Trafalgar Square Christmas tree mocked by onlookers as ‘half dead’ | UK News

This year’s Trafalgar Square Christmas tree is missing in parts and looks “quite dead”, according to reactions on social media and from passers-by.

The tall spruce, which has been lifted into its traditional position in central London as the festive season gets under way, attracted criticism with some people less than impressed with its appearance.

One person wrote on X: “That’s only half the tree.”

Another questioned: “Where’s the other half of it?!”

One person reacted: “Is it me, or does it look quite dead?”

An official X account for the tree, run by Westminster Council, responded to the negativity: “It’s not always about what’s on the outside, this is a beautiful tradition which I hope will carry on for years to come.”

It has been an annual gift to London from the people of Norway since 1947, and recognises Britain’s support during the Second World War.

But it has also been the subject of ridicule for many years.

It has been described as “ropey” and “spindly” in the past.

Some, however, leapt to its defence on Monday, writing on social media: “It’s very irritating to see the disrespect to the tradition.”

Another wrote: “They always say bad things! Everyone looks weary after a long trip, right? Give it time to spruce up!”
