It's that time of year again

It's that time of year again: in comes The Tree
and The Tourists into Rockefeller Center. It's at once exciting and frustrating - festive sights everwhere but oh, the people, people, people from beyond all points, smiling, pointing, picture-taking, gawking, standing in the way. Always in the way. (remember to click on the photos for full size viewing)

Yippee! When does it go up? Will I be there in time?

Oh, you'll see it all right. It is put on its stand today and the lighting is Nov. 29th.

That tree looks sickly and small. Especially at the base.

I can't stand the tourist. As much as I am going to miss my NY celeb sightings, there's a reason its ending 12/1/06. The tourists, its so god awful crowded in December.

oh but I love the Tree, even if its sickly.

The tree always looks like that before they prune and primp it. I'll post a finished picture of it when it's all finished. This week and next it's surrounded by scaffolding so they can finish trimming it. The lighting is on 11/29/06. Whatever you do - stay out of the area unless you want to get trampled. We generally just stay at work until they are finished with the big party.
