‘Tis the season for holiday festivities!

The South Street Seaport held its 28th Annual Seaport Chorus Tree Lighting Spectacular last month—and through December 24, professional choruses will sing holiday songs in front of the tree. (Click HERE for the schedule.)

From 5 to 7 PM this evening, the New York Stock Exchange will hold its 88th Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony.  This year’s tree is a 53-foot Norway Spruce that hails from Rockland County, NY.  It’s decorated with 3,300 white LED lights, 250 multi-colored balls, the NYSE Euronext logo and a six-foot star.
