MEXICO CITY – Mexico City has been certified by Guinness World Records as having the world’s largest Christmas tree standing 110.35 meters (362 feet) high, 35 meters (115 feet) in diameter and weighing 330 tons.

The new record exceeds by 24 centimeters (9.5 inches) the Christmas tree in Aracaju, Brazil, the city that had held the record since 2007 with a tree 110.11 meters (361.25 feet) high.

Carlos Martinez, the representative of Guinness World Records, on Saturday certified the new record at Glorieta de la Palma, located on the Paseo de la Reforma, where the huge tree stands and will continue to be displayed for 36 days.

“The possibility existed that this would not break the record, since the height (of the Brazilian tree) was exceeded by only 24 centimeters, but finally we corroborated it and remain satisfied that there is no problem that now Mexico has this new Guinness” record, Martinez told reporters.

The lighting of the gigantic tree was carried out at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, marking the beginning of the Christmas festivities in the Mexican capital, where some 19 million people live.

Mexico City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard headed the tree-lighting ceremony, during which the Shola Cantorum orchestra and the Mariachi Gama Mil band played Christmas music.

Work has been going on since Oct. 29 on the huge Christmas decoration project, labor that has required about 200 Mexican and Brazilian workers, project manager Julio Galman told Efe.

The year-end festivities are sponsored 80 percent by private donations and 20 percent by the government of the Federal District.

One must have a mind of winter
To regard the frost and the boughs
Of the pine-trees crusted with snow;

And have been cold a long time
To behold the junipers shagged with ice,
The spruces rough in the distant glitter

Of the January sun; and not to think
Of any misery in the sound of the wind,
In the sound of a few leaves,

Which is the sound of the land
Full of the same wind
That is blowing in the same bare place

For the listener, who listens in the snow,
And, nothing himself, beholds
Nothing that is not there and the nothing that is.
