The First-Ever Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center, New York in 1931

The tradition of the Rockefeller Plaza Christmas Tree started in 1931 when construction workers building the towers set up their own tree at the cleared construction site. The next year - 1932 - was the only year that Rockefeller Center didn’t have a Christmas tree. The tradition began on a more organized level when the center opened in 1933.
