NEW YORK (AP) — The signs of Christmas are hard to miss around New York City's Rockefeller Center.

On Tuesday night, crowds will gather for a ceremony to light the 74-foot Norway spruce there. It ushers in a bustling season full of wonderment for tourists and exasperation for workers in the area.

Vanessa Ortiz says she uses a "bobbing and weaving" technique to cut through the crowds.

The lighting ceremony will feature live performances by Sheryl Crow, Josh Groban, Jessica Simpson, British singer Katherine Jenkins and teen pop star Charice.

This year's tree was donated by Peter and Stephanie Acton of Mahopac (MAY'-oh-pak), N.Y.
