The Rockefeller Tree was lighted on December 3rd! The tree is an eight ton, 72-f00t tall Norway Spruce. The tree will be on display until January 9th.

“This year’s tree was decorated with 30,000 energy-efficient LED lights on five miles of wire, topped with a 750-pound star made of 25,000 Swarovski crystals. It was donated by the Varanyak family in Hamilton Township, N.J.”

Last year’s tree was used to build homes for Katrina victims so those families made an appearance for this year’s lighting ceremony.Tens of thousands of people showed up. I love this time of the year!!

I am totally going to see the tree during winter break.
