Bluebottle's Festive Photos: Train Tree
Last year when we unpacked our artificial 6ft Christmas tree at home we discovered that the cardboard box it was stored in had disintegrated and the very top tip had snapped off. We replaced it with a new 7ft artificial tree and planned to take our former 6-ft tree, now 5'8" to the tip.
Then I remembered that at work we had no Christmas decorations in my team – none had come with us during the last restructure. I decided to take the old Christmas tree from home to work where it would be appreciated, as other than missing the very top and its box it is perfectly fine. So in early December I walked the tree to the station and carried it on the train to work – you can see the tree’s base on the train’s table. Unfortunately the train was too crowded for me to be able to stand back and get a good shot of the whole tree.
You get very strange looks when carrying a Christmas tree on a train, which is odd because it wasn’t as if I was carrying the tree on the train in July.
