The Mancas have perfected the logistics of the tree operation over the past few years, as they competed with a friend for bragging rights to the tallest tree.
The Mancas, their son and a couple of friends position the tree at the back door, tie a long rope to the trunk, run it through the house, out the front door, and attach it to the bumper of the truck.
When it comes to Christmas trees, Dave Manca goes for size.
Manca's trees require a heavy-duty stand; a few years ago he found one at a flea market in Maine.
Such sizeable trees require dozens of strings of lights; so many, that Manca has long since lost track of the total length or number of replacements the family buys every year.
Mr Gregoriou, who lived in Edgbaston and was married to Mary, built Paradise Forum with partners Marcello Mancas
, of Italian restaurant La Galleria, and Savvas Constantine.
Bryan Robson is one of La Galleria's best clients and is now a close friend of the Mancas.
The Mancas pride themselves on serving quality fresh fish, meat and sauces.
But a cult figure wining and dining there was no surprise to owner Marcello Manca.
In fact, he still chips in now and again and Kay Manca's family favourites remain firmly on the menu.
