The Christmas Tree is on its Way to Rockefeller Center

Halloween has come and gone and Thanksgiving will be here before you know it. Right after you set your fork down from stuffing your face full of turkey… you know what time it is. The Christmas season typically begins on Black Friday where crazy sale shoppers battle it out for the best savings, though to us New Yorker’s, it’s not Christmas until there’s a tree at Rockefeller Center.


Dan Sigafoos, 38, and Rachel Drosdick-Sigafoos, 29 of Pennsylvania who call themselves Christmas Elves, donated the 85-foot, 13-ton Norway spruce. It was cut down Wednesday morning and loaded onto a trailer with a crane for the 155-mile journey to festive NYC.

Via Newsday, “I am a big Christmas elf. My whole family are Christmas elves,” said Drosdick-Sigafoos. “So for me, this is just literally beyond my wildest dreams.”

The tree will come to life, decorated and lit on Dec 3rd for a sacred ceremony that has been a merry tradition in New York since 1933. Thousands will fill the streets to watch the illumination of the Christmas spirit as millions watch from home around the world.

“After Christmas, the tree will return to Pennsylvania and its wood will be used to build homes for Habitat for Humanity,” Drosdick-Sigafoos stated.
