Christmas Trees

Camnitzer remembers his astonishment on discovering that European colonials in the Caribbean, as in many places in the Southern Hemisphere also, would dress in furs at Christmas, despite the heat and humidity, to demonstrate their status. The Christmas trees, carefully labelled, are as exotic in their northern provenence to someone from the southern hemisphere as is the Palm House's little empire of southern spices to a native of Liverpool.
