Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting

Last night was one of the biggest parties of the year!  Most of the time I take for granted living so close to New York City.  My husband works in the city, so we don't go in that often on the weekends.  This time of year there is so much going on in Manhattan.  New York is full of holiday traditions.  The lighting of the Rockefeller Center tree is amongst the biggest.

We were invited to one of the best parties of the year last night.
I just love a VIP pass.  We were able to walk in a secret back entrance into Rockefeller Center, past huge crowds, and the party was held in the restaurant that lead directly onto the Rockefeller Center ice skating rink.  
It was 50 degrees last night, so it was an absolutely perfect night for the tree lighting.  We had access to anywhere we wanted to stand.  We walked up the stairs to get a great view for when the actually lit the tree at 9pm.  

Plus we were trying to be strategic in our positioning, since this is the crowd we were going to have to get through after the lighting was over.  
It really was a magical night and made me happy to be a New Yorker.

Look at the gorgeous favor we received at the end of the evening!
We got one each.  What a gorgeous addition to our own Christmas tree.

Did anyone watch the Rockefeller Center Tree lighting on television last night?

How fun - I love when those kind of opportunities happen. I was in NYC this summer and have been to see the RC tree too - it is magical :-)

That must have been so much fun attended the tree lighting. The snowflake gift is extra special. I live close to NY and go in quite often. It's a wonderful time to shop and see all the decorations.
