Joris Linssen's Christmas Tree in Leiden

Who will you put in the light? That is the question that Joris Linssen will ask visitors on Hooglandse Kerkplein in Leiden. In the dark December days, Joris’ Christmas tree is the ultimate meeting place for all people to hang a photo of a special person in their lives between the pine branches and to place them in the light.

The supervisors of Joris’ Christmas tree will be on the Hooglandse Kerkplein on 14 December. Everyone is invited to put a photo in the Christmas tree of a person he or she wants to put in the light. Joris Linssen will be present on Saturday 14 December from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. to hear the personal stories behind the photo. The large Christmas tree is a meeting place where, for example, you can ask each other to marry, thank a saving angel, say sorry or celebrate a close friendship.

Do you want to thank someone, pay homage to a person or say sorry to someone? Come to Joris’ Christmas tree and take the photo of the person concerned. If you also want to share your story with Joris Linssen in the TV program, you can also mail your story to joriskerstboom@kro-ncrv.nl
