The Year ‘Round Christmas Tree at Green Acres, Harold Lloyd’s estate
Harold celebrated Christmas in spectacular fashion, lashing several huge  evergreens together to make a single monster Christmas tree, which he  strung with thousands of ornaments. One year he purchased the entire  Christmas display at Saks, tree included, to augment Greenacres’.  Meanwhile, his compound tree became more and more opulent. When the  project became too vast to disassemble, Lloyd fireproofed it and  celebrated Christmas all year long.
