Another Tree You'll Want to See is in Washington DC

The fall tours of the White House Gardens may have already come and gone, but the holidays bring other special, Presidential events. For example, there's the lighting of the National Christmas Tree, which goes down December 6 on the Ellipse nearby the White House.

This will be the 90th annual National Tree lighting, which gives it a full decade more seniority over the Rockefeller Center Tree, and the night promises "nationally known entertainers and a United States military band," plus the President's message of peace.

All of that you'll have to catch livestreamed online on the 6th as unfortunately the time period to score the extremely limited tickets has passed. That doesn't mean you can't visit it when the lights have been on a few days. This year, "Santa" should be in residence to ask children what they'd like for the holidays, and we're sure the location will inspire some requests for LEGO White House sets. Do those even exist? We kinda want one now.
