Tree Lighting, Rockefeller Center

It was a rainy evening with threatening storm clouds building in the distance.  Part of me wanted to call it a night, and just watch from the comfort of my couch.  Yet after the flood of retail commercialism, and several weeks of Black Friday sales being broadcast day and night, I needed a bit of holiday cheer.  Nothing like standing outside for 5 hours in a crowd of 500,000 New Yorkers to lift your spirits!  I brought my little Flip Video to capture the moment.  

 

 

I also used the iPhone 4 with the Audioboo app to record Josh Groban singing the Christmas Song.  Considering the crowd noise, I think it did a pretty nice job. 

 

Listen!

 

 

And now I can honestly say, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in New York.

 

Happy Holidays!
