The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, All Alit, Ain’t So Scrappy After All!

The 2020 Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree was lit up today following a few hours-worth of celebrity performances.

The surprise of the evening and perhaps the year wasn’t so much that they managed to carry out this little celebration in spite of the ongoing rise in COVID-19 infections through the city and the state – rather, it’s the fact that the tree from Oneonta, NY is actually a beauty to behold.

Many, far and wide, had ridiculed the tree since its arrival. It was described as representative of 2020 and all that we’ve had to suffer through the year. There was no mistaking the gaping space on its side as it was erected into place beside the Rink.

Little did anyone imagine how it may very well go down as one of the most beautiful holiday trees to stand at Rockefeller Plaza.

The event ended at 10:00 pm with the usual appearance of the city’s mayor, Bill de Blasio, alongside Rob Speyer, president of Tishman Speyer pressing the button that would light the tree.
