Oh Christmas tree…

World’s largest Christmas tree lights are turned on last night.

Thousands of people turned out in Rio de Janeiro for the lighting of the world’s largest floating Christmas tree in Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon. The 85-meter floating tree, adorned with 2.9 million lights and 1,600 Christmas ornaments, required 52 kilometers of cables to light.

A concert, featuring master of ceremonies Jose Mayer and singer Simone, officially inaugurated the Christmas celebrations, which will conclude the holiday season with a big party on New Year’s Eve.
