Take a Sneak Peek at This Year’s Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree
One of the most iconic signs of the holiday season is undoubtedly the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. Let’s take an early sneak peek at this year’s gargantuan Christmas tree!

Halloween is over in a matter of hours, time to strap in for Christmas. It feels like we start celebrating it sooner every year, pretty soon people will be trick or treating as Santa and reindeer. We don’t know about you, but we don’t start getting excited about the holidays until the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree goes up. Let’s take a look at the tree that will be doling out healthy doses of Christmas spirit this year.

This year’s Rockefeller Center Christmas tree comes from State College, Pennsylvania and is a Norway Spruce lit up with over 50,000 multi-colored, energy-efficient LED lights with its apex adorned with a Swarovski star.

The Norway Spruce will be cut down on Thursday, November 9, and arrive in the city on Saturday, November 11. Then the moment we’re all waiting for, the live broadcast of “Christmas in Rockefeller Center” on NBC, will end with the lighting ceremony on Wednesday, November 29. We can enjoy the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree until it comes down on Sunday, January 7, 2018.

Last, but certainly not least, here’s this year’s tree in all of its glory:
