Description
 
Carla Torsilieri D’Agostino (au); Byron Keith Byrd (au); Willard Scott (fr). This factual & fun-filled look at America’s favorite holiday tree --  the spectacular Christmas tree that graces New York’s Rockefeller Center -- details its evolution from a 20’ balsam fir in 1931, erected by Depression-era construction workers & festooned with a few garlands, to a magnificent 90’ spruce in 1996 featuring 26,000 miniature light bulbs. Stunning color images & rare B&W  photos capture the tree & the attendant festivities through the years. Includes:  the 1936 Christmas Day opening of the “Rockefeller Plaza Outdoor Ice Skating Pond”; decorations that have embellished the plaza’s gardens; & entertainers performing before delighted crowds. Also traces the search for the perfect specimen from rural areas outside NY.
