Gather 'round the Bieber Tree!

Gather ’round the Bieber Tree!

As a New Yorker, I have had ample opportunities to make the voyage down to Rockefeller Center and watch the majestic tree-lighting ceremony each year. But for some reason I have yet to do it.

So I thought, “This year I’m doing it. I’m gonna brave the wind, the snow, the tourists, and finally go see this stupid tree-lighting hoolpah! I mean, I love Christmas more than most people in my life (but not as much as steak, mind you), so at the very least I should go to one of the biggest holiday celebrations in the country, right?”

And OF COURSE when I arrived at work today and began sifting through the day’s top stories, I see this…

BIEBER!? Are you kidding me?

Click ahead to see why I am NOT thrilled..

Justin Bieber, Tony Bennett and Cee Lo Green will be among the stars at the 79th annual Christmas Tree Lighting at Rockefeller Center.

Michael Buble, Faith Hill and American Idol runner-up Katharine McPhee will also take the stage at the November 30th celebration to light the tree.

Why this is awful news: Even without Bieber, this event is always jam-packed with people. No one knows where they’re going and you can hardly breathe let alone walk around and enjoy the tree.

To say the least, this evening re-defines the term chaos.

BUT that should not completely discourage you all from trying to sweat it out with the rest of the holiday hopefulls trying to sneak a peak at The Biebz. The evening is sure to be a good time and what better way to usher (No, not that usher, chill) in the Christmas season?

If anyone goes to the ceremony tweet me pictures from 30 Rock. I will be with you in spirit!
