But the local council says the tree doesn’t always look so dull.

After the lights on the tree were turned on, he fell victim to “certain young people” who tore leaves and cut light garlands.

Buckley City Council contractor Andy White told North Wales Live: “The tree was duly lit after families counted down and looked magical, with many positive comments from the share of participants.

“Unfortunately, during the following nights, some young people provoked anti-social behavior in and around the city center, and such events brought their attention to our tree, which caused them to break branches and even cut trees. lights.

“I just don’t see what they’re getting out of it. Not only does it disorganize the city, but there is a clear risk of electrocution and spoils the holiday season for our community.”

It comes after London’s iconic Trafalgar Square Christmas tree was ridiculed as a “national embarrassment” earlier this month.

Londoners claimed the tree looked “half dead” and more than a little worse for wear.

The Christmas tree, an annual gift from Norway, was honored at the London monument on December 1.

Once decorated, it’s supposed to bring some festive cheer after another rough year – but people claim it conjures up anything but everything.

Snapshots of the 78-foot (24m) “gaunt” spruce tree show it looking “hangover” and “hail”, according to disappointed viewers.

One person said on Twitter: “The tree in Trafalgar Square is completely depressing.

“There is no excuse for this. Shameful.”

Another posted: “If 2021 were a Christmas tree. “

As a third rang, “Looks like Norway took last year’s tree out of the dumpster and brought it back to Trafalgar Square, along with a few termites.”

“I had no idea they hated the WM government so badly.”
