Humble Beginnings
Today it's a multimillion-dollar extravaganza that attracts thousands of tourists every year, but the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree hasn't always been so glamorous. On Christmas Eve 1931, with the nation mired in the Great Depression, a group of construction workers erected a 20-ft. tree on the muddy site of what would become one of the city's greatest architectural and commercial monuments. Despite their grim faces, the men had cause to celebrate. Unlike most of their colleagues, they were about to get paid. (Notice the wooden crate at the foot of the tree and the clerk behind it dispensing checks.) Two years later, a Rockefeller Center publicist organized the first official tree-lighting ceremony.

Árbol en el sitio fangoso de lo que se convertiría en uno de los mayores monumentos arquitectónicos y comerciales de la ciudad. A pesar de sus rostros sombríos, los hombres tenían motivos para celebrar. A diferencia de la mayoría de sus colegas, estaban a punto de ser pagados. Dos años más tarde, un publicista del Rockefeller Center organizó la primera ceremonia oficial de iluminación de árboles. (Ver la caja de madera al pie del árbol y el empleado detrás de ella.
