Well, there wasn't a huge crowd this year, but that didn't stop the Rockefeller Christmas Tree lighting from happening Wednesday night in New York City. 

Starting Thursday, visitors will be able to appreciate the tree's 50,000 lights up close in spaced-out pods. 

This year's National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony outside the White House will also be virtual.
