Rockefeller Christmas Tree to be Lit Today
Later today thousands will gather in Manhattan's Rockefeller Center for the lighting of the Rockefeller Christmas Tree.
The annual spectacle has become a world famous symbol of the holidays.
The tree came from Flanders New Jersey- after surviving the strong winds of Hurricane Sandy.
Now it will light up the sky from Rockefeller Center- symbolizing much more than the start of the holiday season.
