Life on the Rock - Holiday Season
A few years back I worked at 75 Rockefeller Plaza. I had the perfect view of the Christmas tree. It was lovely to watch and despite the job becoming an emotional drain on me, I did appreciate my my view during those five years.
Here's a little secret about the tree. It's actually kinda scrawny, very Charlie Brown-ish. The weeks leading up to the lighting ceremony, they fill in the bare patches and thinned out areas with remnants from other trees. Yes, good people, the tree gets a weave job!
Also, all of the Rockettes wear really thick pantyhose that gives their legs a uniformed-skin tone and blemish free effect. Oh and they are not really all that tall. But, honey they got that synchronicity thing down!
