Holiday Trees You Don't Want to Miss

December 21st, 2011 - 1:57 PM

What screams "it's Christmastime!" louder than a beautifully decorated Christmas tree? Okay, maybe Santa. But Christmas trees surely are at the top of the list. And there are some amazing ones around the country. This Must-See Holiday Trees infographic, just released in the U-Pack press room, depicts the country's most festive firs, pines and spruces. Check it out!

I had no idea that the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree in New York ranges from 69 to 100 feet tall. And the Swarovski Star that has topped the tree since 2004 — do you have any idea how big it is? It's 9.5 feet in diameter and weighs 550 pounds! Who knew? Hurry if you haven't seen it yet; the tree normally comes down the 5th week after the ceremony or the 8th week after its arrival.

Okay, I don't want to spoil all of the surprises, but I'm also super impressed by the Coeur d'Alene Holiday Light Show in Idaho. Though I haven't seen it in person, I can only imagine the impressiveness of more than 30,000 twinkling lights on the largest living Christmas tree in the world — a 161 ft. Grand Fir. If you've ever seen it, I would love to hear about it!

All of the folks at U-Pack want to wish you and your family a very happy holiday season!
