Fun Fact: Costa Rica - Christmas



Christmas Trees in Costa Rica:

Costa Rica citizens often decorate fragrant cypress trees with ornaments and lights. Sometimes the dried branches of coffee shrubs are used instead, or an evergreen branch if available. The Costa Rica Christmas season doesn’t end until the sixth of January, when the three wise men are said to have greeted baby Jesus.
 
Here is a picture of a Coffee tree with fruit. 
Definitely has a Christmas feel. :)
