Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree has arrived with some sadness
The Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center has gone up, and with it comes peak 2020 madness as social media compares it to Charlie Brown‘s tree. That’s right – it seems that 2020 has struck again, and this time it is coming after one of the most iconic Christmas trees we know.
Every year, Rockefeller Center gets dressed up for Christmas, with store windows donning their very best apparel, iconic characters showing up as decorations or as part of the legendary Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, and the Christmas Tree at the heart of the plaza getting decorated for the holidays. But in 2020, it seems that we just can’t have nice things.
Over on Twitter, people are commenting on what some are calling the sad state of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree by comparing it to the iconic tree that Charlie Brown does his best to get into the spirit of the holidays. And unfortunately, we don’t have Snoopy or Charlie showing up to save the day in New York.
The Christmas Tree in Rockefeller Center compared to Charlie Brown’s sad tree
For some Twitter users, the tree is a perfect representation of 2020. For others, it is a call back to the Charlie Brown Christmas special. And honestly, some of these Tweets are too funny, which is good because if we aren’t laughing about this we might start crying.
Perhaps the one thing missing from this picture is the giant red ornament that Charlie Brown tried decorating his tree with. And of course, we wouldn’t mind an appearance from Snoopy and Woodstock if we are being honest.
While the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center is clearly in much better shape than the one poor Charlie Brown had to decorate, we can totally see where the comparisons are coming from. And yet, there is something kind of fitting about this being the tree that take a place of honor in NYC. After all, this tree has clearly gone through some things on his way to his place in the city, and that feels like exactly what this year has been all about.
If seeing these tweets comparing the Rockefeller Center tree to the one Charlie Brown had doesn’t make you want to watch the Peanuts special, I don’t know what will. And while we know that Apple TV has become the permanent home of all things Snoopy and Peanuts, we can point out that there has been a spot of good news in that regard as PBS has partnered with Apple TV to bring us the Christmas Special after all!
Does the Christmas Tree in Rockefeller Center remind you of Charlie Brown’s tree in the Christmas special? Does it make you want to watch the Peanuts gang celebrating the holiday season? Tell us what you think in the comments.
