Canada appears to be in the business of sending Christmas trees south of the border, as the Canadian embassy just put theirs up.
Kirsten Hillman, Canada’s ambassador to the United States, revealed a photo of the tree in a tweet, noting that it came from Nova Scotia.
“No better way to celebrate the ???? partnership for the holidays than a #NovaScotia tree!” she wrote.
The province also sends a massive tree to Boston every year, but for a historical purpose.
It is an annual gift to commemorate the American city sending aid up north following the deadly Halifax explosion in 1917.
Growing Christmas trees in Nova Scotia is a big deal, and the province even has a council dedicated to it.
According to its website, there are about 1,200 families that produce roughly one million trees on 39,000 acres of land.
It’s already been a wild year for Christmas trees, with an owl hitching a ride in the one meant for Rockefeller Center.
