Rockefeller Center will commemorate its 90th Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony Wednesday night at 8 p.m. ET. The decades-long holiday tradition dates back to 1931, in the midst of the Great Depression.
According to the Rockefeller Center website, Rockefeller Center workers at the time put their money together to buy a 20-foot tall Balsam Fir, adorned with garlands that were handmade by the workers' families, in hopes of lifting Christmas spirits. Two years later, Rockefeller Center chose to make the tree an annual holiday tradition – holding its first official lighting ceremony in 1933.
Over the years, each towering tree that lights up Midtown Manhattan has been unique. In 2022, the Rockefeller Christmas tree is a 14-ton Norway Spruce that is 82 feet tall and 50-feet wide, according to the Rockefeller Center. It's decorated with more than 50,000 lights on five miles of wire and a stunning Swarovski star, weighing about 900 pounds and coated in 3 million crystals.
