Decorative Holiday Decor With Empathy
Every year Rockefeller Center has a Christmas tree. Like the Keep Calm and Carry On slogan, the Christmas tree has a history. The first year there was a Christmas tree in Rockefeller center was 1931. A balsam tree was brought to the site where the excavation of the building was being started and where the workers lined upon Christmas eve. to receive their paychecks. It was the Depression-era so the tree probably meant even more than ever to those workers. The tree was decorated with tinsel. We offer you our Keep Calm and Carry On Christmas tree ornaments to decorate your tree in the memory of that year and the perspective and inspiration it brings for us all to Keep Calm and Carry On.
|The Depression ended but the tree decorating tradition continued. Six weeks before Christmas every year, a tree, accompanied by a police escort, is delivered to midtown Manhattan before the 8 AM rush hour. The city synchronizes all the traffic lights along its route and provides a police escort to expedite things. Riggers and heavy transport equipment are on the site and the tree is erected on a platform where it adds decorative delight to New York City until after the New Year.|
Over the next week, carpenters work to anchor the tree and repair any damaged boughs. 25 electricians haul 20,000 lights on miles of wire to decorate the tree which towers over the Rockefeller Center Skating Rink. Then there is a tree lighting ceremony. New Yorkers love to see the decorated tree and so do visitors who come to NYC just to visit the tree.
After the holiday, every year since 1971, Rockefeller Center's Christmas tree has been chipped for mulch, recycled and sent back to the earth from where it came. The tradition carries on.
