The Biggest Christmas Tree in the World
The biggest Christmas tree in the world is the one in Gubbio, Italy – a magical sight that will get anyone in the holiday spirit.
In 1981 the residents of the town in Umbria decided to take matters into their own hands. They set up a single tree that the whole town could enjoy. Ten years later, their tree – resting on the side of Mount Ingino – set the Guinness world record with its 450-meter base, 750 meters of height, and 130,000-square-meter surface (equivalent to thirty soccer fields). The tree is made of almost one thousand lights, wired to about eight kilometers of electrical cables. It lights up on the evening of December 7, the eve of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, and is left on until January 6, day of the Epiphany.
