The Pohutukawa is one of New Zealands most beautiful trees when blossoming.
Look at the red blossoms.
It is called the New Zealand Christmas tree beacuse it blossoms d uring the X-mas season.
It is strange to drive around a country with lots of green and flowers and hear christmas ads on the radio and see x-mas trees in the shopwindows.
Merry Christmas everybody and a happy new year. In stead of Christmas cards.
