Be part of the magic this Christmas.

It reaches seven storeys high, attracts over 150,000 visitors each year and is made up of 375,000 twinkling lights. It’s that time of year again - when the Telecom Christmas Tree will light up Wellington’s summer skies for all to see.

This year, the Telecom Foundation will initiate the special lighting ceremony of the Tree that will take place on Friday 25 November from 7.30pm (with the tree lighting at 9pm) at Waitangi Park. In the spirit of Christmas, everyone is encouraged to bring a gift, large or small, to the Tree for children in need.

The Telecom Foundation is the umbrella organisation for all Telecom’s community and charitable giving, with a focus on giving Kiwi kids a better future. A portion of the gifts collected in Wellington will be delivered to children in Christchurch who have had it particularly tough in recent times.

Santa will be on call too, with the much-loved tradition of Telecom’s Santaline coming back to capture all Wellingtonian kids’ wishlists for 2011. Telephone boxes to ring the North Pole will be set up at the Tree, and the national 0800 line will open the same day.

Other Trees will also be placed in Auckland and Christchurch, with each Tree linked to the others via fibre enabling anyone visiting the Telecom Tree website to design a light sequence, and watch it play live on a Tree.

Wellington’s Tree will play host to a spectacular lightshow from dusk until dawn and be open all day, every day, until Boxing Day where the lights will switch off again for another year.

The Telecom Christmas Tree is a truly magical place, where many go for reflection and peace – a special pause in what is a very busy time of year!
