Publisher's Description

Rockefeller Center had its first Christmas tree even before any buildings rose to fill the space: in 1931, just after they cleared the site, construction workers decorated a small balsam fir with the most humble of ornaments, from garlands of paper to tin cans. Since, then the tree has become one of the wonders of the holiday season, as thousands of people come together to gaze at the bright and sparkling sight. For many, it one of the surest signs that Christmas is near.

The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree tells the story of this now-landmark calendar event. Not only does it provide background on how the tree is chosen, cut, transported, and decorated, as well as fun facts (it now has LED lights and after the holiday, it lumber is used for a Habitat for Humanity house), but it also follows at least one family in each decade whose pine ended up becoming one of New York's most popular tourist attractions. Handsomely bound, with full-color illustrations, this lovely gift book makes a great stocking stuffer and a special treat for anyone who has visted or dreams of visting  the  Rockefeller Center at Christmastime.

This gift set also includes a beautiful ornament that you can hang upon your own Christmas tree, honoring the tradition of the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree during your own holiday celebrations.
