home of a member of the Royal Family.
The Scottish government said in a statement: “The Queen’s Christmas Tree, which has been around for over 400 years, is an iconic symbol of Scottish culture.
The government is delighted to be adding this iconic tree to the Scottish landscape.”
A spokeswoman for the Scottish Government said the Royalty Tree in Edinburgh was a “specialised tree, but not one of the most widely used”.
The spokeswoman said: “We have a large and diverse array of Christmas trees across the country, which includes thousands of different varieties.”
The Royalty tree is not a specialised tree.
It is an established tree that has been in use for over 300 years, and is a favourite in the Scottish countryside.
“She added: “It is not possible to identify every tree, so the decision to make this one was a collaborative one.
“However, the decision was made in light of the importance of the tree in the lives of Scottish people.”
It is understood the tree will be removed from the landscape in December.
