I know this is old news, but it is new news to me. I just read that Netflix paid for Rome’s main Christmas tree in 2018.
Here’s the tree:
Sponsoring this tree was a huge expense: 370,000 Euro (about $400,000.00).
You may have heard about the 2017 Christmas tree that was a big fiasco: it lost all its needles and was a tree skeleton!
I had just never heard of an American company sponsoring a Roman (or any) Christmas tree before! It makes sense, private companies sponsor all kinds of public good works throughout the country.
