Must-See Christmas Trees in Cities Around the World

2012 marks the 99th celebration of Chicago's holiday tradition of an Annual Christmas Tree. First lit in Grant Park in 1913, the tree—which always comes from within 100 miles of Chicago's Loop neighborhood—was moved to Daley Plaza in 1966. This year's Colorado spruce is decorated with 14,600 multicolored lights. Photo: Courtesy of the City of Chicago
