"A Christmas tree lighting ceremony was held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Nov 26. According to Guinness World Records, the 82-meter-tall tree decorated with 2.8 million colorful bulbs is the biggest one in the world."
Styx Valley, Australia — The world's tallest Christmas Tree isn't on the White House lawn or in Trafalgar Square this year: it's in the Styx Valley, a tract of ancient forest in Tasmania. It's a living, 84 meter (276 foot) Eucalyptus tree, currently home to a half dozen activists who for more than a month have lived in its heights, protecting it from being cut down.
