Slideshow of the Worlds Best Hanging Holiday LightsTivoli Gardens-Copenhagen: Tivoli’s amusement park Christmas decorations were designed by John Loring of Tiffany and Co.  With 20 acres of trees, buildings and rides decked out with festive lights, this is the place to be if you happen to land in Copenhagen at Christmastime.

Plaza de Comunicaciones, Madrid: This awe-inspiring display occurs only on Christmas Eve at the new city hall in Madrid. Unusual in the sense that it combines a whole lot of smoke and fireworks with the Christmas lights, it will remind you that cultures around the world each have a different take on what constitutes a successful light display.

Dededo, Guam: Smack in the middle of the Micronesia Mall, this Christmas light display includes a holiday lights train as well as a 35 foot tree and lights that blink in time to music.  Most unusual is the aroma machine that pumps out the smell of Christmas’ familiar pine trees.

Harbor City, Kowloon, Hong Kong: Thousands of blinking light in this shopping area serve to make the whole experience an overwhelming and dizzying one.  When it comes to Christmas lights, if you’re looking for excess–this is the place!
