"Neukölln celebrates KNUT"

It is just about the time of the year when Christmas Trees are:

1. being dismantled and put back into the plastic bag and carton for the following years to come (american version).

2. being thrown onto the sidewalk for the city cleaning to take them on their big final ride to purgatory (euro-version, made popular by a swedish furniture label).

It's quite a sight in the streets of Berlin now.

They are hanging out there for about a week or two and I am just beginning to wonder whether the cleaning lads are still on holidays, or whether that furniture label paid the city council to play along for promotional purpose.
