You know it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas once the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree is up and lit for the holiday season. Some of the more exciting NYC events in November happen to be all the tree-lighting ceremonies during the merriest time of year, and Rockefeller Center’s massive Norway spruce is certainly no exception. Sure, the landmark is a tourist magnet, but you can’t beat the view of the twinkling tree while ice skating on The Rink before warming up with some winter cocktails. To get you excited for this year’s winter wonderland, we’ve compiled the best photos of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree lit up over the years. Enjoy!
