Oh Tiny Christmas Tree

Trees here are so oddly-shaped and small, but it smells like pine and that’s good enough for me.

Xmas tree

That is an elephant ornament as a topper. A teacher at my first lycée back in 2006 gave it to me. And since Chambéry is the elephant city, I think it’s fitting.

    Looks like a Charlie Brown tree with a few more needles, but its very pretty

    Cute tree! It’s true they really like the squatty little ones over here. What’s this about Chambery being the elephant city? did I miss a blog post ?

    I love your tree! You are right, it is an odd shape, but kinda quirky and cool.

    @karen: Chambéry has a huge statue of 4 elephants downtown but I forget what it’s supposed to commemorate… It’s the most recognizable monument here since it’s on all the postcards (like the Palais de l’Ile in Annecy).

    I like real Christmas trees, and I hate the fake one. The real ones smell so good!
