Christmas tree in Jonava

Christmas trees in Kaunas Town hall square became a phenomena in last decade. What a different materials and different shapes weren't used ! This phenomena is the result of activities of one women - Jolanta Šmidtienė -  whose devotion and creativity gained true international acceptance. E.g. several towns in Argentina are licensing the designs of Kaunas Christmas tree and building copies. I heard the rumours that one of the major European cities (it could be Brussels, Paris, London or Berlin) wants to attract this artist to design their main Christmas tree.
Kaunas Christmas tree still waits my attention but this year the winner may be the tree built in industrial district center Jonava and created by the same artist. This tree is made from used CD-ROM disks :)
