For some New Yorkers, it’s not the Macy’s Day Parade that ushers in the holiday season but the lighting of the giant Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree.

Last night, the 74-foot Norway Spruce, complete with 30,000 LED solar-powered bulbs, was turned on – prompting a sea of oohs and aahs from spectators.

In the first week it was installed, it was estimated that the tree drank more than 90 gallons of water per day. After Christmas, its wood will be provided for homes for  Habitat for Humanity and the pulp will become paper for a children’s book. Check out the video below.
