Christmas time is here, which means happiness, cheer, and over-the-top Christmas trees are coming in faster than Santa's sleigh to an honor student's house. All across the globe, massive Christmas trees are turning up in malls, public squares, and even in the middle of bodies of water. Christmas trees from around the world come in both real and synthetic forms, and some pretty creative Christmas trees make a strong case for the artificial tree. From Stockholm to Osaka, giant Christmas trees bring light and celebration wherever they happen to rise up. Even though Christmas traditions from around the world differ from country-to-country, the grand Christmas tree appears to transcend borders altogether.
