It must be so magical this time of the year at Rockefeller center! I took this photo from our spring holiday to New York this year.
Not much to share. Just feeling a little nostalgic while doing my online shopping for families and friends in the US. I am looking for Christmas hampers to send including saxaphone reeds online as gift to our god child who is showing early signs of music inclination.That is so good to know as we are all aware people who can play an instrument do have higher IQ.
I wish i have done my shopping earlier as some of the items are no longer available yaiiks! Got to go and I hope you too are ticking off your gift shopping list!
“The first Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center was a spindly balsam erected on the construction site in December, 1931.” According to Time Magazine, “On Christmas Eve 1931, with the nation mired in the Great Depression, a group of construction workers erected a 20-ft. tree on the muddy site of what would become one of the city’s greatest architectural and commercial monuments. Despite their grim faces, the men had cause to celebrate. Unlike most of their colleagues, they were about to get paid.”
