How many Christmas tree lights?
The biggest Christmas tree in the world tradition dates back to 1981, the town lights up its enchanted Christmas tree with more than 700 lights to symbolize the holiday season. This year, on December 7 at 18.00, the lighting ceremony will be broadcast live on the Facebook page Albero di Natale più Grande del Mondo.
The tallest Christmas tree in the world is 750 meters tall and has a huge star on top. The lights of the gigantic tree display that made it into the Guinness Book of Records in 1991 are powered by 8.5 kilometers of cables. 300 green lights are used to outline the tree, while 400 other coloured lights are used to illuminate the interior.
The “roots” of the tree begin close to Gubbio’s historic walls, and its star ascends to the basilica of S. Ubaldo, the town’s patron saint, at the top of the mountain.
Locals have “adopted” each of tree’s lights, dedicating one to a loved one. Messages range from congratulating grandparents who have passed away to welcoming new newborns.
