Saturnalia twig tree This is my Saturnalia tree.

It’s not very photogenic. You can’t really see the lights here, but it looks pretty in real life.

It changes colour softly: purple, blue, green, pink, white. It doesn’t flash, it just gently twinkles as each colour blends into the next.

Saturnalia twig tree again It has the icy sparseness of a bare winter tree, in a deciduous rather than evergreen style. It’s a postmodern nod towards the semiotics of the Christmas tree, without all the trimmings. It’s a knowing glance at tradition with the aesthetics of late 20th-century minimalism.

It’s a load of fake silver twigs with fibre optics inside, basically.

Still, I like it.
