Christmas and New Year are holidays, the symbol of which can be not only a tree, but also a plate. Indeed, these days people visit each other, and the owners try to feed their friends and relatives who have come to them as tasty as possible. It is these gastronomic traditions that the inhabitants of the Belgian city of Hasselt decided to emphasize by installing on the central square treecreated by from ceramic dishes.
A modern Christmas tree doesn't have to be alive (albeit felled). For this, fantasy is given to a person so that he invents more and more new ways to change the world around him for the better. And therefore, in recent years, more and more variations on the Christmas tree theme have appeared. Someone collects a New Year's beauty from shopping baskets, someone from a LEGO constructor, someone from porcelain, and a Christmas tree made of ceramics appeared in the Belgian city of Hasselt this December.
The initiators of the creation of this unusual object say that every inhabitant of Hasselt at home has a huge amount of unnecessary dishes that collect dust somewhere on the highest shelves, without seeing the light for years or even decades. So why not get hold of all this half-forgotten pottery and put it on display?
Having approached the residents of Hasselt with such a proposal, the initiative group in a matter of days received more than five thousand plates, cups and saucers, which eventually went into action. A huge Christmas tree was assembled from them, which was then installed in the central square of the city.
As a result, many Hasselt residents can now boast of putting their efforts into creating one of the most amazing Christmas trees in the world. It will stay in the central part of the city for a whole month - until January 6, 2013.
