For 66 years now, volunteers from the Norwegian Woman`s Public Health Association have made colorful decorated birches, for sale. This year I noticed that some were put up around the park in the city centre. In Norway there are sold 250,000 feathered birch twigs every year. All the money goes to health projects.
It is a sign of Lent and Spring, a tradition we have "taken" from Germany, and it is sold the same number of weeks before Easter, every year.

How bright and happy. At least this "bombing" is easier to remove than knitting!

Looks almost like Christmas all over again Gunn, what a great idea to raise funds.
Great touch of colour to contrast with the snow. Lovely!
How nice and colorful! Excellent tradition.
Lovely way to add color to the winter landscape.
Colorful. I like it a lot
I have learned so much through posts like this. The product is colorful and a wonderful contrast to the snow, but the benefit is amazing.
