The first full week in December is "Christmas Tree" week and the most famous Christmas tree is in New York City. The tree at Rockefeller Center will be lit on Wednesday, December 4th with a Christmas tree lighting ceremony. Several stars will be performing at the event including Brett Eldredge.

Did you know that in 2016, the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center was from Oneonta? Here's another question: Have you ever wondered what they do with the tree when they are done with it? Find the answer at the end.

In honor of this special occasion, it's time to point out the differences between a Christmas tree and a date....at least the differences that can be mentioned here.

You don't need a clever line to pick up a Christmas tree.

You don't have to wait an hour while your Christmas tree finishes getting ready for the Christmas party.

Your Christmas tree never orders the most expensive thing on the menu. All it wants is water.

It doesn't matter what a Christmas tree wears, they always look fat in it. So wear what you want!

The Christmas tree stays at Rockefeller Center until Friday, January 17th. So what do they do with the tree when they are done?

They turn it into lumber and Habitat for Humanity uses it.
