Sri Lanka completes building the world's tallest Christmas tree

The world's tallest Christmas tree has been unveiled in Sri Lanka just in time for Christmas after four months of hard work by hundreds of helpers.

The 73-meter (238-foot) artificial tree in the country's capital, Colombo, is 18 meters (59 feet) taller than the current record holder, organizers said.
The tree's steel-and-wire frame is covered with a plastic net decorated with more than 1 million natural pine cones painted red, gold, green and silver, 600,000 LED bulbs and topped by a 6-meter (20-foot)-tall shining star.
