Cincinnati Christmas Tree Compared to the One in Rockefeller Center — See Reactions

There is little doubt that 2020 has been a challenging year for many people. With Christmas on the way, several notable areas have begun setting up Christmas trees. However, even those seem to be feeling the 2020 blues.

Earlier this month, Fountain Square in Cincinnati shared a picture on Facebook. The city square posted a photo showing workers trying to decorate its Christmas tree.

Like several other landmarks, Fountain Square has been putting up trees every Christmas to commemorate the holiday for years. So, it is no wonder they are doing the same.

At the time, Fountain Square had captioned the picture with so much hope and encouragement. The caption highlighted the difficulty of 2020, adding that the Christmas tree should bring some holiday cheer to people. Considering how tough a year it has been, there will be groups of people hoping for some joy. As Fountain Square explained in its post:

"Our team is hard at work making this 65' Norway Spruce beautiful for the holiday season. Stay tuned for transformation photos as we get her fluffed up and beautified..."

Sadly, however, it appeared that all the hype was not quite worth the result. When the tree eventually went up, it was looking rather skinny. It is unclear where Fountain Square's managers found the Christmas tree that they would hang this year. As observers have noted, this does not cut it.

At least, the country can look hopeful for the official White House Christmas tree.

Many people who saw the Fountain Square tree immediately took to social media to compare the tree with that in the Rockefeller Center in New York.

The latter went up recently, and it was not looking too great, either. While the Rockefeller Center has made commitments to improve the tree's aesthetic, the comparisons have been hilarious. One Twitter user wrote:

"First it was NYC's Christmas tree in Rockefeller Plaza. Now look at Cincinnati's tree."

Another Twitter user explained sarcastically that he hoped the two trees are friends and can uplift each other through these challenging times. For one, the Fountain Square tree is much worse than that in front of the Rockefeller Center.

The Rockefeller Center's Christmas tree immediately sparked backlash when it was erected. Many took to Twitter to bash it for being "on brand" for 2020. At least, the country can look hopeful for the official White House Christmas tree.

First Lady Melania Trump received the tree earlier this week from a dealer in West Virginia. As Twitter images showed, the White House Christmas tree looked fuller and thicker. Perhaps the Rockefeller Center and Fountain Square could learn a thing or two.
