The Christmas tree became popular in England in 1841 when Queen Victoria's husband, Prince Albert, brought a tree over from Germany and put it in Windsor Castle. The Royal couple were illustrated in a newspaper standing around the Christmas tree with their children and the tradition of decorating a tree became fashionable.

In America, modern tradition is to put up a Christmas tree the day or weekend after Thanksgiving (after the fourth Thursday in November).

Whenever you decide to put up your Christmas tree, stick on a Micheal Buble CD, crack open the Irish cream drink that is synonymous with Christmas, chomp a few mince pies and have fun!
