A floating Christmas tree in Brazil

Everyone knows that Brazil is a different country, hot, not only because of the climate but also because of the character of its inhabitants. When Christmas comes, it has a very original characteristic, probably more original and beautiful than samba itself, which is saying. For about fifteen years, a spectacular 85-meter high Christmas Tree has been placed in the waters of Rio de Janeiro , making it the largest floating Christmas tree in the world. In addition, this year it has incorporated 3D technology, so it is a delight for those who admire it, although there are probably those who want the classic fir tree of a lifetime and leave technological innovations for other things.

Rio se Janeiro turns to Christmas for another year and for this it does not skimp on decorations or, of course, on lights. In the bay of the city is where you can find the famous tree, in which no less than 1,500 people have worked and thanks to the novelty of 3D, its staging is much more spectacular, since it has many large white stars that seem to come to life to come out of the tree. For those who think that all this is wasteful, for four years the creators have taken into account climate change and used biodiesel for their operation, thereby reducing CO2 emissions and contributing to the conservation of the environment.

It took almost three months to build, and every year it has a different motto. This time it is the turn of A Story of Reunions . The tree was inaugurated by the city authorities and the event featured the performance of the singer Milton Nascimento , former Minister of Culture, as well as other national and international artists. The event could be followed live. If you are going to travel to Brazil, come and see this wonder that will continue to give birth until January 6.
