This time of year carries with it countless traditions — building snowmen, hanging up the mistletoe, erecting a 30-foot-tall Christmas tree in a geopolitical hotspot to piss off your totalitarian neighbors to the North.
That last one is going down in South Korea, where a Christian group plans to put up a tower covered in Christmas lights, calling it a symbol of peace. (Video via Arirang)
