By  | 

In trending news this morning, a group of nuns who have formed a rock band are going viral, plus the Rockettes kicked of the holiday season at the Rockefeller Center and police in Massachusetts pulled over a man who's tree was bigger than his car.

First up, the Rockettes helped Rockefeller Center light up their Christmas tree for the first time last night. The annual event also featured live music performances and it was free to the public.

The tree will remain at Rockefeller Center until January 7. Then it will be donated to habitat for humanity.

Also trending, police in Sudbury, Massachusetts posted a picture on Facebook of a vehicle they pulled over with a Christmas tree on top so big it would make Clark Griswold jealous. The vehicle was stopped about 25 miles west of Boston. The tree clearly covers the entire car and even hangs off the sides.

Police on Facebook reminded people to transport "holiday trees responsibly." It's unclear if the driver was cited or where the driver planned to put a tree that big.

Lastly, a rock group out of Peru called "Siervas" or "Servants" is gaining popularity, because it's members are 11 Catholic nuns. They travel far and wide to perform and they have quite the following. Viewed over 1 million times on YouTube.

The nuns range in age from their 20s to 40s. They say they're spreading encouragement and hope one song at a time.
