ASHKHABAT, 23 December - IP "TURKMENinform". The Turkmen capital is preparing to celebrate New Year. There are a lot of New Year trees all over the city - natural and artificial, pretty decorated by workers of city's organizations and ministries with balls, ribbons, bows, toys and garlands. As a rule, New Year trees are presented by pines or cypress growing near buildings or trees composed from many small firs gathered around a steel trunk.
New Year trees fairs and sales are met everywhere, and citizens can choose a fir (though it is hard to find a natural tree and people often choose from artificial firs) of any height and width or price, and buy various decorations and electric garlands.
