Rockefeller Christmas Tree


Last night the Rockefeller Christmas tree was lit! What a gorgeous tree. This year I missed going into NYC to see the tree. A few years ago my sisters and I took my Dad into the City to see the tree and the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall. He doesn't even like the City but that year he was having a bad bout with his Lupus and insisted he go into the City for the tree and the Rockettes! We had a really great time all together. We took him to Ted Turner's Restaurant not very far from there and had a lovely meal. We saw the Rockettes, the tree and then went into St. Patrick's Cathedral. What a wonderful visit to the City that was! What a really fond memory!

What a beautiful photo. It sounds like you had a very magical time. That is certainly a memory to hold dear to your heart.

I haven't even gone to see my own town's Christmas three and decorations. Need to remember to take my camera and get some photos.

I missed watching it on tv the other night but you're right, it sure is a beautiful tree!

I am a native New Yorker and have many fond memories of the tree and Rockefeller Center. My favorite were the golden trumpeting angels lined up before the tree. Beautiful photo...thanks for sharing.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
