Many wait for the lighting of the Christmas each year is brought to Rockefeller Plaza – intersection of Fiftieth Street and Fifth Avenue – to be ‘dressed’, embellished, colored and then worshiped.
They come from different states to flock to the event’s most successful year yet shorter. Waiting for hours by the lucky people who can take between the hurdles of the square in the afternoon, is rewarded by a special effect that lasts a few seconds.

Someone not too interested in the event offers to sell the pass entrance to figures certainly not cheap, and trying to take advantage of tourists. Others are content to watch when you turn on the spectacular mountain of branches covered with about 5 miles of lights and Swarovski crystals with the point of live national television.
