The first Christmas tree to be cut was a wooden model made by the local craftsman in the town of Kew.
It was made in the 1920s and made of birch, but now it is a tree that can be built using materials from the local quarry.
The tree was made at the same time as the start of the holiday season in the city of Winton, which is known for its Christmas market and its famous carolers.
It is a big hit with locals, who gather in the market and sing Christmas carols from the trees on Christmas Day.
The carols are sung during the first week of December, and are said to have given Winton its name.
The town of Wiston has become a centre of Christmas shopping in recent years, and locals have come to the city to shop for their holiday gifts.
They sell their handmade Christmas gifts at the market in front of the old Winton church.

The Wiston carol was recorded as having been sung by an individual known as ‘the little man’.
This year, Wiston is celebrating its annual Christmas Eve market, and the Winton shopkeeper, David Johnson, said the market had been very successful.
He said:”This year we have a lot of interest from people from around the world who want to buy our Christmas trees, which are really nice and bright.”
Mr Johnson said the Christmas market in Wittons Christmas Eve was not the first time the shop had seen its Christmas trees cut.
“It was in the 1930s, so it is still going,” he said.
“But we have had a great response so far this year.”
People are just so happy to be there.
“There are people from all over the world coming to Wittoms Christmas market, so we can sell them their Christmas trees and we can have the Christmas atmosphere.”

In the morning, Mr Johnson said he would go down to the market to sell his handmade Christmas trees.
“We’ve got to sell as many as we can, so people come in here and buy Christmas trees from us,” he told News Corp. “There are hundreds of them.”
Mr Henson said he had heard about the Wiston market through his neighbours and friends.
“They are very good at making Christmas trees,” he explained.
“The best thing about Christmas is the little guys coming here and having fun.”
I would love to see a tree made from the tree I made, but I can’t afford it.
