KM asked what traditions we have the get us ready for Christmas. I answered that it just kind of happens around me. I forgot this one "tradition"...the lighting of the Rockefeller Christmas Tree! These days, I watch it on TV, but in the past I've seen it live. I used to work in Manhattan, and caught it on my way to Penn Station heading home, amongst a gazillion other people watching the lighting. I know a little known secret about the lighting...if you want to know, leave a comment. But if you watch it yearly, as I do, you'll never think of it the same again. Now, since the tree is lit, the Grinch was on earlier on another station, I am off to find out when my favorite Christmas special will air...Rudolph*!
