If you want to get into the holiday spirit, you don’t have to go to New York City and stand in the freezing cold to do it. If waking up early, getting a first-come-first-serve spot on the sidewalk and constant elbowing and pushing is not your cup of tea, live streaming the Rockefeller Center tree lighting from the comfort of your home is probably the best present you will get this year.
Rockefeller is kicking off the magical winter season with their cherished tradition of the Christmas tree lighting ceremony. People from all over the world come to New York City to see the most famous Christmas tree beautifully lit up in the famous Rockefeller Center. It has been a tradition for seven decades and will continue to be for years to come. 30,000 lights will bring this tree to life… yes, 30,000 lights. That is a lot of lights.
There will be a lot of special performances and celebrity guests celebrating the Christmas holiday. So, grab a mug filled with warm hot cocoa, wear your favorite pajamas and fuzzy socks, and snuggle in your favorite cozy blanket to celebrate the Christmas holiday with amazing performances, a beautifully lit Christmas tree and appearances from your favorite celeb guests. What more could you ask for?
Want to visit the tree in person, but can’t go on Wednesday? Never fear because you will have plenty of time. The tree will be lit until January 7, 2018. So, make plans to go see it in person and take selfies. It will be worth it! The visiting hours for the tree are every day from 5:30 A.M to 11:30 P.M. And on January 7, 2018, you will only be able to visit it until 9:00 P.M. because after that, the tree will be taken down.
