I made it to the Tree Lighting at Rockefeller last night! There were a lot of people there, but I managed to find a pretty damn good spot. I got there around 8:30 so I only had about a half hour to wait. It was worth the annoyance of all the people because it was beautiful! It was so nice to be there to see it lit, of course it would’ve been better if Derek was with me, but he was stuck at work : (
I went alone and I’m glad I did instead of skipping out all together. I managed to make a little movie of it being lit with my camera. I also took lots of before and after pictures.
*The video is almost 2 minutes long, I would recommend skipping to the half way point, which is closer to when the tree actually lights up.
