Holiday Treasure Hunt: World’s Biggest Christmas Trees

It’s the tallest Christmas tree among those that are lighted and alive, apparently, which leaves a lot of other contenders in consideration. Nevertheless, it is 160 feet tall and boasts 50,000 lights that you can watch twinkle LIVE through the Tree Cam if you <a title="Christmas Treasures" href="https://www.christmas-treasures.com/Webcam/Webcam.htm#gsc.tab=0" target="_blank">click here</a>.</br></br><strong>“World’s Largest Christmas Tree Made of Lights” (Gubbio, Italy) </strong></br></br>The Pope made his vote for favorite tree when he <a title="Discovery" href="http://news.discovery.com/human/pope-francis-illuminates-worlds-largest-christmas-tree-141208.htm" target="_blank">lit this Christmas bulb-covered mountain</a> in Gubbio, Italy, two weeks ago with an electronic tablet of (ahem) unknown manufacture.</br></br>While not inclined to promote brand-specific electronic devices, Pope Francis gave his blessing to Mount Ingino, which has had a place in the Guinness Book of World Records since 1991 as the world’s largest Christmas tree – despite not being a tree at all. The annual light arrangement is nearly 2,500 feet tall with a base 1,500 feet wide.</br></br><strong>Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree (New York, New York)</strong></br></br>The 2014 Rockefeller Center Christmas tree in New York City <a title="Rockefeller Center" href="http://www.rockefellercenter.com/holidays/rockefeller-center-christmas-tree-lighting/" target="_blank">was erected on Dec. 3rd this year</a>, and stands 85 feet tall. This year’s tree is a 90-year-old Norway spruce and twinkles with 45,000 LED lights.</br></br>Rockefeller Center will donate the tree to Habitat for Humanity once Christmas passes, which has been its tradition for nearly 10 years.</br></br><strong>World’s Largest LEGO Christmas Tree (Sydney, Australia)</strong></br></br>As you may suspect, this is an honor that, ah, pops up in different places around the world from year to year. <a title="Inhabitat" href="http://inhabitat.com/worlds-biggest-lego-christmas-tree-shines-in-sydney/" target="_blank">The world’s largest LEGO Christmas tree</a> <em>this year</em> is located in a mall in Sydney, Australia, and stands at a modest 32 feet tall.</br></br>That’s still pretty big, but it doesn’t even come close to the <a title="Record Holders" href="http://recordholders.org/en/list/lego.html" target="_blank">largest LEGO Christmas tree ever built</a>, which was constructed on behalf of LEGO UK in 2003. The temporary London display required more than 600,000 LEGO bricks and topped out at 39 feet.</br></br><strong>World’s Tallest Floating Christmas Tree (Rio de Janiero, Brazil)</strong></br></br>By now, you’re probably noticing a trend – find some way to add another adjective and you, too, can have your very own World’s Tallest Christmas Tree!</br></br>The Brazilians have snuck one into the top rankings for many years now with its eye-popping <em>floating</em> Christmas tree, and 2014 is no exception. <a title="USA Today" href="http://www.usatoday.com/picture-gallery/news/world/2014/12/03/worlds-tallest-floating-christmas-tree/19824945/" target="_blank">This year’s beauty rises to 278 feet</a> above Rio de Janeiro’s Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon and boasts more than 3 million lights.</br></br>Tree or no tree, we hope all of you have a very merry holiday season.
