'Tis the season
As December approaches, New York gears up for a sparkling spectacle. Today, the 91st Rockefeller Centre Tree lighting in New York City, will bring you festive vibes. In 1931, hardworking builders put up a balsam fir as they wanted to show gratitude for their jobs amidst the bleakness of the Great Depression. Gone are the days of simply plugging in some lights; now this towering Norway spruce, as seen, is adorned with over 50,000 multicoloured LED lights and topped with a Swarovski crystal star. Just wait until the tree—sometimes as tall as 27 metres—is illuminated; it is a full-blown extravaganza with musical performances and celebrity sightings. This mesmerising glow of the tree marks the official arrival of the holiday season in the city that never sleeps, and you definitely don't want to miss it!
