Sri  Lankans walk past a Christmas tree displayed in Colombo on December 25. Sri  Lanka  surpassed the world record for the tallest artificial Christmas tree despite building delays forcing organizers to prune the structure by almost half, an official said. Cricket legend Arjuna Ranatunga initiated plans to build the record-breaking tree in  Sri  Lanka’s capital Colombo, but ran into opposition from the Catholic church which said the money would be better spent on charity.
