Surplus for the winter

In the past, sacrificings of gratitude were very common in most of Europe.
Especially after the harvest of the year was done and the winter supply well-saved.
In many places nowadays, these sacrificings have more character of decorations.

These men have done their part of the work of bringing
– the coming mood on the La place Kléber in Strasbourg.
Soon the main character (the tree) will make entrance on the scene.

Many people know that soon there will be decorations of squares and streets
– in a lot of cities, of course in french Strasbourg too.
A tradition that starts with a giant fir tree making the trip
from the Bas-Rhin area of Alsace to the square in Strasbourg.
Where it should bring the main ingredient to atmosphere and coziness.
It is not only the smaller children who are touched, the “big children” too.
