Rockefeller Center hit back Wednesday after being slammed for the 2020 Christmas Tree’s scraggly appearance.
“Wow, you all must look great right after a two-day drive, huh?” the official Twitter account for Rockefeller Center tweeted in the voice of the 75-foot Norway spruce. The post was noted by the New York Post.
“Just wait until I get my lights on!” the famed center added after being compared to the droopy “Charlie Brown” Christmas tree. (RELATED: Macy’s Cancels 160-Year-Old Christmas Tradition Due To Pandemic)

It comes following an Instagram post from the center a few days earlier announcing the arrival of the 2020 tree looking definitely like it was missing some branches. (RELATED: Santa Will Be 6 Feet Away From Kids Behind Plexiglass At Malls Due To COVID-19)
It captioned its post, “Let the holiday season begin! The 2020 Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree has officially arrived at the Plaza.”

In 2020, we all get the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree and that’s just how it is.
