Christmas in NYC

A little something for those of you who want to take a break from your online shopping.

Rockefeller Center

The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree has been a tradition since 1931.  It’s beautiful, and huge.  The kind of tree I wish I could have in my living room.  🙂  This year it tops out at 72 feet tall, and weighing 8 tons.  For your reading pleasure, here’s the Wiki on the tradition, and the official Tree in NYC website, which is pretty cool, but doesn’t seem to have been updated since 2006.  For more up to date information, here’s an AP article about this year’s tree lighting.

Hope you enjoy little interesting things like this.  I know I do.  Must run now, trying to get the Christmas cards assembled.

Ho ho ho!
