Probably the most spontaneous Christmas tree was decorated in Durham County, Great Britain. Locals labeled Peterlee Christmas tree a disgrace. To their surprise there was a special lighting ceremony, and a popular singer was invited to flick the switch to complete Christmas tree decoration.
The town officials, responsible for providing Christmas tree decorations and organizing celebration events, explained that their unattractive Christmas tree decorating ideas are spontaneous. Just before the tree lighting ceremony they got this Christmas tree and decorations for it, did not have time to send the tree back and decided to use available Christmas decorations for spontaneous decorating.
Ordinary people did not like the spontaneous creation that was missing large Christmas decorations and a tree topper. Some of them were saying that used Christmas tree decorations was an insult to Peterlee. Instead of adding festive holiday cheer, spontaneous ideas created gloomy mood in the town.
Some people did not mind impromptu Christmas tree decoration and the look of the real tree at all, although they admitted the tree did not look very good. They liked spontaneous eco friendly Christmas decorating ideas, they said. Many people believed there was nothing wrong with being spontaneous, but they got upset, when the local councilor started to complain about thousands of pounds spent on Christmas tree decorations, lighting up the town center and hiring Santa to come and give free toys to children.
