A 362 feet (110.35 meters) high, Christmas Tree has been erected in Mexico City,this year; which is officially world’s largest Christmas Tree. The gigantic Christmas tree weighs some 330 tons, and is 115 feet,(35 meters) in diameter.
This spectacular tree now holds the world’s largest Christmas tree record as Carlos Martinez, an envoy of the Guinness World Records, publicized the new record. This tree exceeds by 24 centimeters (9.5 inches), the Christmas tree in Aracaju, Brazil – previously this city held the record for the world’s largest Christmas tree, being 361.25 feet (110.11 meters) high.
In addition, Martinez disclosed, that, “The possibility existed that this would not break the record, since the height (of the Brazilian tree) was exceeded by only 24 centimeters, but finally we corroborated it and remain satisfied that there is no problem that now Mexico has this new Guinness record”
This lofty Christmas tree was lit at 8:30 pm, on Saturday, marking off the beginning of The Christmas Season in the Mexican Capital, and will be displayed for 35 days. The Mayor of Mexico, Mr. Marcelo Ebrard, headed the tree- lightening ceremony.
