Capitol Christmas Tree Arrives After Thanksgiving Recess

November 16, 2012

When Congress returns from the Thanksgiving recess, no one should have a hard time remembering what season we've entered.

The 65-foot Capitol Christmas Tree will be arriving at the West Front of the Capitol the morning of Nov. 26, fresh off its long journey from the White River National Forest in Colorado.

The tree, harvested Nov. 2, made stops in 28 communities across the country on it's way to the Capitol.

The tree will be decorated with approximately 5,000 ornaments, handcrafted by Coloradans, and lit by Speaker John Boehner at 5 p.m. on Dec. 4. The tree will remain lit until 11 p.m. on Dec. 26th for members, staffers, and tourists alike to get a taste of Washington's holiday spirit, as has been the tradition since 1964.
