We thought, therefore, appropriate for a post here today –- a post during the holiday season – to highlight and give a call out to some impressive and awesome holiday displays and events that annually take place and are located here in America.
Perhaps the most iconic holiday season display in America is the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree – a tradition launched during the Great Depression. Almost always a Norway Spruce, the tree ranges in height, from year to year, from between 60 and 70 feet on the low end, to the 100 foot conifer set in 1999, still the tallest.
The lighting of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree – and its 45,000 multicolored LED lights – is watched in person by tens of thousands, and millions viewing on TV.
The World’s Largest Hanukkah Menorah is installed in New York City, adjacent to Central Park, at the intersection of 5th Avenue and 59th Street. It weighs 4,000 pounds and was designed by Israeli artist Yaacov Agam.
For almost 25 years, the Trail of Lights Trail of Lights in Branson, MO has provided one of the most spectacular holiday lights displays on the planet. The centerpiece of the event and presentation is a 2.5 mile roadway alongside which are millions of lights and hundreds of decorations, props, and themed landscapes through which motorists travel.
Of course, a major holiday tradition throughout America are stores decorating their holiday windows. And no holiday windows are more famed and artfully created than are those in the Macy’s flagship store in New York City.
The Macy’s Holiday Window Display is an American classic.
In terms of spectacular, and historic, uplifting, and heartwarming, First Night Boston – the oldest First Night celebration in America – plays out with cultural and entertainment events across the city, starting early in the afternoon on December 31 and running through to midnight and an awesome show of fireworks over the Charles River.
Willwork, Inc. Exhibit & Event Services hopes for all the Happiest of Holiday Seasons, and a hopeful and prosperous and healthy 2015.
