It’s that time of the year again! The 78-foot Christmas tree smack-dab in the middle of Rockefeller Center was ceremoniously lit last night for the 83rd year in a row. Tens of thousands of onlookers crowded the sidewalks around the tree, which was kindly donated from a family in Upstate New York. Couldn’t make the tree lighting? Here’s an Instagram wrap-up of the ceremony in all its holiday glory.
