The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree was delivered to the building today and workers started to get it ready for the holidays. The 74-foot tree comes from Wayne, NJ (yes, where the Fountains of got their name from), and the Post has a touching story about the man who donated the tree: His late wife "loved the damn thing. She did a lot of fertilizing and it grew to a nice size and a nice shape." It is seriously yooge - the flatbed truck hauling it practically took up the whole street! We must say, we prefer putting the tree with the trunk down, versus that craziness about upside-down trees so there's more room for presents; our secret theory is that one should just use Christmas stockings for gifts: Think tiny gadgets and gift certificates!
This year's tree lighting will be on November 30.
