Your Halloween decorations might still be up, but New York City is moving on without you. Cheer yourself up with some discounted candy.

It's officially the holiday season, so get ready for the festive markets, the elaborate window displays, and, of course, the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree.

Out of the other gigantic trees in the running, the decision has been made to cut down a Norway spruce from some dude's backyard upstate in Oneonta.

The tree will be cut down on November 10th before it's transported to the city by November 12th to be decorated.

In case you haven't had the chance to count them, the Rockefeller Center Christmas Trees are wrapped in over 50,000 multi-colored LED lights and then topped with a star made out of Swarovski crystals.

Go big or go home, amirite?

The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, usually a Norway spruce, has been put up every year since 1933, so this will be the 84th anniversary.


While many of them were found upstate, they have also used trees from Connecticut, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Vermont, and even as far as Ottawa, Canada.

@rockcenternyc posted a photo of the view from the top of the tree on their Instagram yesterday.


The official lighting ceremony will be on November 30th, but check out all the other dope things going down this November in the meantime.
