Here's A Bunch Of Peterborough Christmas Trees

The Christmas season is in full swing in Peterborough. One of the top yearly traditions that everyone can get involved with is the decorating of the Christmas tree. People get right into it, and often times you can learn a lot about someone by watching them work. Whether you’re a purist who only works with real trees or someone who likes the simplicity of a fake one, the results are always impressive. Here are Christmas tree pictures people in the Peterborough community sent us.  Aaron Elliott
