It’s 72 degrees, but merry Christmas: Rockefeller Center’s 2015 tree goes up (PHOTOS)
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Rockefeller Plaza — even if it doesn't feel like it, in 72 degree weather.
The 2015 Rockefeller Center Christmas tree — 78-foot tall, 47-foot in diameter, 10-ton Norway Spruce has — made its way through the streets of New York City Friday, continuing an annual tradition that dates to 1931.
This year's tree comes from the home of Albert Asendorf and Nancy Puchalski in Gardiner, NY. Any tree at least 75 feet tall and 45 feet in diameter may be chosen. The last time a Rockefeller Center Christmas tree came from New Jersey was 2012, when a tree from Flanders was chosen.
The tree will be lit on Dec. 2, and stay up until January 6.
