Last-minute rehearsals1, and the final touches are taking place before tonight's tree lighting2 ceremony in Rockefeller Center.

This year, the Norway spruce soars nearly 9 storeys and it is the centerpiece of Rockefeller Center during the holidays.

Hours before the televised tree lighting ceremony begins, people from all around the country are starting to carve out a viewing spot.

"It's a bit early, but I think it's worth it."

"With what her friends told her from work, come early so we can get a good spot, so..."

"It's great, it couldn't be any better."

Debbie Moore traveled all the way from Dallas to see the tree light up in person.

"This's been...er... one of my wife's longtime dreams to come and see this, so we finally made it happen. Wish we wouldn't have to stand here for several hours."

And when the switch is turned on, more than 30,000 lights carefully wrapped on the branches by crews over the past 2 weeks will signal the start of the holiday season.

"Got a dazzling crystal star topper measures nearly 10 feet in diameter and is made up of 25,000 crystals, this year's Christmas tree comes from a home in Connecticut about 60 miles from the mid-town Manhattan spot where it now stands."

In New York, Michelle Freads, NBC News.
