NEW YORK -

In a sure sign of the approaching holiday season, the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree arrived Saturday morning in New York City.

The 75-foot Norway Spruce was cut down and loaded onto a truck Thursday in State College, Pennsylvania.

It will soon be decorated with more than 50,000 lights.

The tree will be lit up on Nov. 29.
