Came across a great video and accompanying story about the history of the Christmas tree. It was interesting to learn that the first tree at Rockefeller Center was placed in 1931. It was a small unadorned tree placed by construction workers at the center of the construction site. Two years later, another tree was placed there, this time with lights. These days, the giant Rockefeller Center tree has over 25,000 Christmas lights.
