The Parish of St. Peter’s Chains in Birzebbugia is once again aiming to set a national record with their Christmas celebrations by having the largest amount of Christmas trees and synchronised Christmas lights at once.
Volunteers from the community have been working hard over the last weeks to create a site never before seen in Malta as part of Milied fil-Pjazza
With 24 full-sized Christmas trees, 6.8km of wiring for 68,000 bulbs and a structure that reaches 40m, this year’s celebrations hope to follow up on last year’s record for largest Christmas tree used in a Maltese Christmas celebration.
The team behind the planning for the structures hope to break the record this weekend, on the 2nd and 3rd of December, and have invited everyone to come and join in with their celebrations.
People from all ages and walks of life have teamed up together to set this possible record-breaking display up in a matter of weeks, even though some of the main volunteers have been preparing for this event for months.
Volunteers were also supported by members of the Għaqda Armar tal-Parroċċa Birzebbugia who had set up last year’s record-breaking display.
Malta’s parishes are known for their beautiful Christmas celebrations and dedication to creating impressive sites during the holidays, and the team who worked on this display, along with the Birzebbugia community, are excited at the possibility – or probability, as they would say – of taking home another awesome Christmas record this weekend.
