The People's Friend Special - - HERITAGE 29 -

The world’s largest float­ing Christ­mas tree sits on the calm wa­ters of the Lagoa Ro­drigo de Fre­itas. At full height it’s about 85 me­tres, and the star on the top alone weighs two tons. Around 75 miles of lights are used to dec­o­rate it, all of which run on biodiesel gen­er­a­tors, and af­ter the light­ing cer­e­mony each year it floats around the lake un­til Jan­uary 6.
