Cou­ple dec­o­rates their house with over 100 Christmas trees

Kuwait Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

For one Ger­man cou­ple, putting up the Christmas dec­o­ra­tions takes eight long weeks. With around 16,000 baubles needed to be placed on over 100 Christmas trees, Thomas and Su­sanne Jeromin’s an­nual win­ter won­der­land at their house in the small Ger­man town of Rinteln has be­come a sea­sonal la­bor of love. “We started off with a nor­mal Christmas tree in the liv­ing room as you’d ex­pect and then we thought we could put one in the hall­way, one in the kitchen, and over the last five years it’s ex­ploded,” Thomas Jeromin said. The Christmas-ob­sessed cou­ple be­gan dec­o­rat­ing the 105 square me­ters of space in their home, 60 km south west of Han­nover, in early Oc­to­ber, with lights, or­na­ments and Fa­ther Christmas dec­o­ra­tions dot­ted through­out. The Jeromin’s bed­room is the only fes­tive-free zone. “It’s our re­treat for when we’ve had enough of Christmas,” Su­sanne Jeromin said.
