The biggest floating Christmas tree in the world has been unveiled in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro. The city has well and truly marked the start of the festive season with the world first floating tree which measures a huge 85 metres. With the trouble many nation’s around the world have been having with financial problem this time of the year is a welcome relief.

One hundred thousand people had come together to watch the official Christmas switch-on of the huge metal structure which is floating on the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon in Rio.

Guinness World Record

The entire structure weighs in at 542 tonnes and it has been completely wrapped in 3.3 million light bulbs which was the centrepiece of an eight minute fireworks show, this as would be expected has become one of the city’s go to attractions.

It has been estimates that more than a million people are expected to go and see the structure before the lights are officially turned on for Christmas, and the lights will be turned off on Three King’s day which is the 6th of January.

The Guinness Book of Records has listed this creation as the world’s largest floating Christman tree, with no other attempt being made to break it this year atleast it can be happy to know it will reign supreme over the whole world.

It was only recently that an attempt to break the most world records in a day was attempted as part of the Guinness Book of Records,  but this giant Christmas tree has taken the situation to the extreme.

With Christmas around the corner events like this get people in the mood to have fun and enjoy what is around them. For a few days of the year many enjoy the simple pleasures, family, food and just having fun and this tree sums that up as it has brought and will bring people together.

Santa Claus

Many places in the world have their own attractions, New York, London and countless other destinations around the world attract people with the Christmas feeling, even shopping malls the world over will have a resident Santa Claus waiting for children to jump on the lap of.

The funny thing about it is, many people are still excited about these little attractions every year, even as children grow up Christmas is surrounded by a sense of magic and wonder feelings of which they keep well into adulthood.
