top-10-most-expensive-christmas-trees

Cast in gold, adorned with diamonds, hung with tiny bottles of cognac and other Christmas trees, the cost of which can boggle the imagination.

 

The owners of the London hotel Claridge's have a tradition: every year they turn to the famous designer with a request to create an exclusive Christmas tree that will delight the guests' eyes. John Galliano, Alber Elbaz, Callie Ellis contributed to the creation of a festive atmosphere at Claridge's. This was the Tree for 2020.

It is not known how much it costs the hotel to collaborate with a fashion guru, but it is obvious that we are talking about tens of thousands of pounds. However, in history there are cases when much more impressive sums were spent on Christmas trees. In the Forbes ranking there are 9 trees, whose cost would amaze even Santa Claus.

 

Christmas tree in precious stones

Cost: $ 11 million

 

The most expensive Christmas tree in history was installed at the luxury Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi in 2010. The cost of the tree itself did not exceed several thousand dollars, but in the case of Christmas tree decorations, the bill was already in the millions: pearls, gold, diamonds, sapphires, and emeralds were used in their creation. Not only precious balls were hung on the tree, but also jewelry: watches, bracelets, necklaces. Such a pompous celebration of Christmas in a Muslim country seems unfounded, but the administration of the Emirates Palace is guided not by national customs, but by the requests of wealthy guests. For example, the hotel has a vending machine selling gold bars, and the rate includes the use of a private jet.

 

Golden tree

Cost: $ 4.2 million

 

The Japanese jeweler Ginza Tanaka has been surprising the audience with themed Christmas masterpieces for several years. For example, in 2007 he cast a 20-kilogram gold Santa Claus, and a year later a golden tree appeared at a cost of more than $ 1.5 million. This year Tanaka outdid himself. At the beginning of December, a Christmas tree appeared in his company store, the creation of which took about 40 kg of the precious metal. In appearance, it looks more like not a tree, but a multi-tiered carousel. Instead of horses - 50 figures of Disney cartoon characters: Cinderella, Little Mermaid, Pinocchio. And, of course, Mickey Mouse: Tanaka has been not indifferent to this character for a long time and already managed to make a golden copy of it several years ago.

 

Flower tree

Cost: $ 1.8 million

 

For the cost of a Christmas tree to reach astronomical sums, it itself does not have to be gigantic. In 2007, in one of the shopping centers of the Japanese chain Takashimaya, a tiny Christmas tree went on sale, which only a millionaire could afford. Its design was developed in cooperation with the French flower boutique Claude Quincaud. The tree consisted of several hundred miniature dried roses. On the petals of each of them, like dew drops, there were diamonds brought from Australia and South Africa - only about 400 pieces with a total weight of 100 carats. A nice addition was a Teddy bear with a diamond pendant. However, no one was willing to purchase this Christmas souvenir.

 

Diamond tree

Cost: $ 1.005 million

 

Hanging toys on a Christmas tree is a thing of the past: diamonds look much better on it. Apparently, representatives of the Singapore jewelry house Soo Kee proceeded from such considerations, deciding to create a Christmas tree at a cost of over a million dollars. For its decoration, 21,798 diamonds with a total weight of 913 carats were used. 3762 crystal beads were placed on graceful twigs. All this splendor was illuminated by almost five hundred lamps. The height of the tree reached six meters, and its weight was three tons. Installed in a large shopping center, the tree was guarded round the clock, but there were no people willing to encroach on diamond jewelry.

 

Capitol tree

Cost: about $ 1 million

 

The main Christmas tree in the United States is tacitly considered to be the one that shines with bulbs on Rockefeller Plaza in the center of New York. For the right of primacy, a spruce tree, whose place is at the Washington Capitol, may well compete with her. A tree grown in a nursery sometimes has to be transported to the Congress building across the country, the height of a tree can exceed 20 m, and to decorate a giantess, thousands of lamps are required, which must be firmly fixed on thorny branches. It is not surprising that its transportation, installation and registration cost the state treasury a round sum. On the other hand, the tree brings people so much joy that it is not a pity to spend a million dollars on it: the solemn ceremony of lighting the lights becomes a holiday in itself.

 

 

Christmas tree from Swarovski

Cost: about $ 500,000

 

In order to justify the title of the main specialist in rhinestones, the Swarovski company every year entertains fans of its products with designer Christmas trees, which shimmer with all the colors of the rainbow. The most notable of these was collected in 2010 in the center of Hong Kong. The tree was a thirty-meter high cone. On its face was a pattern made up of more than 20 million gold and silver Swarovski crystals specially shipped from Austria. In the daylight, the "tree" did not look very impressive, but in the evening and at night, when the lighting was on, the tree made a great impression: tourists admitted that from afar it could be confused with a Hong Kong skyscraper.

 

Charity tree

Cost: $ 500,000

 

Unlike his eastern counterparts, American jeweler Steve Quick decided to create a Christmas tree that was supposed to bring not only aesthetic pleasure, but also practical benefits. The tree, made of 18-carat gold, was covered with a scattering of diamonds that played the role of crisp snow. At the top was a platinum star with a 4.52 carat diamond. For a couple of weeks, the tree languished in a shop window, and then it was put up for auction on eBay. All the money raised from the sale went to the American Cancer Society. Steve Quick took care of those who could not afford such an expensive purchase: he developed budget silver-plated and gilded miniature copies of the Christmas tree for $ 20 and $ 25, respectively.

 

Christmas tree from Tiffany

Price: € 350,000

 

In December, residents of Milan prefer to leave the city, or even the country, but if you believe the results of opinion polls, in 2010 many of them changed their habits and stayed at home. The Milanese motivated their decision, in particular, by the fact that a new attraction appeared on the Piazza del Duomo - a Christmas tree presented to the fashion capital by the jewelry company Tiffany & Co. At the base of the tree, decorated with tens of thousands of lanterns, there was a shop, decorated in the style of the famous delicate turquoise box. A portion of the proceeds from sales were donated to charities. Despite this, the rector of the Milan cathedral expressed dissatisfaction with the fact that a commercial organization was interfering with the traditions of the light Christian holiday.

 

Christmas tree under degree

Cost: £ 35,000

 

The management of the fashionable London Sofitel hotel never for a moment forget that alcoholic libations during the December holidays are no less important than giving gifts. In 2010, an unusual Christmas tree appeared in the lobby of the hotel, which was a structure of dark gray metal. Instead of balls and candles, small bottles of Louis XIII cognac gleamed on it. They were made by hand by the craftsmen of the Baccarat company, which is considered almost the world leader in the production of crystal products. The tree was crowned with an exclusive smoky blue chandelier. Hotel guests had the opportunity to book a £ 2,900 Christmas spa program, which, in addition to treatments, included a gift - an exquisite decoration from Baccarat.

30-funny-christmas-trees-memes-that-are-going-virual-during-coronavirus-lockdown

An important tradition associated with the Christmas holiday is the decoration of the Christmas tree. It is said about the tree that it is a tree of life due to the fact that it stays green all the time.

 

The Christmas tree was decorated, at first, with fruit, paper flowers or biscuits. In time, it was decorated with all sorts of wonders, including: glass balls, tinsel, chocolates, light fixtures, etc.

 

There is also the custom of placing a star on the top of the Christmas tree, a symbol of the star that guided the magicians to Bethlehem. This star is said to bring good luck and fulfill desires.

 

In addition to the Christmas tree, Christians adorn the so-called Christmas wreaths, hung on the front doors symbolize health and luck, and their round shape represents the eternity of love that never fades.

 

Another plant used to decorate houses around Christmas and New Year is mistletoe. Mistletoe is said to be a healing plant, symbolizing, in some peoples, harmony and peace. Also, the kiss under the mistletoe makes love in a couple stronger and stronger.

 

But this year the Christmas tree may look different, because 2020 was a difficult year, people are hoping for good for 2021. We Bemorepanda have chosen the funniest ideas and memes with Christmas trees for this year.|

tips-for-a-merry-christmas-2022-with-your-pet-your-guide-for-the-safety-of-your-little-friend-during-winter-holidays

On Christmas we celebrate and have fun with family and friends, but this period can be a source of stress for pets. There is a possibility that your four-legged friend will get sick because he is eating something he shouldn't or for other reasons.


So Bemorepanda gives you a small guide to help your non-speaking friend get through the holidays safely and happily.


Stress. During the Christmas period, many pets can suffer from the stress caused by this period. Many things, such as the arrival of friends and family to visit, loud noises, fireworks and excited children running around can trigger stress. Cats are the most sensitive, because any change in their daily routine can trigger stress. One tip to help them is to give them a quiet and safe refuge. You can put their bowls of food and water in a quiet bedroom. You can also consider using pheromone products or herbal medicines that will help you relax and calm down.


The decorations. Christmas is not Christmas without a big Christmas tree covered with lights and globes. The decorations help us make the house have a festive aura, but for dogs and cats they can be something new to play with or worse, something new to eat.


Ball-loving dogs may not be able to resist the temptation to play with the shiny glass globes. Cats may not be able to see the sound of a bell. For the safety of pets, monitor their activity and keep these objects as far away from them as possible.


These ornaments can cause gastrointestinal problems (the object may become blocked or cause cuts). Also, depending on the materials used to make them, some ornaments can be toxic when ingested.


Tinsel and ribbons. Cats really like to play with strings on which various toys are hung, and the tinsel, being shiny, is even more attractive. Although tinnitus is not poisonous, if it is eaten it can cause intestinal damage and surgery may be needed to remove it. The same goes for ribbons. If portions of the ribbon are food, they can in the worst case cause death of the animal by asphyxiation or, if they reach the intestine, they can cause injuries. And in the case of globes, you have to be careful. Hanging on the branches of the tree, the cat will find them as the perfect toys. If you accidentally break a globe, it can be cut into shards.


In order for these things not to happen, it would be good to get your four-legged child used to the decorations and the Christmas tree, or to install it in a room where he does not have access.


Plants. Some festive plants are poisonous. Poinsettia, for example, can cause hypersalivation, lethargy, vomiting and depression. There are other plants, such as mistletoe that can cause vomiting and diarrhea. The fir tree, although not considered toxic, can become dangerous if the needles are ingested or not collected after they have fallen. They can cause cushioning or intestinal damage. So it's a good idea to make sure those falls are collected regularly.


House lily (Amaryllis) is a very popular plant during the winter season. Flowers and leaves are toxic to animals, and the flower bulb is even more toxic. If your pet has ingested flowers or leaves, it will suffer from vomiting, excessive salivation and diarrhea. If the animal has managed to eat from the bulb, especially in large quantities, it can cause weakness, tremor, seizures and changes in blood pressure.


Christmas lights. If your furry likes to play with cables, then it is important to keep it away from the lights in the Christmas tree when they are on. If you nibble them while they are on, they will transmit a fairly large shock that will be fatal. My advice is not to leave the lights on when you sleep or when you are away from home.


Electric shock can be fatal to your pet. Electric shock can cause fluid to build up in the lungs, called non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema. This condition can cause respiratory problems and can be fatal.


Lighted candles. They must be kept on a stand, at a height that curious quadrupeds cannot reach.


A burn in the mouth can cause significant pain, and can lead to food refusal in the case of pets. If you notice that your pet is reluctant when it comes to food, salivates excessively or shows signs of sore mouth (for example, does not want to play with his toys), seek medical attention immediately.


The food. Christmas is for us the period when we forget about diets and pamper ourselves with delicious dishes. Christmas dishes are not only tempting for us, but also for them, especially if they are left at their fingertips. It would be best to store them carefully and not give them away (not even a little).


Walnuts. These nuts, especially macadamia nuts, can be toxic and cause muscle weakness, hypothermia and tremor in dogs. For cats this food is forbidden.


The bones. Whether you are cooking chicken, turkey, pork or beef, avoid giving your companion bones. These, once cooked, are quite brittle and can cause many injuries both in the pharynx and in the lining of the stomach and intestines, and if not intervened quickly can be fatal.


Alcohol. Many of us enjoy one or two glasses of alcohol. But don't forget the unattended glass if you have a dog around. Pets have a very low tolerance to alcohol, which causes serious liver damage.


Onions and related vegetables (garlic and leeks) should be kept away from them, as they can cause weakness, depression and lethargy.


Grapes, raisins and sultanas. These fruits are very dangerous for both dogs and cats. If eaten within 24 to 72 hours of ingestion may cause kidney failure.


Chocolate is dangerous because it contains an ingredient called theobromine. If your quadruped eats chocolate, it causes vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, changes in heart rate and, in severe cases, seizures. If you want to treat your fur with something sweet, you can get special chocolate for him from the pet shop.


Gifts. At Christmas you can treat your companion with a multitude of gifts, but you have to make sure that they do not hurt him. For example, if you want to take a collar from your cat, it must be of the "quick release" type, so that if your cat is caught with the collar in a tight place, it can be released. The same goes for dogs.


Christmas Tree. The most common species of natural Christmas trees are fir, pine and forest pine. In general, these trees are not very toxic, but the more the pet eats, the higher the level of toxicity.


Christmas tree-specific oils can cause irritation to the mouth and stomach, causing excessive salivation or even vomiting. The needles of these trees are not easily digestible and can cause gastrointestinal irritation, vomiting, obstruction or puncture.


Make sure your pets do not have access to the water of the Christmas tree (if you have it in a pot). Dogs and cats can get sick from preservatives, pesticides, fertilizers or other agents such as aspirin, which can often be found in water to keep the tree in good condition. It is best to keep the water for the tree in a covered pot.


Natural Christmas trees are not the only problem. Artificial firs may contain toxic and indigestible materials that can cause intestinal obstruction.


The good thing about artificial firs is that the materials they are made of are stinging and usually not pleasant to chew. Most of the time the animals will not consume large amounts of these materials.\


Take care of you and your loved ones on this holiday!


Merry Christmas 2022! HO-HO-HO
