The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree was lit up on Wednesday, and fans could not stop talking about how gorgeous it is. This comes only a few weeks after several internet users criticized it for looking unattractive.

2020 might have introduced people to many changes, but one thing that appears to remain constant is how beautiful the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree looks.

The 75-foot Norway spruce was recently lit up in an event broadcast on television, and even though it was closed to the public, fans could not help but gush over how amazing the tree looked.

It also boasts a 900 pound Swarovski star covered in three million crystals sitting on the tree. Fan's excitement over the tree comes only a few weeks after online users criticized it for its sickly and unattractive look.

While some described it as the perfect representation of 2020, another compared it to Charlie Brown's sickly tree from the peanuts cartoons.

Others quipped that the tree looked as though it was cutting its own hair because it did not get a good barber for a proper trim during the lockdown. 

However, officials in charge of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree were quick to jump to the tree's defense while slamming all negative comments. In a tweet, they revealed that the tree would soon be beautified and spruced up, adding that it would be up by December 2.

True to their words, the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree does look sparkly and beautiful now. It is undeniably a significant transformation from what it looked like before!
