The NYSE Christmas tree has been a Downtown New York tradition since 1923, and is one of New York City’s oldest traditions, celebrating its 96th year. Initially the Exchange celebrated the holiday on its Trading Floor, but in 1923 began erecting a Christmas tree in front of its façade on Broad Street to celebrate with a public tree lighting for New Yorkers and visitors to the Big Apple.
The date coincides with the national tree lighting tradition and the completion of a fully developed electrical grid in Manhattan. On December 24, 1923, President Coolidge presided over the first national tree lighting which was organized to promote the use of electricity and electric Christmas lights as a safe alternative to candles on trees. It was a joint venture between the US Government and the electric industry. Since its founding, the NYSE has marked the Christmas Season as both a time of celebration and giving.
