The Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center in New York was lit last Wednesday, Dec. 28, in front of thousands of New Yorkers and tourists who were in the big apple to attended the annual event and enjoy some Christmas magic.
Francesca Cavallo, our correspondent in NY was there and reported that the square, located on 30 Rockefeller Plaza, between West 48th and West 51st Streets and 5th and 6th Avenues, was extremely crowded and it was hard to get any further than the metro stop.
“The 2012 Christmas three is taller than last year. Same decorations, but same magic, though,” Cavallo said.
Cavallo said it always amazes her to see the city of New York turning into a Christmas fairy tale during the holidays.
Christmas songs and smells are all over Manhattan. In front of the three, a screen was projecting music shows that spread the magic all over the plaza.
The Tree will remain lit and can be viewed until January 7, 2013.
