The Capitol Christmas Tree has arrived and is lighting up DC!

Just like the White House gets a Christmas tree, so does the West Front Lawn of the Capitol.

Ruby the Red Spruce is a 78-foot-tall red spruce harvested from the Pisgah National Forest in North Carolina. Fun fact: this marks the third time the National Forests in North Carolina has provided the tree!

Officials, including U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper, and others lit the U.S. Captiol Christmas Tree last week.

The tradition of the Capitol Christmas Tree dates back to 1964 when John W. McCormack, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives placed one in the lawn.

Larry Smith with Mountaintop Fraser Fir won the 2018 national contest to provide the official White House Christmas tree for the Blue Room. Check out his interview.
