Mr. Christmas Tree is sprucing up the streets of the Big Apple again.
It’s Tommy Liberto’s sixth year of dressing up as a Christmas tree decked out in colorful lights — a sight that brings a smile to New Yorkers’ faces.
Liberto, of Bel Air, Maryland, was spotted Saturday riding the subway, walking past Radio City Music Hall, hopping on the Staten Island Ferry and even going down a snowy hill on a sled at Central Park — all while curious spectators watched with wondering eyes.
Liberto’s costume this year features fake evergreen boughs and weighs over 30 pounds.
The 47-year-old comedian, who often documents his Christmas tree adventures on social media, says he loves seeing people’s reactions even if the pandemic has driven the crowds away.
“I hear laughter and I see smiles everywhere I go,” Liberto told the Post. “Putting smiles on people’s faces is what I think my mission is in life.”
