Christmas 2018 is around the corner and when we talk about Christmas two things instantly come in everyone minds – Santa Claus and Christmas Tree…..
This article is about a famous Christmas Tree…. It is World’s Largest Christmas Tree which is the Gubbio Christmas Tree on Mount Ingino in Italy’s Umbria region. It is 650-meters high …. Yes… let me explain you.
This is achieved by placing some series of illuminations of various types and colors along the slopes of the Ingino Mount, overlooking the beautiful medieval town of Gubbio.
This festive light installation stretches over 2,000 feet (more than five football fields) up the slopes of Mount Ingino, starting at the foot of the mountain behind the walls of the old town and reaching up to the Basilica of the Patron Sant’Ubaldo at the peak, where it’s topped off with a bright shooting star made of 200 white lights. This illumination or illuminated Christmas Tree can be seen throughout the town, as far as 30 miles away.
It was in 1981 when this largest Christmas Tree in the world lighted for the first time and since then it is illuminated every year during the holiday season.
The Gubbio Christmas Tree is switched every year, on the Eve of the Immaculate Conception, on 7th December and it remains active throughout the holiday season, until the day of Epiphany, on 6th January, or slightly beyond that.
