It may be Spring now, but not so long ago it was a Merry Christmas at the White House thanks to a tree that was once planted in Spring! On November 29, 2013 the White House received their annual Christmas tree. The theme at the White House was “ Joy to All”. The tree was placed in the center of the Blue Room. Below are some pictures from the tree’s arrival. First Lady Michelle Obama, her children Natasha and Malia, and the White
House pets, Bo and Sunny, all went out to greet the 2013 Christmas tree.
