Which city gifts a Christmas tree to London’s Trafalgar Square every year?
Every year since 1947, Oslo, Norway has presented London with a special gift: an enormous Christmas tree that stands at the center of Trafalgar Square. The tree serves as a token of gratitude to Britain for its assistance to Norway during World War II. During the war, Norwegian King Haakon VII and his government fled to Britain, where Norway’s resistance movement was launched.
The tree, which usually measures more than 60 feet tall, is carefully selected from the forests surrounding Norway’s capital of Oslo before it travels more than 1,000 miles to London. An annual lighting ceremony takes place in Trafalgar Square to kick off the Christmas season.
Answer: The correct answer is Oslo, Norway
