National Christmas Tree Program

National Christmas Tree

National Christmas Tree on the Ellipse, Washington, D.C.

The national Christmas tree was lit in a ceremony held on the Ellipse in Washington, D.C., this year on December 3rd. 2009 is the first year that the program included a lottery for tickets to attend the ceremony. The lottery was open for two days online, and as a result, 2,800 seated tickets and 7,000 standing-room tickets were distributed to some very lucky people.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!
