Thanks Marina Very Happy Give me the good ole days before the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting became a National thing. Back in the day, they would light the tree around 5pm, so, when I was in college. We'd head over to the city after class, get a prime view spot arriving as late as 4pm watch the tree get light - then we'd go to dinner and watch it happen on TV all over again! Very Happy

We will have time for photos at Rockefeller Center either before or after the show at Radio City on December 19, 2009. Don't worry - it's literally just steps away, not a long walk at all!

lol! I'm with you Tina - it's too crazy to even attempt to watch it live anymore... I'll take a prime spot on my sofa in front of my TV on December 3rd though!

Guess I'll make the trip into the city sometime after December 3rd to see the tree in all it's glory. If 2009 is your first time to NYC during the holidays, you are in for a wonderful treat. All the stores decorate - it's really an incredible thing to behold!

This is a great little park behind the public library called Bryant Park and they have a tree and little shops and small ice rink there for the holidays.

Talk about timing - every year the local newscasters on NBC gather in front of the tree and tape a Christmas commerical of them singing a holiday song - I just happened to be there when they were filming it in 2007
