Capitol Christmas Tree arrives in Washington D.C. | Community Spirit
After a month long, cross country journey the Capitol Christmas Tree arrived in Washington D.C. on Wednesday morning.
The 88-foot Engelmann Spruce from the Colville National Forest will light up the lawn of the Capitol building throughout the month of December. The tree will be decorated with hand made ornaments from people around Washington state.
House Speaker John Boehner will light the tree alongside six-year-old Giovanni Gayner, a first grader from Colville, on December 3rd.
