  Oldest Christmas tree: 124 year old tree set world record

 BATH, UK--One hundred and twenty-four years after it marked its first yuletide, the
14-inch tree originally bought in 1886 which now belongs to Paul Parker, 45, of Bath, England, valued at $1,585, sets the world record for the Oldest Artificial Christmas Tree.

  The mini-tree is made of a green fibrous material and sits on a base decorated with cherubs, Jesus and Mary.

   The World's Oldest Christmas Tree was passed down to him by his mother Janet, who received it from her great-great-aunt Lou in the 1940s, according to the Daily Mail newspaper.

   "She treasured it when she was alive, and my father Grahame is comforted that I will be carrying on the family tradition," Parker told the newspaper.

    The ornament was originally purchased for sixpence, but was valued at 1,000 pounds, or $1,585, in 2005 by the television show "Antiques Roadshow."

   "But putting a price to this kind of object is ridiculous," Parker told the Daily News. "As the oldest Christmas tree in history, it has no peers."

   On Christmas day 2010 the aged tree will be on display on the mantle piece of Mr Parker home as he shares a turkey dinner and glass of wine with his father.

    Guinness World Records has endorsed it as indeed the oldest Christmas tree in the world.

    The Guinness world record for the most lights lit simultaneously on a Christmas tree is 150.000 for the RTL-ChariTree, achieved by RTL Television GmbH, Germany.
