A Witshire man famous for celebrating Christmas every day is now planning to marry his Christmas tree.

Andy Park, 47, has eaten Christmas dinner every day for the past 17 years, reports The Sun.

The divorcee, from Melksham, who is known as Mr Christmas, admits that his friends think he's crackers.

But he insisted: "I love my Christmas tree more than anything else, so that's why I want to marry it.

"I've already got a ring, although I'm not sure yet which branch I'll want to hang it on.

"The only problem seems to be finding a vicar who is willing to do the ceremony."

Mr Park said that although he'd only had the plastic tree for two years, he felt it was like "his best friend" and he never tired of seeing it sitting in his living room.

He said: "I can't see why we can't be joined in matrimony. I've heard of other people marrying their pets and so on, so why can't I get hitched to my tree?"

Andy began celebrating Christmas in 1993 and since then he's estimated to have eaten more than 6,000 Christmas dinners.

He says it started when he felt "bored" and "fed-up" one July and putting up decorations had made him feel so happy so he decided to carry on.
