Pohutukawa tattoos are particularly popular. Pohutukawa tattoo has the meaning of harvest. Pohutukawa is a tall tree species growing in coastal areas. In December every year, bright red flowers bloom among the luxuriant branches, making the scene very beautiful. For many New Zealanders, the only thing they want to do during the Christmas season is to lie on the beach and enjoy the cool sunshine of Pohutukawa on a sunny day.
Christmas tree is the main feature of many families around the end of the year, as well as stockings, wood fire and hot cocoa. All of these are suitable for visiting from the cold Arctic, but the weather in the southern hemisphere is more suitable for barbecue on the beach. In New Zealand, residents take advantage of the early summer weather to adopt a special festive Pohutukawa as the symbol of Christmas on the island.
Like the Kauri tree on the island, Pohutukawa was revered by the first Maori who arrived on the island. In fact, trees play one of the most important roles in their journey into the afterlife.
