The main New Year tree of Belarus is being assembled on the Oktyabrskaya Square in Minsk. The New Year tree is thirty meters high. It will be decorated with artificial pine branches, balls, ornaments, and pixel lights. The work is to be completed in a week. This year the capital will be decorated with 29 New Year trees. They will be mounted in December. A festive mood will be created by 33 light figures, e.g. congratulatory inscriptions, gift boxes, and shining stars. Minsk will turn on the festive illumination on December 14.
