88th Annual Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony

Ticket only viewing of the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree in New York City has begun after the lights were turned on Wednesday night in a TV only spectacular. 

Because of the ongoing pandemic, you'll need to reserve ahead to see the 75-foot tall Norway spruce. 

To prevent the usual Christmas tree crowds from forming and to help enable social distancing, police have closed off certain streets. 

Special zones are set up for viewing with a limit of four people in each zone getting five minutes of tree time from 6:00 a.m. to midnight.
