A big Christmas tree from Norway has been cut down and is on its way to London’s Trafalgar Square. It’s a yearly gift from Norway to say thanks for the support during World War II.

This tree, standing at 62 feet tall, will be lit up on December 7th in a special ceremony.

The tree was grown near Oslo, and it’s going to be shipped to London. A special team will set it up in Trafalgar Square using a big crane.

It’s going to be decorated with lights in the Norwegian style. The tradition started 76 years ago when the King of Norway sent the first tree to London during the war.

This year’s tree-cutting ceremony in Norway had important people from London, including the Mayor of Westminster and the British Ambassador. It’s a special way for Norway to say thanks for the support from London during a tough time.
