Watch Macy's Install One Of Those Scary-Big Christmas Trees

If you've ever wandered by the towering, glitter-clad trees in the middle of malls and department stores and wondered how in the world employees got 'em up (and what prevents them from crashing down and consuming you), you're not alone. Macy's just shared with us a video documenting their stunning Christmas tree from start to finish. We were surprised to learn it's not unlike how a mechanic works on your car. Were we wrong to think they just had a really big box in the basement?
