Lego Christmas tree – level 3

14-12-2015 07:00

Merry Brickmas! This isn’t just any ordinary Christmas tree. It’s a 26-foot (8 metres) Christmas tree made from Lego.

Many fun childhood Christmas memories involve Lego, but this display takes the toy’s association with the festivities to a whole new level.

Made of hundreds of thousands of the popular toy brand’s plastic bricks, the enormous Lego tree took experts weeks to construct and took designer Hannah Reed almost fifty hours to create. And the cherry on top of the cake – or in this case, the angel on top of the tree – is festive fairy made of 4,000 Lego pieces and weighing in at a whopping 6.5 kilograms.

Lego, the toy for building children’s dreams, as well as impressive holiday displays.

Difficult words: Brickmas (this is a pun – Lego toys are small bricks and this stands for Christmas), association (a connection), enormous (very big), the cherry on top of the cake (something special that is added at the end to something else that is special), fairy (a small person with magical powers), whopping (very large).
