11 Nov The best Xmas trees to see in NYC
Let´s talk about the best Xmas trees to see. No matter what New York City neighborhood you’re in during the holiday season, you’re sure to be impressed by the festive lights and decorations. These are the must-see Christmas trees, many with lighting ceremonies, all around New York City, during the 2018 holiday season.
This is only fitting because New York City, as the story goes, was the home of the first Christmas tree to have electric lights. Before that, trees were lighted, only briefly on Christmas Eve and day, by candles. At a townhouse on East 36th Street in 1882, the first Christmas tree to ever be adorned with electrical lights was lit. It was the home of Edward Hibberd Johnson, an engineer and vice president of the Edison Electric Light Company, as well as Thomas Edison’s business partner. Johnson had the “bright idea” of wiring 80 red, white and blue light bulbs together around his Christmas tree and placing it in his parlor window.
