Rockefeller Christmas Tree
The 74 foot, 75 year old Norway Spruce is going to be ready for its close up! On November 30th the tree will be more than spruced up with 30,000 LED environmentally friendly lights, and topped off with Swarovski crystals, 25,000 of them to be exact, in the shape of a star. The tree lighting ceremony draws a crowd well into the tens of thousands and that’s not including the at home viewers watching the broadcast across the globe. To be sure you get the most spectacular view, enter Rockefeller Center from 5th Ave making your way between the horn blowing angels. The view from the 47th street entrance can’t even compare. If you don’t have to rush back to brave the crowds of holiday shoppers you must try skating at the ice rink where you’ll find yourself under the surveillance of Prometheus, representing the legend of Titan and the creation of fire on earth. The tree from Mifflintown, PA is perhaps the most recognized symbol of they holiday season in all of New York and is definitely not to be missed.
