Rockefeller Christmas Tree lastly brings the glow it deserves throughout the lighting ceremony
2020 was a disappointing year to say the least. So much was the excitement for Christmas – or more precisely for the end of the year – palpable.
However, people's excitement was noticeably dampened when they saw the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree arrive from Oneonta, New York on November 14th. The spruce, believed to embody the spirit of the holiday, looked better suited for a pre-Christmas nightmare.
One Instagram user said, "This tree looks like 2020." Another person was friendlier and described the tree simply as "scarce," a far nicer way of saying that it looked like the houseplants we all stressed out to buy this spring.
And since it took an estimated 80 years for the tree to grow to its 75 feet tall, there was little hope that it would become fuller overnight.
The Rockefeller Center team managed to pull it off, however, and frankly, with the help of super glue and Swarovski crystals, this tree had a big glow.
