It is Christmas time, and we can prove it. Watch this fantastic video about lighting the famous Christmas tree that, with the help of DFDS, has come from Norway to Trafalgar Square in London for a beautiful lighting ceremony. It is the ultimate sign of Christmas at DFDS.
Usually, our colleagues invite children from schools and other groups to the Nordic Terminal in Immingham to welcome the huge Christmas tree that arrives from Norway on a long trailer on board our ship. This year, COVID-19 got in the way. Instead, this great video tells the story behind Norway’s gift to the UK. It covers cutting the tree, transporting it by trailer and ferry to Immingham, and then on to Trafalgar Square for a beautiful and touching lighting ceremony.
Enjoy this perfect interview with Andrew Byrne, Ferry’s Managing Director in Immingham and the greetings from the Lord Mayor of Westminster, the Norwegian Ambassador to the UK, and – not least – the many people involved in making the lighting ceremony such a beautiful and spectacular celebration.
