Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting

One of my most favorite holiday traditions is watching the lighting of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree. After the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade, the tree lighting is another step closer to Christmas.

Maybe I’m nostalgic, but I like to do a few things year after year, and also keep an eye out for things that can become traditions. For instance this year I found out that my youngest, at age 8, was enthralled with the debates and election coverage. So in 3 or 4 more years we’ll do it again.

This year the kids did the tree themselves (except for a couple on the higher branches). They had a blast and we weeded out some of those fragile balls that you can worry about being broke – no more worries for us!

Loving this time of year; loving experiencing all the sights and sounds of the city and the neighborhood! I really do think “it’s the most wonderful time of the year”.
