Lietuva in brief - 2013-01-10

Jan 09, 2013

This year, Lithuanian residents will again have the opportunity to use Christmas trees meaningfully, turning them into biofuel, reports ELTA. Special containers marked with the campaign symbols ‘Christmas Tree for Warm Homes’ will be placed at shopping centers of major cities from Jan. 6-13. The campaign will take place in 12 Lithuanian cities. “The campaign, which is being held for already the 7th time, is getting more popular. It shows that people’s awareness is growing and fewer Christmas trees are thrown away. This year we also expect active participation,” said the organizer of the campaign Saulius Budrevicius.

Lithuania’s residents spent more than one-fifth of the first New Year’s day watching TV, says market research company TNS LT after conducting a survey based on the TV meter method, reports ELTA. On Jan. 1, on average one resident watched television for 5 hours 21 minutes. Last year one resident on average watched TV for 3 hours 36 min. Also, people spent a considerable amount of time watching TV on the last day of the year; on Dec. 31 one resident on average watched TV for 5 hours 6 min. 12.1 percent of Lithuania’s residents watched the New Year’s greeting by President Dalia Grybauskaite, which was broadcast during the last hour of the year.
