Official Christmas tree arrives at White House
WASHINGTON - The White House Christmas tree has arrived.
A horse-drawn wagon hauled it up the driveway to the North Portico on Friday morning.
First lady Michelle Obama, daughters Malia and Sasha and family dogs Bo and Sunny inspected the tree. They circled the wagon, smelled it and conferred with each other before the first lady said "We're taking the tree."
The 20-foot white fir comes from a Pennsylvania tree farm.
The tree will be trimmed in the Blue Room, where it will stand as the main attraction throughout the White House holiday season.
