By Team BLAM: Did you catch the First Family lighting the National Christmas tree? This year’s tree is brand new. The last one was used for 30 years until it was damaged in a recent storm.
The history of the Lighting of the National Christmas Tree is intertwined with the history of America. Through peace and war, from national celebration to national mourning, Americans have gathered together and celebrated the season in this holiday event.
Check out the First Family and the lighting above. Interested in learning more about this American tradition? Visit NationalTree.org for more info.
