It’s not the holiday season in Seattle until the Space Needle tree lights up.

Made up of 1,200 lights and perched 560 feet above the ground (600 at the top), the tree will illuminate the skyline through New Year’s, according to the Space Needle website.

This video from Manuel Valdes of The Associated Press  features the crew installing the lights. “We prefer cold over wet,” a technician says.
