35 Most Exceptional Christmas Trees Around the World

This is the time of the year when Christmas trees are finally getting an overdue makeover. Those days are long gone when we use to decorate our own personal family Christmas trees with objects we found around the home — colored strings of popcorn, berries, and nuts. Or at least with few cool ornaments if you opt for spending your entire pocket money.

Nowadays, in cities around the world, people make an annual event out of the lighting of a public Christmas tree that is usually located somewhere everyone has visual access to throughout the festive season.

The tradition of the Christmas tree is long and rich, and has resulted in some of the modern time trees that are breathtakingly beautiful, totally eye-catching, describe everything that Christmas stands for. They’re big, they’re grand, and they get more creative and stunning every year.

From the upside down Christmas tree at Paris to the world’s record-breaking human Christmas tree in Tegucigalpa, let’s have a look at some of the best Christmas trees from around the world.
