Michelle Obama recevies White House Christmas tree

The Christmas spirit arrived at the White House on Friday (November 25) as U.S. first lady Michelle Obama received the 19 foot Douglas fir that will decorate the presidential mansion.

The tree, which will be decorated and displayed in the Blue Room of the White House, was grown in Wisconsin and and presented by David and Mary Vander Velden, the winners of the National Christmas Tree Association content for the grandest fir in the land.

“Christmas begins! The holidays start! We’re ready; our last one. We’re excited about it,” Michelle Obama said.
