    San Jose’s iconic Christmas In The Park breaks the Guinness World Record for the most illuminated Christmas trees in a single area. The final count for illuminated Christmas trees in Christmas In The Park is 600. Every tree was sponsored and decorated by local groups, including Boy Scout troops, local businesses, clubs, and high schools.

    The record was held by the Hallmark Channel by setting 559 trees in New York City in 2015. The official video was sent and confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records as they counted every tree shown.

    Broken garbage disposals and relighting water heater pilot lights are common maintenance issues during this time of the year as well.
