This is Not a Christmas Post

18 Nov


FUN FACT TIME: NYC’s Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree this year is 74 feet high, weighs 12 tons, and is from Norway a Norway Spruce. (My co-workers and I decided it would be a much better story if the tree actually came from Norway. What kind of magic would they have to use to get it here? A plane wouldn’t be able to get off the ground, and the tree would be dead by the time they’d boat it over here. People would puzzle over the tree magic for ages!)

Anyways… the actually back story is kinda cool too I guess. The tree comes from Mahopac, NY and was donated by a 12 year FDNY veteran who was a first responder on 9/11 and his family.

Now to decorate! The official tree lighting takes place on November 30 (well after Thanksgiving, as God intended!)
