Christmas at New York City's Rockfeller Center will feature a tree from New Jersey that its owners call a "miracle."

The 72-foot tall Norway spruce comes from the Tree King nursery in Hamilton, NJ which is owned by the Varanyak family.

Bill Varanyak told New York's WNBC-TV the 77-year-old tree was planted after his parent's used it as their first Christmas tree in 1931.

He says it's "the miracle tree" because his late mother always said it would one day be on display at Rockefeller Center.

His brother, Bob, says they recently saw a blue bird in the tree and they believe the bird was their mother guarding it.

While the first official lighting was in 1933, the first Rockefeller Christmas tree was put up two years earlier by workers helping to build the complex during the Depression.

I will be posting photos of the 2008 Christmas tree here.

I can't wait to see the pictures. It always feels like the holiday season when they light the tree at Rockefeller center. Our family has been fortunate to see the lighting ceremony a few timesin person. We can't this year due to my Mom's health, but we will watch the TV special when it airs.
