a city kaleidoscopically engulfed in lights

(a 75 ft (23m) high Norway Spruce
decorated with 18,000 lights).

the 10 of 12 given words:
city bare cut foliage look letter refuse 
spires (a tapering structure on the top of a building)
Christmas boughs 

a city kaleidoscopically engulfed in lights
nothing bare, but cut out into a concrete jungle
foliage not just green but varied and bright
a look perfect to the letter nothing abysmal

atop a giant spruce tree regally standing
painstakingly transported without fanfare
taking its place surrounded by tall buildings
refusal to be dwarfed by spires amidst the glare

transformed into a giant Christmas tree
its boughs decked with flickering lights
at Rockefeller Center annually since 1933
national tradition ushering cheers of yuletide

Merry Christmas, everyone!
