BREAKING NEWS: New York City may experience a BLUE CHRISTMAS this year but the notable decorations you see there will still be up including the famous Christmas Tree in legendary Rockefeller Center. We are so happy to share with you that the official tree for 2020 has been selected.

It also has been confirmed when the tree arrives this weekend, there will be NO public access to see it arriving.
In addition, NBC's annual live CHRISTMAS IN ROCKEFELLER CENTER Tree Lighting ceremony will be done differently this year.
