Do you know any of these fascinating Christmas tree facts?
Bloom & Wild explores Christmas tree traditions from around the world

Brits spend £2.3 billion a year on Christmas trees and decorations
500 lights are used on Trafalgar Square’s Christmas tree but 3.3 million light up the tree in Rio de Janeiro

London, UK
For immediate release
To celebrate the start of the Christmas season, Bloom & Wild has created an informative and festive infographic that explores global Christmas tree traditions and highlights the significance of the Christmas tree around the world.

The infographic also details British Christmas tree and Christmas décor trends and rituals. With around £2.3 billion each year being spent on Christmas trees and decorations, it’s clear that the Christmas tree is still very much a mainstay in British culture during the festive period.

Bloom & Wild’s infographic reveals some little known facts and figures, as well as guidance on the maintenance of Christmas trees.

For example:

The most popular Christmas tree in British homes is the Nordmann fir
A freshly cut Christmas tree should last up to 4 weeks
The best time to put up a freshly cut Christmas tree is between the 1st and 11th of December
If a Christmas tree is not taken down by the 5th of January it’s considered bad luck in the UK
It takes the average Christmas tree 8 years to grow to optimum Christmas tree size

Through their infographic, Bloom & Wild showcases the cultural differences that are represented in different Christmas tree traditions around the world, but also illustrates how the Christmas tree is a universal symbol of the season that ultimately brings us together. From snow-tipped artificial trees and to Bloom & Wild’s mini Christmas trees that can be used to decorate even the smallest of spaces, there is a Christmas tree for everyone, no matter your circumstance!

Jim Warren, Marketing Director at Bloom & Wild, said: “We wanted to explore the huge number of traditions surrounding Christmas trees around the world. We found this of particular interest when we worked on our Christmas range which is inspired by UK Christmas traditions and decorative styles, with products including our real mini christmas trees, festive bouquets such as The Robyn with its red roses, noble fir and hypericum berries, and the more traditional Pointsettia.”
