Ever wondered what the World’s Best Christmas Trees look like?
Just cos it’s Christmas, we’ve been out and found the best Christmas trees in the whole world, from the biggest to the weirdest to the “most human”……
The Biggest Christmas Tree in the World
The Mount Ingino Christmas Tree is a lighting illumination in the shape of a Christmas tree that is installed annually on the slopes of Mount Ingino in Italy.
In 1991 the Guinness Book of Records named it “The World’s Largest Christmas Tree”. It’s 650m high and 350m wide with 3000 multi-coloured lights, and can be seen from a distance of 50km away.
The Biggest Human Christmas Tree
The record for the largest human Christmas tree has just been broken by Thailand. 852 kids between ages 6-15 stood in a “Christmas tree formation” at a Thai shopping mall.
The previous record was held by 672 participants in Germany (although 13 people were deducted because they did not stay in the Christmas tree shape for the required time).
The World’s Weirdest Christmas Tree
Our frontrunner this year for weirdest tree goes to this one made of – wait for it – sushi. Is it wrong that I’m getting hungry?…..
The Biggest “Living” Christmas Tree
The UK’s largest still-growing Christmas tree is a 113-foot (34.4m) giant redwood tree at Wakehurst Place, West Sussex.
The Best LEGO Christmas Trees
The Christmas Bricktacular at LEGOLAND Florida displays a 30-foot tall LEGO Christmas tree made of 270,000 LEGO bricks.
There’s also a pretty awesome LEGO tree at St Pancras International Station – made from 600,000 LEGO Bricks with 172 branches and 1200 baubles.
The Biggest Floating Christmas Tree
