New Year tree goes for naturalness 

Traditionally, Maidan Nezalezhnosti is the spot for Ukraine’s main New Year’s tree. This year, people are intrigued about how it will look even more than usual, since last year’s fake tree was mocked. It was designed as a colored cone, resembling a clown’s cap, a toy pyramid and even a rocket, all quickly embodied in many online spoofs. City hall learned its lesson. This year’s 35-meter-high New Year tree is promised to be as natural looking as plastic trees can be. The decorations will include ethnic ornaments and impressive flashlights. It’s been under construction since Nov. 15, and the opening ceremony will take place on Dec. 19, Saint Nicholas Day, at 5 p.m.
