Rockefeller Tree - Christmas decorations !!!

Visiting New york this winter, then do not miss the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. The whole area is lit so beautifully and its just colorful everywhere. The Christmas tree is typically a Norway Spruce. The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree is going "greener"— with energy-saving lights replacing old-fashioned bulbs on the towering evergreen this year. Weather permitting, the tree will also get some of its electricity from 363 solar panels just installed atop Rockefeller Center. The 84-foot-tall tree is covered with 30,000 multicolored light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, strung on five miles of wire. The annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony took place on November 28, 2007 from 7-9 p.m. The annual event was televised and featured musical performances from a variety of popular artists. The Rockefeller Center tradition was started in 1931. The Rockefeller skating rink is again a big feature amidst the lighting. This ice rink is a restaurant in the summer. You have many people skating and the others watching. Its crowded always and those restaurants are always so booked . Another thing, it is a real Swarovski star on the top of the tree.
The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree is illuminated from 5:30 a.m. until 11:30 p.m. daily, except on Christmas and New Year's Eve. Since Christmas is gone, the lights will be turned off at 9 pm on New Eve . The tree comes down on jan 6th 2008.
Rockefeller Center is located in the center of the complex of buildings between 47th and 50th Streets and 5th and 7th Avenues. Closest subway - B/D/F/V to 47-50 Sts/Rockefeller Center or the 6 to 51st/Lexington .

I found a really cool site that has Christmas Projectors and Halloween Projectors that you can use to project Christmas and Halloween images onto your house. They have one that projects animated laser movies too. Pretty cool! So for just about any type of Outdoor Projectors check out Holiday Projectors.
