National Christmas Tree: Washington, D.C.

The lighting of a National Christmas Tree in Washington, D.C., has been a tradition since 1923, when President Calvin Coolidge lit a 48-foot Balsam fir donated by the President of Middlebury College in Vermont. Today, thousands gather to watch the tree lighting ceremony in President's Park, just south of the White House. Surrounding the National Christmas Tree is the "Pathway of Peace" -- 56 smaller decorated trees representing the 50 states, five territories and the District of Columbia.
