Just when you thought the year couldn’t get any worse, the 2020 Rockefeller Christmas tree has officially been erected in New York City.
The huge Norway spruce, which is arguably the most famous festive tree in the world, is usually extra-large, super-full and sparkling with Christmassy cheer.
In fact, one Twitter user even described it as "the saddest Christmas tree." Yikes!
On November 14, the Rockefeller Centre shared a photo of the tree officially arriving in the city, writing, "Let the holiday season begin!"

However, it didn't take long for social media users to start commenting on the tree's apparent 2020-inspired appearance.

Many Twitter users responded by comparing the tree to the one featured in A Charlie Brown Christmas.

While it’s looking a little miserable right now, some people urged others to be patient and positive, noting that the tree will improve in the days to come.
