Whether or not to get a Christmas tree has always been a tough decision for me. But I think I have found the perfect answer: LEGOs!
Visitors to St. Pancras International in London know exactly what I am talking about. The station is now home to a 33-foot Christmas tree made entirely of LEGOs. It is in fact the tallest tree ever made from LEGOs, using 600K LEGOS and 172 LEGO branches.
The tree is adorned with over 1,200 Christmas ornaments made by kids from Edith Neville Primary School, Camden, and Copenhagen Primary School, Islington, as well as the Harpenden Explorer Scouts Unit. And LED lights are used as garland.
While I myself did not get to see it in person, a good friend of mine did, Andrew Burnett. He is the one who took most of these amazing photos.
The tree was created by Duncan Titmarsh of Bright Bricks, who has one of the coolest jobs ever, he is the UK’s only Certified LEGO Professional! Oh, and there are only 13 in the world! Duncan has turned his passion for LEGO into a full time job and has built all sorts of weird and wonderful things out of LEGO over recent years. The St Pancras International LEGO Christmas Tree is his most ambitious project to date.
The tree is on display until January 3rd.
