New Zealand is the first country to use the concept of Christmas tree decorations to decorates its public houses.
The New Zealand Ministry of Primary Industries and Industry (MPI) is working on the concept, which will help boost tourism and tourism infrastructure.
“We’re going to be using this in our public houses,” said Minister of Agriculture, Food and the Marine Matt McCausland.
The government has already seen the positive feedback it is receiving from tourists, including a visit from a family from China who were interested in decorating their holiday home.
“Christmas trees are popular, they’re a good addition to any home.
They have a lot of different colours, so we’ve decided to get them all in a Christmas tree and have some holiday decorations for Christmas.”
It is hoped the scheme will be used by the public house industry as well.
“It’s really important to have a Christmas spirit in our society,” said McCauslands deputy chief of staff John Collins.
“There’s so many people who have been working on this for a long time and they really want to make it a success.”
The New Zealander is also looking at whether it could be used in private homes as well, where people would be able to decorating the windows, doors, and mantels.
“In some cases, a family might be looking for some Christmas decorations and we’ve had some inquiries from a private home owner, so that’s something we’re working on now,” said Mr Collins.
He said it was not yet known whether or not people would have to pay for the decorations, but they would be covered for the time it would take to make the decorations.
