Countdown: 4 days till Xmas

With only 4 days to go we should all be firmly in the festive mood…untitled

One of my favorite things about Christmas is our Christmas tree here at XP HQ (see right).

I love getting all the decs out and making a day out of decorating the house with a bottle of bubbly!

Here are some Christmas facts to get you in the mood:

  • The tallest Christmas tree ever cut was a 221-foot Douglas fir;
  • Christmas trees usually grow for about 15 years before they are sold;
  • Many parts of the Christmas tree can actually be eaten, with the needles being a good source of Vitamin C;
  • The world’s largest Christmas stocking measured 106 feet and 9 inches (32.56 m) long and 49 feet and 1 inch (14.97 m) wide. It weighed as much as five reindeer and held almost 1,000 presents;
  • The largest Christmas cracker was 45.72m long and 3.04m in diameter.

One of the laster things I’ve heard about are upside down christmas trees so you can fit more presents under it! – I think i’ll be sticking to a more traditional tree!!

Here’s my christmas tree below.. tweet us your best Christmas snap!
