The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree's lighting ceremony went off without a hitch, in spite of the heavy drenching NYC got yesterday. And while Mayor Bill de Blasio has traditionally pressed the button to illuminate the tree, this year he ceded the honors to a more adorable New Yorker: Three-year-old Carmen Baldwin, Alec Baldwin's daughter.

🎄 best button presser ever 🎄🎉

In addition to de Blasio and the Baldwins, Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon and many Today Show personalities—Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker and Hoda Kotb—counted down the tree lighting under a tent.

The 94-foot, 14-ton tree itself is an approximately 90-year-old Norway Spruce from Oneonta, NY. USA Today reports, "It is decorated with more than 50,000 multi-colored, energy-efficient LED lights strung on five miles of wire and powered by solar panels located atop the buildings at Rockefeller Center."

The tree's owner Graig Eichler said, "Even the morning when Rockefeller Center knocked on our door, we never really thought about it being a Christmas tree. We looked at the tree and said, ‘wow it’s a beautiful tree.’" The beautiful tree has now been murdered for our pleasure, yet it still needs 30 gallons of water a day.

The Rockefeller Christmas Tree, located in Rockefeller Plaza between West 48th and 51st Streets and Fifth and Sixth Avenues, will remain lit until January 7th. So midtown Manhattan, with all the holiday windows and White House North, should be pretty fun for the next month.
