The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree was lit up in a Nov. 29 ceremony, and Centre County residents have been flocking to New York City ever since to take a look.

That’s because the 75-foot Norway spruce comes from a College Township backyard. It was cut down and transported to Rockefeller Center last month.

If you’re going to visit the now-famous tree this holiday season, the Centre Daily Times wants to see your photos. Email them to rockefellertree@centredaily.com, or tweet them using #SCtoNYCtree.
