It’s not even December…

The Sint hasn’t been yet…

But there is a Christmas Tree in Brussels.

At around 6:00 AM on Thursday the Christmas tree bound for Grand Place finished its journey to Brussels, ready to prepare for the launch of the seasonal festival in the city at the end of November.

Welcomed by Alderman for Culture, Delphine Houba, the tree was erected shortly before 8:00 AM under the eye of Mayor Philippe Close.

I was going to wander out at lunchtime to take a look but work got in the way. Luckily, however, you can watch it on the webcam.

It doesn’t move much.
