Rockefeller center Christmas tree will splurge 30,000LEDs

With Thanksgiving around the corner, Christmas is close-by, and the giant LED-lit Christmas tree in New York’s Rockefeller Center has arrived in NYC. They have started to light the tree with LEDs in 2007, and they were a novelty back then, and have kept on, even the Swarovski crystal star atop is now LED-lit (with 720 fixtures).

The conversion of the Rockefeller tree to LEDs can be seen as the strong increase in popularity of the LED industry in the past years. The tree will only be turned on the week after thanksgiving (Nov.30th), and when New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg will flip the switch to enlight the tree, 30,000 energy-efficient LED lights will shine brightly, reminding everyone that LED lighting is beautiful, and helps to save energy.
