There's one Christmas tree you have to see this holiday season. And it's not in New York City.

There is no other tree in the world like the one at Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York. It stands 14 feet tall and is made up of over 2000 hand-blown glass ornaments. No two of the ornaments, which are created by a team of glassmakers, are the same.

Lights illuminate the glass tree from the inside, turning into one giant, festive lightbulb.
