Read more from Wikipedia: https://bit.ly/2kGAUqW The first Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center was erected in 1931, during the Depression-era construction of Rockefeller Center, when workers decorated a smaller 20 foot balsam fir with "strings of cranberries, garlands of paper, and even a few tin cans" on Christmas Eve. With the lighting of the 50-foot-tall first official tree two years later, the tree became what Rockefeller Center dubbed "a holiday beacon for New Yorkers and visitors alike." A skating rink was opened below the tree in the plaza in 1936.
The tradition with this family is that Christmas is celebrated a week after (or the first Saturday) after Christmas day. This new generation celebrates a little later in January but the date doesn't matter, it's all good fun and love.....and for some good clean fun, we all look forward to some Dirty Santa....scroll down.
