Sydney Christmas Tree Smashes New York Christmas Tree Record for Number of LED Lights

Chevy Chase's Clark Griswald and the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center, New York City emblazoned with 30,000 environmentally friendly LEDs, have been soundly beaten by Australian efforts. The City of Sydney, Australia last night threw the switch to light up their Christmas tree - and the 58,000 LEDs adorning it.
