Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree.
In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall."

A Little Bit Of Christmas History!!!
 
The official Christmas tree tradition at
Rockefeller Center began in 1933
 when the 30 Rockefeller Plaza was first opened.
 
 The unofficial tradition began during
 the Depression-era construction
 of Rockefeller Center,
when workers decorated a small
 20 foot balsam fir tree with
 "strings of cranberries, garlands of paper,
and even a few tin cans"
on Christmas Eve, December 24, 1931! 
 
 By some accounts, 
the tin foil ends of blasting caps
were also used as decorations on the tree!
 

 Even during the Depression,
the Spirit of Christmas was very much alive
 in the hearts of all men!!  
 
The Human Spirit Will Always Prevail!!
 
   


"Peace on earth will come to stay,
 when we live Christmas every day."
                            ...Helen Steiner Rice




"Blessed is the season which engages
 the whole world in a conspiracy of love."
                   ...Hamilton Wright Mabi


 

"If there is no joyous way to give a festive gift, give love away."
