And, more specifically: Brisbane. Hey, it’s on Australia’s eastern edge, right?
Besides, that star atop the tree in the photo above is downright miraculous, itself. How? I’ll get to that.
First, there’s something you should know about the tree itself. It’s nearly seventy feet high, and the 16,000 lights on it are solar powered, making Brisbane’s the largest solar powered Christmas tree in the world. Can you say, Hallelujah?!
But, you ask, where are the solar panels? They’re right there, in plain sight. What better shape for a solar array than a star?
Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays to all!
(Especially to Life in Brisbane, where the picture of the solar star first appeared.)
