The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree marks the beginning of Christmastime in New York City.

It has been a Christmas tradition for eighty-five years. 
When did it start?  In 1931 (during the Big Depression-era) when some workers on the construction of Rockefeller Center decided decorate one small tree with string, tin cans and garlands of paper on Christmas Eve.

But, what is the Rockefeller Center? (Rockefeller comes from an important family surname).
It is a large area with nineteen buildings surrounding an ice rink, in the middle of Manhattan, between 48th and 51st Streets and Fifth and Sixth Avenue.
When Christmas comes, each year in early December, the most important celebration is the tree-lighting ceremony. 

2017 edition is on 29 November, because it is always the first Wednesday after Thanksgiving. 

Thousands and thousands of New Yorkers (and tourists) go there because they want to see the amazing show; this year version will turn on over 45,000 LED lights and it will be an enormous Swarovski star on top, like always.
Every year the head of gardening flies over Connecticut, Nueva Jersey, Ohio, Vermont... forests and sometimes goes to Canada if necessary, to find the best tree (a spruce). 
On this occasion, the tree came from Pennsylvania and it is twenty-three metres high and it weighs about twelve or thirteen tons. 

After 7 January it will be given to Habitat for Humanity in order to build wooden houses.

Oxford (UK)
Oxford and Cambridge are two cities with some of the finest buildings in Britain and they are famous for their Universities, the oldest in England. 

Cambridge (UK)
Their students live and study in a college. Oxford has 39 colleges and Cambridge has 31. Oxford’s first college started in 1249 and Cambridge’s first opened in 1281.

Women started studying later than men. The first women’s college at Cambridge opened in 1869 and at Oxford in 1878. 

Nowadays, three Cambridge colleges and one Oxford college are for women only. Men and women study together in the others.

If you want to stay in rooms at Oxford or Cambridge, you can do it when the students are on holiday. There are modern rooms but the older rooms are amazing though sometimes more uncomfortable... narrow, with small windows or low ceilings...

But maybe you can sleep in the same room as an ex Prime Minister or a famous scientist, writer, engineer, physician...

Many important people have studied among these walls: 94 Nobel prizewinners at Cambridge University and 28 at Oxford University. And famous people, of course, such as Stephen Hawking at Cambridge or Tim Berners-Lee at Oxford.

Every year at Easter, these Universities compete in a rowing race over 7 kilometres of the Thames. Their first race was in 1829 and 2004 was special because it was the year of the 150th Boat Race.

Each boat has eight rowers and a cox (short for coxswain -the person who steers the boat), who must be a very light man or woman. 

The winners in 2017 were: Men's race - Oxford and Women's race - Cambridge. 

400 million people in the world watch the Boat Race on TV and 7.7 million people in Britain.
The Boat Race is in the top five live TV sports events on British TV.

This course our school is involved in a beautiful project about an amazing land, our land: Asturias, "A Natural Paradise. A Sustainable Paradise", from Schools for Recycling (COGERSA) 

And here it is our small contribution to value our region, to know it better, to love it a little bit more...

And... to taste its flavours, of course! Follow all its routes...

Let's look after it! It's a Natural Paradise and it belongs to each one of us.
