A couple of months in anticipation of the Christmas season, work to build up the famous Christmas tree in Rio de Janeiro has begun (No Rio, árvore de Natal já começa a ser montada). The tree is traditionally erected on the middle of the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas. It will be inaugurated on 26 November are if you visit Rio during the Christmas season I wouldn’t miss it!
