Most people here in Belgium say you need to wait till December 6, because that is the feast day of Saint Nicholas “Santa Claus”.
In every family it is different. Therefore, no specific day or schedule is set for when to decorate your tree. Some people will choose to go with family tradition, others choose a random day where they have everyone together, while others decorate the tree on Christmas Eve.
This year you can start putting up your Christmas tree from December 7, as we start shipping the “Elektor” Christmas tree on St. Nicholas day. Make sure you order your tree well in advance as we will produce 100 trees only.
This years Elektor Christmas tree is available in 3 versions
- PCB only – Tree and controller are separate boards – you have to look for the ornaments and trim the tree yourself (source components and assemble the boards)
- PCB + component kit – you only have to trim the tree (assemble the board )
- Fully assembled Xmas tree – ready to put up (limited quantity available – only available from Eurocircuits)
More info is available in the December issue from Elektor or on the Elektor website,or watch the video on Youtube
