Trumpets will sound this Saturday in Gubbio on the Eve of the Immaculate Conception, as the world’s largest Christmas tree display once again comes to life.
The attraction, which takes up an entire mountainside in the medieval Italian town, is 2,100 feet tall and more than 1,000 feet wide.
The tree display shines throughout the holiday season, until the Day of Epiphany on Jan. 6.
For nearly 40 years, the Guinness Book of World Records has declared it the biggest Christmas tree display on the planet.
Fireworks, revelry and holiday music will fill the air this weekend to kick off the larger-than-life celebration.
The World's Largest Christmas Tree
The display rises up the slopes of Monte Ingino https://t.co/jpEd1kSZOX
outside of Gubbio, in Italy's Umbria region.
Composed of about 500 lights connected by
40,000 feet of wire, the 'tree' is a modern
marvel for an ancient city
