Christmas Tree 2.0 in Brussels

By Eric Meunier


Updated on

We recently stopped by at the Grand-Place in Brussels to take some shots of the electronic Christmas Tree that debuted on November 30th and will remain until the end of the year.

Replacing the traditional pine tree, this 2.0 Christmas tree has created some controversy with people calling it “an attack on Christmas due to values and traditions.”

Brussels City Councilor, Philippe Close, disclosed “What we want is just to modernize the pleasure of winter, of this Christmas market and all the image of Brussels. For people who want a traditional religious symbol, we have the nativity scene here in the square. For people who want modernity, we have this new tree.”

HomeDSGN’s readers, what’s your opinion? is this Christmas Tree a piece of junk, or a piece of art?
