World Famous 2022 Rockefeller Tree Chosen to Light Up Christmas
The world's most famous Christmas tree has finally been chosen.
The 2022 Rockefeller tree is a 90-year-old Spruce that comes in at 82 feet, 14 tons. The Lebowitz family donated the tree from their yard in Queensbury, New York.
The tree will arrive in New York City on November 12 to prepare for its big debut. It'll be wrapped in more than 50,000 multi-colored, energy-saving LED lights and topped with a star covered in 3 million Swarovski crystals.
Live Tree Lighting
The official tree lighting will take place during "Christmas in Rockefeller Center" on NBC on November 30. Or you can see the 90th Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree in person. It'll be on display between West 49th and 50th streets and Fifth and Sixth avenues. It'll be lit daily from 6 AM to 12 AM and 24 hours on Christmas Day. On New Year’s Eve, it will be lit from 6 AM to 9 PM.
The 2021 tree, for the first time, came from the state of Maryland. It was cut down on Thursday, November 11, and arrived in New York City two days later.
The 2020 tree came from Oneonta and was relentlessly made fun of on social media when it first arrived in Rockefeller Center.
Sad to Spectacular
But the joke was on everyone. The tree went from Charlie Brown sad to Rockefeller Center ready in a Christmas miracle, proving all you need is a little faith.

No matter how this year's tree looks when it first arrives in New York City, we know from past experience that it'll be a beautiful symbol of the holiday season.
