11 Million Dollar Christmas Tree

What an unlikely place to drop a $11 Million Christmas tree. Decked out with 181 diamonds, that tree better have some heavy security.

That's when you know you have too much money. Don't they also pretty much use slave labor there for their construction projects?

What is sad is the fact that every time we say "fill 'er up", we are making that tree!

A christmas tree? I'm not christian but from what I know about it, raised as one, this truly exemplifies what the christian holiday is all about(not). From manger to billion or so dollar hotel with 11 mil christmas tree. Wow.....come a long way! Maybe the underlying intent was to point out how far people have strayed?

Why would Muslims do that? I don't think any thought went into it, just spend money, lots of it.
