The Origin of the Christmas Tree Tradition at Rockefeller Center

New York City is a magical place during the holiday season that is a treasure to witness. The famous Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree and holiday window displays in stores along Fifth Avenue provide a festive and colorful atmosphere to the city. The tradition of lighting a Christmas Tree in Rockefeller Center dates back to 1933 when 30 Rockefeller Plaza officially opened for business. The tradition has its origins during the construction of Rockefeller Center, as workers decorated a Christmas tree on Christmas Eve in 1931 to brighten up their work area.

      One of the places I really love to visit when I spend Christmas in New York. I feel like a child each time I go there.

      Volunteering my time for a wonderful organization called RECORDING FOR THE BLIND & DYSLEXIC a few years back, I attended their Holiday party. At this event a volunteer suggested that I walk a few blocks uptown to Rockefeller Plaza and see the Christmas tree. Following this advice, I was star stuck by what I saw. The tree was illuminated with colorful lights and many seasonal statues were sparkled.

      Last year was the first time in years that I skipped going to the city to enjoy walking around to get the Christmas spirit. I look forward to going in a couple of weeks. Going to walk around all day with friends.
