The 2020 holiday season is off to a rocky start.
Christmas trees in cities across the country became the butt of a joke after photos of the sparse evergreens went viral on social media, many users seeing the trees as emblematic of this year’s events.
As a perennial tradition, cities both big and small set up large Christmas trees to kick off the holiday spirit.
One tree that made headlines was the new Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree that arrived from Oneonta, New York last week.
Others said the tree could not arrive looking better given the rise in Covid-19 cases across the country.
A spokesperson for Rockefeller Center explained the tree was still warming up to its new environment, the “Today” show reported
