Tonight, NBC will kick off the most wonderful time of the year with the annual lighting of New York City’s famous tree on the 88th Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree lighting ceremony. Although things may look a little different this year, as the special event will be closed off to the public, the night is sure to be a celebration not to miss.
