Last year's tree

While the big tree lighting extravaganza will likely still take place on November 28th as scheduled, the arrival of the tree itself has been delayed due to the upcoming storm. Each year in early November, New Yorkers raucously celebrate as a tall, tourist tree's carcass gets dragged through the city streets, where it is eventually greeted by Al Roker at its final resting spot: Rockefeller Center. But this year we'll have to wait a little bit longer until we see the corpse make its journey and get propped up, Weekend At Bernie's style. The big day was supposed to be November 9th, but Rock Center just Tweeted: "JUST IN: Due to the current weather forecast, the tree will arrive later than expected. As always, we will keep you posted. Thank You."

We'll update you as soon as we hear when our biggest annual arboricide will be taking place.
