Experience the Magic of the Holidays with the Christmas Tree Lighting at The Met
A visit to the Christmas Tree and 18th-Century Neapolitan Crèche is a holiday tradition for locals and visitors alike, especially at the daily 4:30 tree lighting. Pinpoint spotlights highlight the beauty of the collection on the tree and surrounding its base.
The 20-foot blue spruce is adorned with 19 cherubs and 59 angels in colorful flowing robes. Scattered around the landscape at its base and its Nativity scene are exquisitely detailed shepherds and their flocks, the three Magi and their procession of retainers, peasants, townspeople, and nearly 50 animals.
Additional events take place on Fridays and Saturdays at 5:30 and 6:30.
At B’nai B’rith Queens Apartments in Flushing, New York, it is clear that we have it all, but we still feel obliged to inform you of all the events our community has scheduled. Please feel free to join in all of the fun at this event!
