It's a sure sign that the holiday season is getting closer: the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree has arrived in NY!

The 75-foot Norway spruce from State College, Pa, has arrived at #RockefellerCenter!

It'll be on display until January 7, 2018.

The tree, which is 50 feet in diameter, will be the 86th to grace the Plaza for the annual weeks-long display and the third from Pennsylvania.

The 85th tree to adorn the plaza is from Pennsylvania this year.

The massive holiday tree will be adorned with more than 50,000 lights and topped with a Swarovski star before it's first lit on November 29.

The first Rockefeller Center Christmas tree was put up in 1931 by workers building the complex during the Great Depression.

Age of tree is about 80 years old, her metropolis have donated a resident of state College Jason Perrin, on the site of which it grew.
