I love the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. It’s big, has five gazillion lights and people ice skate around it all winter long. What’s not to like? My favorite part, though, is watching the interviews the media does with the family who donates the tree. They’re usually from a Northeastern state close to New York and have spent years driving into the city to check out the Rockefeller tree.
But now it’s not just any tree. It’s their tree. The most famous Christmas tree on the planet came right out of their yard. You can tell it’s a huge deal for them. It’s like a member of your family winning American Idol.
