It also makes sense you asking about an example in Europe, but not as a response to Michael's post, unless you misunderstood and thought he was talking about EUrope.
And if you quote Michael, and direct a quesiton to someone else (MeMyselfandI) I consider the responsibility to be yours to make that clear in the posting, or obviously people will conclude that you are responding to Michael.
I won't pursue this line of inquiry because
  1. I don't disagree with you
  2. My head hurts from facepalming incessantly
  3. I'm bored with it
  4. I've got better things to do with the rest of the day
  5. I have visitors
  6. I need to make dinner
  7. I need to make an urgent call
  8. I'm going to get laid
  9. I need a drink
  10. The house is on fire

Take your pick.

Hmmm...
I'm suspicous of 1. 2 seems plausible. 3 also seems plausible. 4 is certainly true. 5 seems plausible. 6 seems plausible, but unlikely to prevent a response. 7 seems the same. 8 doesn't seem to be plausible, but good luck to you! 9 seems a bit far-fetched given your circumstances. 10 does not seem to be at all plausible.

I'll go with 4 because that's the only one that is certainly true.

Actually it turned out to be:

Why do Europeans so hate their own culture, they go out of their way to lower it and destroy it, just to appease some immigrants?

I still do not understand it... No, Europe is no example for us. Russians would never bend over for anyone this way... Russia has many problems, but if there is one certain thing, it is that people here take pride in their culture.

Anyway, speaking of trees.

I wonder what is it with the number 30? 30 meters, that is. Everywhere in the country this new year, the New Year trees installed at centers of cities, in squares, will be exactly 30 meters tall.

30 meter fir-tree will be brought to Red Square from near-Moscow forests
http://inmsk.ru/news_society/20121114/354259206.html

30 meter artificial tree will be installed outside the White House (government headquarters)
http://lifenews.ru/news/103179
Yes, the Kremlin gets the real tree, because they are the boss. White House gets the plastic crap imitation, because that is what they themselves are
I was wrong: the Kremlin tree is 34.5 meters tall, not 30.


Before, this is her right after was chopped down


Actually, there will be a 46 meter tree at Teatralnaya Square in Krasnoyarsk (yes, same name as the square in front of Bolshoi Theater, every city in Russia, and many in former Soviet republics have a Teatralnaya square), tallest in our country, but it will be a artificial imitation, so, does not count
http://ngs24.ru/news/804688/view/

At Bolshoi they have a real tree, not artificial, but, I am not sure how tall


The big New Year tree in my home city, Arkhangelsk

The other tree at city hall, where parties for the children are being held

That was the first New Year tree opened in the country, during National Unity Day, back in November, there was a big ceremony, half the city was there


Head tree of Mari-El Republic at Lenin Square, in the capital city, Yoshkar-Ol


I like this one, near a shopping center in Voronezh

For some reason, they have a American Santa Claus, instead of proper Russian Grandfather Frost; and a miserable security guard there, keeping a eye on it all lol

Kazan, Tatarstan, New Year tree and Kul-Sharif mosque


New Year "Ice City" in Ulan-Ude, Buryatia


Kyzyl, Tuva


Actually, Tuvans (and I think Buryats also and other native Siberians) will celebrate their Shagaa, Eastern Calendar New Year, in February. They have own rituals and such for that, very interesting

People from European Russia go on tours to Tuva and those places just to watch this.

Anyway, will post more tree photos from around Russia as I find them.

2014 Brussels Christmas Tree.

The 2015 one will be..... digital .

Prediction:
All hell will break loose again and Brussels will be reported as 'caving in to Muslim fundamentalism' by all the extreme right propaganda sites once again.
