ANSWERS: Schleswig Holstein in the Dithmarschen Region, the Island of Sylt, and the Halligen Islands, plus Lower Saxony.
The Jöölboom is a Christmas arch that is typical for the region once known as the Frisia, which covered parts of Schleswig Holstein, Lower Saxony western Denmark and vast parts of the Netherlands. Because the pine trees were seldom to find along the North Sea coast, this was used as a window decoration, featuring an arch covered with plants, and decorated with apples, cookies and wooden decorations. How they were designed was based on the regions- this one is typical for the Halligen with the decorations representing farm life. whereas in Sylt, the design is different and features mainly fish decorations.
