This year’s Rockefeller Christmas tree, which comes from Central New York, is reminding many people of Charlie Brown.
The 75-foot Norway spruce, donated by Al Dick of Daddy Al’s General Store in Oneonta, N.Y., arrived in New York City on Saturday for the annual holiday tradition. Many social media users complained it didn’t look very full after being lifted into its spot by a crane, and compared it to the sad-looking tree from “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”
- “Charlie Brown: I have the saddest Christmas Tree. Rockefeller Center: Hold my beer,” Emily Brandwin tweeted.
- “The 2020 Rockefeller Center Christmas tree looks like 2020 feels,” another Twitter user said.
- “Could the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree look any worse? 2020 on brand,” Rex Chapman wrote.
- “You get what you pay for at Four Seasons Total Landscaping!” one user joked to Chapman.
- “In true 2020 form, the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree looks like it tried to cut its own hair,” another tweet said.
TWITTER LIT UP OVER TREE
Good grief. Some also compared it to the Fountain Square Tree in Cincinnati, which was mocked earlier this month.
“Rockefeller Tree trying to make a run against the Fountain Square Tree for the charlie brownest tree 2020,” one Twitter user said.
“The Rockefeller tree. The Cincinnati tree. You know what? ALL 2020 Christmas trees should be Charlie Brown trees. Every dang one. I wouldn’t have it any other way. On New Year’s Eve, we can light them all on fire and pretend none of this ever happened,” another tweeted.
The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree was cut down Thursday in Oneonta and loaded onto a 115-foot-long trailer before arriving in NYC. The tree will be decorated over the coming weeks, with added branches and more than 5 miles of lights.
A tree-lighting ceremony is scheduled for Dec. 2 at 7 p.m. on NBC’s “Christmas in Rockefeller Center” special. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, there will be no public access to this year’s event, but the lighting will be broadcast on television to continue the tradition.
