The Rockefeller Christmas Tree Lighting will take place tonight at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City, beginning at 7PM.

For more than eight decades, the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree has stood as a holiday beacon for New Yorkers and visitors alike. While the lights, decorations, and stars have changed through the years, visiting the Tree remains a quintessential New York experience.
