‘Saddest Christmas tree ever’ leaves shoppers in stitches over tiny stature

A council in Scotland has put up a Christmas tree, but it’s not bringing joy to locals in the way they expected.

Shoppers in Glasgow have been been left un hysterics by what’s been dubbed “the saddest Christmas tree ever”

The somewhat bedraggled-looking evergreen was erected in Springburn, an inner-city district in the north of the city.

As yet it doesn’t have any lights or decorations but is protected by a forbidding-looking crash barrier..

Residents in Springburn have been having a good laugh at the expense of the small tree which was spotted outside a closed-down corner shop on Springburn Way at the weekend.

As the festive season closes in, a spectacular array of Christmas lights and decorations have been erected up and down the country.

However one resident in Springburn couldn't believe her eyes when she saw the offering in her region, reports the Scottish Daily Record.

The local posted a picture on Twitter of the small, scrawny Christmas tree – which had been abandoned with four metal fences around it.

In the post, which has now been liked almost 3,000 times, she said: "Merry Christmas from Springburn!"

Naturally, social media users were quick to poke fun at the little tree.

Paula-jane posted: "Never been more proud of my roots."

James replied: "Coca cola should implement this into their next Xmas advert."

Jordo said: "There's council and then there's this."

And Kaitlin Coffey joked: "Missed the light switch on", followed by a broken heart emoji.

Meanwhile, Mark Hutton was quick to highlight the positives, adding: "Slightly bigger than the Milton one."

Still, Glasgow is getting a bit of a festive boost with the news that it will be the first stop on Coca-Cola’s popular Christmas Truck Tour

The famous red truck will be visiting various locations across the UK and the drinks brand has now revealed its first stop on the tour will be on Wednesday, November 24 when the truck arrives at Glasgow’s Silverburn Shopping Centre.
