Right on cue, the LEGO Christmas Tree ushers in the season with a creatively impressive Christmas tree creation. Although it might be a premature statement, this particular holiday tree will blow all other attempts out of the water.

Located on the ground floor of St Pancras International station, the LEGO Christmas Tree took two whole months to build. Considering that the builders used over 600,000 bricks, that comes as no surprise. Soaring 12.2 meters high, the LEGO Christmas Tree boasts 172 branches and over 1,000 Lego baubles. More breathtaking than any mammoth tree New York City has ever put up at the Rockefeller Center, this tree will surely entice Londoners and visitors alike to check it out.

According to LEGO, the LEGO Christmas Tree is the tallest tree made using the toy building bricks.
