National holiday symbol homegrown in CT
For the second year in a row, a southwestern Connecticut evergreen has been chosen to be a national holiday symbol -- the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree!
The 85-foot Norway spruce is coming from the yard of a Shelton couple. Rockefeller Center officials scoured all of New England for a year and chose the spruce from the yard of Joseph and Judith Riunyak.
Last year's Rockefeller Center tree was a Norway spruce from Ridgefield.
The holiday?s tree lighting ceremony at NYC?s Rockefeller Center will be held Nov. 28 at 7 p.m.
