The queen goes to church every year on Christmas Day, and she always gifts St. Mary Magdalene — which stands on the Sandringham estate — with a Christmas tree cut from her grounds. Other trees from the estate are given to local schools, while the pride of place in her own home is a 20-foot Norfolk spruce. Staff decorate most of the tree with ornaments including tartan ribbons and Queen Victoria's glass angels, but the queen adds a few finishing touches when she arrives, and the children are allowed to hang a few baubles on Christmas Eve.
