NEW YORK CITY (KSNW) – Some might say it’s the most wonderful time of the year when NYC lights the Rockefeller Christmas tree.

Rockefeller Center got a lot brighter tonight after the 2017 Christmas tree was lit in New York City.

Today Show anchors Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb and Al Roker hosted the event. They were joined by Harry Connick Jr., Gwen Stefani, Seal and Train.

The majestic tree will be on display until January 7.
