10 different styles of Christmas tree decorating in CQ

THE first day of December marked the start of the Jolly season with residents across Central Queensland dusting off the Christmas decorations and brightening up their homes.

The Bulletin put a call out to see reader's Christmas trees and noticed there were at least 10 different Christmas tree styles.

Here are the styles:

1. Trees decorated by children of all sizes

3. Trees for pets.

Some pets seem to think a Christmas tree is a new toy for them to play with.

Some trees already feature tempting wrapped presents that children struggle to stay away from.
