Is there a War on Christmas?
Some people certainly seem to think so!
A homeless man, 49, set the tree on fire just after midnight on Wednesday morning.
No motive was mentioned, but police believe mental illness may have been a factor.
It should be noted that the 50-foot tree is not actually a tree.
It is a “metal superstructure” meant to resemble the shape of a tree.
Even still, it took over 21 hours to build.
It also featured 10,000 glass ornaments and 100,000 lights.
Fox News says they will rebuild the tree in time for Christmas.
