It's getting closer to Christmas

All the decorations are in the stores, the decorations and lights are starting to appear in the streets, and the giant snow tube ride is being constructed at Potsdamer Platz (YIPPEE..our favourite) It is getting dark by 4.30pm here.
Today the Christmas tree on the Ku'dammm was being delivered! Here it is in front of the Gedächtnis-Kirche, getting ready to be lifted by a crane.....I am looking forward to seeing it all decorated.
I think.....the sign on the tree translates to someting like....
The Bad Tölz (company, or a region in Germany??), grow a tree to reach the sky, for the Berlin people.

If you read German better than me, and have a better translation for this one, feel free to comment and help me out (once you stop laughing at me!)

The large ropes hanging down on the left of the church, are attached to a huge crane. I will be looking forward to seeing how they decorate it.

Bad Tölz is way up in the Alps (and near the Austrian border) - that's why they're growing trees for the people of Berlin way up in the sky/heavens. :)
