Even artificial Christmas trees are traditionally green. But this year, the World Trade Centre has put up a trendy LED Christmas Tree.

The LED Christmas tree is made up of 50,000 LED light bulbs which are connected to computer. The bulbs can flash red, yellow, white, blue and green.

They can also form different patterns, such as stars, snow and flowers, according to the music.

The designers spent six months working on the unique Christmas tree, which will be on display until January 1.

As a special Christmas treat, customers who spend more than HK$800 in the mall will be able to redeem a crystal music box.

Continuing the festive celebrations after Christmas, the World Trade Centre will present the '2008 minutes Countdown Dance Party'.

At 2.32pm on December 30, local and overseas dancers will start their routines. Groups will take it in turns to perform until midnight on January 1 to celebrate the start of the new year.

Japanese breakdancer Ono Aichi, 18, current holder of the Guinness World record for the most number of head spins in one minute, is one of the performers. He will attempt to break his own record during the event.
