Cascading polystyrene snow trees

Snow is falling down the Christmas tree in the window of the Blog’s hairdresser in London. Artificial snow, that is, but constantly falling, like a closed-loop fountain.


I sit inside the hairdresser watching as passers-by stop to marvel at it. Some are open-mouthed in astonishment. Parents lift children up to watch the white snowflakes falling as the lights blink on and off.


It is only mid-November but trade is brisk in this hairdresser’s unexpected sideline. I suggest he puts up a webcam to record the happy faces when passers-by see it. Who needs a real tree when a fake plastic tree dropping tiny white polystyrene snowflakes can be this much fun?
