News video: Rockefeller Christmas Tree Lighting HeldDespite the rain, thousands gathered in midtown Manhattan Wednesday night to watch the annual lighting of the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center. Just before 9 p.m., New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio flipped the switch illuminating the 94-foot tall, 14-ton Norway spruce with 50,000 multicolored LED bulbs on 5 miles of wires. Security at the event was tight. Spectators were urged to use mass transit and umbrellas, backpacks and large bags were prohibited.
