Last night the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree was lit. The 79-foot tall, 12-ton Norway Spruce from Elkton, Maryland, was adorned with more than 50,000 energy-efficient multi-colored LED lights using five miles of wire. This year marks the 18th year a Swarovski Star tops the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree.
The ceremony featured performances by Alessia Cara, Harry Connick Jr., Norah Jones, Brad Paisley, Pentatonix, Rob Thomas, Carrie Underwood, the Broadway cast of the musical Come From Away, and the Radio City Rockettes. There was also a special appearance from President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden.
The tree will be lit daily from 6 am-12 am. On Christmas Day, it will be lit for 24 hours. And on New Year’s Eve, it will be lit from 6 am to 9 pm. Check out more at rockefellercenter.com.
