American minister and author Norman Vincent Peale once said: "Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful." Yes, we agree with every bit of it and apart from the birth of Jesus, midnight masses, treats, carolling and presents, one thing that gets everyone excited is the Christmas tree.
Be it an artificial tree or a real one, decorating it is something that every family looks forward to. And when it comes to this decorations and lights, there are some countries, which are evidently way ahead. For instance, the tree lighting ceremony at the Rockefeller Centre in New York City is something no one wants to miss.
Complete with band performances and beefed up security, the lighting ceremony brings in the holiday cheer no matter what. And the tree is a sight to behold! Same is the case with the lighting at Washington DC near the White House.
If the US knows how to do Christmas, Europe knows it as well, if not better. Countries such as France, the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and Rome to name a few put up stunning Christmas trees each year and this year is no different.
Take a look at some of the world's most stunning and festive Christmas Trees, which make us wish these trees would stay all year long.
