We’ve finally entered the Christmas season! As the Pumpkin Spice Lattes of the fall begin to disappear, the act of people putting trees in their houses and decorating them begins. Pretty weird tradition when you take a step back and think about it.
The average American doesn’t spend more than $300 on their tree and its decorations. But this post isn’t about the average Christmas tree – its about the craziest, most expensive Christmas trees in the world!
Then there’s the tree at the Ginza Tanaka jewelry store in Tokyo. The golden Christmas tree is valued at over $2 million. The 6.6 ft tall tree consists of 42 pounds of pure gold and wiring. Talk about excessive.
However, this tree isn’t even close to as expensive as the tree which stood in an Abu Dhabi hotel in 2010. The tree, standing at over 36 feet tall, was decorated with silver and gold ornaments and bows. Most of the value of the tree came from the fact that it was also decorated with diamond jewelry. The total value: over $11 million!!
Next, we have the Swarovski Christmas tree from 2013. Located in the Hong Kong International Airport, the tree was decorated with over a million Swarovski crystals. The estimated cost: about $15 million!
So, whats the most expensive Christmas tree you can buy online? That would be a 20 foot tall tree from ChristmasLightsEtc.com . It’s only $9,000!
