NEW YORK (AP) — Hard to believe it’s only a month until Christmas.

Rock legend Ronnie Spector is the headliner Friday night at the South Street Seaport‘s tree-lighting ceremony in Lower Manhattan.

The Seaport’s Christmas tree is about 40 feet tall.

Not to be outdone, Long Island’s Cradle of Aviation museum is having a whole Festival of Trees from Friday through Sunday.

The main tree is 16 feet, and decorated with — of course — an aviation theme. It’s surrounded by 32 trees that are 6 feet tall, and 300 mini-trees.

The museum also is stocked with 3,000 gingerbread men, awaiting decoration by kids.
