For over twenty-five years one of Edmonton's large churches, Central Pentecostal Tabernacle, has produced "The Singing Christmas Tree." The tree stands 35 feet high and is illuminated with 4,785 lights and thousands of pieces of tinsel. A choir of 125, assembled from the bottom to the top of the tree, sing Christmas carols during Advent to the invited public.
