Santa could arrive earlier this year in the capital. At least that's how the Bucharest people who have already decorated their homes with tens of thousands of light bulbs for the holidays hope. During this period, the decoration companies face the demands with difficulty.
Over 20,000 light bulbs and 8,000 euros: that's how much it takes to decorate a house with a light curtain. To this money is added the benefit of a team of utilitarian climbers who needs four to five days to put each bulb in its place.
Abroad, the houses are decorated since November 1, on the outside, but also on the inside. Arms from the luxurious houses of the Capital follow in detail the trends in this area. The trees are twisted and the balloons have been replaced by flowers, butterflies, feathers, rhinestones or turtles. A fir tree decorated after the latest fashion can even exceed 1000 euros.
Neither the garden in front of the house should be neglected. Even though its decoration costs quite a lot, it can easily attract the attention of Santa Claus.
