Rockefeller Center Posts Epic Throwback After 2020 Christmas Tree Goes Viral For All The Wrong Reasons

Rockefeller Center is not taking the jokes about this year’s annual Christmas tree! New York City’s famous plaza is home to a giant tree every Christmas season, and this year’s lighting will take place on December 2.

The new tree is a 75-foot-tall Norwegian spruce from Oneonta, New York, which looked very large when it was first announced. However, when it arrived at Rockefeller Plaza, it looked slightly worse from wear and tear.

Twitter quickly caught on to the tree and joked that it was the perfect representation of the year 2020.

“Did they purposely get the saddest tree to coincide with 2020?” wrote a commenter.

“2020 you had enough. Not Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree too,” another person joked.

Several days later, the Rockefeller Center account responded with a clapback comment of its own.

“Wow, everyone should look good after a two-day trip, huh?” the bill joked. “Wait until I turn on the lights! See you on December 2nd 😉”.

The tree will be trimmed with more than 50,000 multi-colored LED lights and crowned with a giant Swarovski star.

The scruffy look of this year’s tree wasn’t the only headline to come out of its transport. A small owl that had been hiding in the branches of the tree was discovered and relocated to the Ravensbeard Wildlife Center in Saugerties, New York. He was given the name “Rockefeller” and appears to be on the mend.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, no member of the public will be able to see the tree lighting in person this year, but there will be a lighting ceremony on Wednesday, December 2 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
