A New Zealand family’s christmas tree decorating the house will be a gift to all of us
The Christmas tree decoration on the property is all yours, according to the family.
The decorations have been placed at the end of the driveway to the house and a tree was placed on the driveway.
Christmas Tree & Tree House owner Michael Smith told The New Zealand Herald that the tree was “totally in” the house at the time of the fire.
“It’s the perfect place for a tree to be, I’ve got a nice tree right here in the driveway,” Smith said.
He said the family was “very, very happy” with the decoration.
The house has been in the family for more than 40 years, and Smith said the decorations were placed for the family to “give back to the community”.
“There’s a lot of work that goes into the house, and so it’s quite amazing that the whole family is happy,” Smith told the Herald.
Smith told the newspaper the family has been keeping a close eye on the tree throughout the years.
“[It’s] quite an incredible tree, and it’s just a lovely tree to have in the house,” he said.
“It gives the family peace of mind and that’s what we love about Christmas and having a tree.”
Smith said he was “surprised” that the house had burned down.
After the fire, Smith said he spent some time in a “stunned” state.
When the fire broke out, he took some photos of the scene and posted them on Facebook.
Police said the cause of the blaze was unknown. – Stuff
