Festivus Pole can't comepete with World's Largest Christmas Tree - The 79th annual lighting of the World's Largest Christmas Tree in Wilmington North Carolina was held last Thursday night at 6pm at Wilmington's Hilton Park.

Covered with spanish moss, the massive oak tree  is believed to be more than 400 years old and has been adorned with 5,250 bulbs.

It first was lit in 1928 with over 500 multicolored lights.

The tree lighting event also coincided with the arrival of Mr. & Mrs. Santa.

For the very first time, the ornaments were constructed by local school students.

The world's largest living Christmas tree shines nightly and is available for viewing between now and Christmas at 407 Hilton St. Wilmington, NC.
