Every year, Americans look forward to the Christmas tree lighting tradition at the Rockefeller Center in New York. This year's tree looks like it does not give people much to look towards.

The holiday season usually begins with the arrival of a gigantic tree at the Rockefeller Center. Although the tradition was maintained, it was not enough to bring satisfaction to some people who felt the tree could have been better and fuller.

On seeing the tree, one person wrote, "this tree looks like 2020." One fan wrote, "Did they purposely get the saddest tree to match 2020?" Another person with a similar opinion commented,

"why does it look like a Charlie Brown Christmas tree? Not as full as in previous years."

Others with similar discontent also expressed their dissatisfaction. The tree was reportedly brought in from Oneonta, New York. While most people are unhappy about the look, Paula Dick, who donated the tree, feels excited that her tree could bring hope and joy to thousands.

The millions of people trooping into the Rockefeller Center would pose a significant health risk during these times.

Paula was delighted that the 75-tall Norway spruce that stood in her front yard in Oneonta, almost 170 miles from New York City, could be used to serve others in such a historic year.

Although this year's tradition will be different as no public access would be granted to the site, everyone has been encouraged to take part in the annual tradition from their homes.

According to reports, this year's ceremony will take place on December 2nd, and there will be a live national broadcast on NBC. Further details will be passed as to when people can visit the lit tree.

The millions of people trooping into the Rockefeller Center would pose a significant health risk during these times. Although many would love to be present, watching the ceremony on television is said to be equally fun.

The lighting of the tree at Rockefeller Center has been described as the kickoff to the holiday season. Since it began during the great depression, the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree has been a symbol of hope and prosperity for millions. Even though the tree does not look as full as others in the past, people would be glad to see the lit tree in a year plagued by darkness.
