My Neighborhood's Christmas Tree

Throughout the Strasbourg Capital of Christmas, ready-to-decorate Christmas trees are placed in the heart of neighborhoods. They await contributions from those who are eager to perpetuate the Christmas spirit by participating in a collective creation. Original, colorful decorations of all sizes, made from recycled materials or homemade, but above all, resistant to the weather.
