This humongous Lego Christmas tree in Sydney is a crowd stopper




Just when you thought Christmas couldn't get any better, along comes a Lego Christmas tree.
The 10-metre tall tree is stopping pedestrians and office workers in their tracks in Pitt Street Mall, Sydney. The tree took five people, 1,200 hours and half a million bricks to make it the tallest Lego tree in the Southern Hemisphere. It also has baubles the size of basketballs and features a unique Aussie touch by incorporating a koala and Santa with a surfboard.
If the Lego feature alone doesn't get you excited (coal for you), how about lights that turn on in time with Christmas carols?
The impressive tree was built by Australian Lego Certified Professional, Ryan McNaught, also known as 'The Brickman'. McNaught is a LEGO extraordinaire who recently built a 70,000 brick Melbourne Cricket Stadium and has also created a model of the Sydney Opera House. There are only 13 Lego Certified Professionals in the world, and McNaught is the only one in the Southern Hemisphere.
"I'm incredibly proud to be bringing this impressive Lego Christmas tree to life for Australian fans," McNaught said in a statement. "It's my biggest build to date." He also revealed that within the tree there are secret touches on closer inspection, as is common with big Lego models.
On Thursday night, the tree will have its official launch accompanied by 400 singers from Sydney Philharmonic Choir. It is pretty clear, Christmas just outdid itself.
