I was rushing to a conference for my job and had to stop and see the arival of this beautiful "Tree". It is a tradition for me and I could not miss it. After the conference was done I was feeling so sick and passed to see if they had put the "Tree" in it's spot before I went home and it had!
This year's tree is a 76 foot Norway spruce from the home of school teacher from Easton, Connecticut. The 10 ton tree was cut on Wednesday, Nov. 11, 2009, and made the 50 mile journey from Easton, CT to Rockefeller Center in New York City.
Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting, December 2, 2009, through the years they have made this ceremony biggiger and bigger with lots of famous acts. I have gone so many times but find that watching at home with a group of dear friends is a great way to celebrate the Holiday Season and the lighting of this beautiful "Tree".
