Christmas in November

By Brian | November 10, 2006 | Share on Facebook

Ah, the joys of working in Rockefeller Center.

When I came to work this morning, there was an 88-foot pine tree sitting on a flatbed truck in front of my office building. I just went to grab some lunch, and the tree now has its lower limbs wrapped tightly in twine, and is hanging, horizontally, from a giant crane right next to the famous Rockefeller Center Ice Rink.

By the time I go home this evening, I’m guessing they’ll have it upright again, where it will stay for the remainder of the year, while workers spend the next few weeks covering it with 30,000 lights and a 550-pound Swarovski cyrstal star.

It’s times like this I regret not having a camera phone with me (stupid blackberry). Best I can do is this press photo from when they cut it down in Connecticut. Trust me – it look basically the same now, just much bigger, and surrounded by concrete, not grass.
