Standing in the Rockefeller Center of Midtown Manhattan, the enormous Christmas tree decoration followed by the Joy of the World singing by the Main Street Gospel choir marks the festive spirits.
It is hosted every year in November, you can see it on display till at least the first week of January next year. Supported by wires and spike, the tree gets around 50,000 vibrant LEDs, star top and the Swarovski crystal star. If you want to have a guided Rockefeller Plaza tour, check the art installations or have a panoramic view of the Christmas decorations from the Rock Observation Deck, you will need tickets. Since 1931 Depression-era when the first Christmas tree (20-feet) was erected, this tradition was taken a notch higher with lighting, performances and colour-coded decorations based on significant episodes like World War II or the September 11 massacre or messages regarding renewable energy. The tree is contributed to the Habitat for Humanity for the betterment of house construction every year after the celebration.
