Capitol Christmas Tree Arrives in D.C.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas on Capitol Hill.

The Capitol Christmas Tree has arrived in D.C., all the way from Minnesota's Chippewa National Forest.

Minnesota children and others are making thousands of ornaments to be hung on the White Spruce, which arrived at the Capitol around 11 a.m. Friday.

Speaker of the House John Boehner will light the tree on the Capitol's West Front Dawn at 5 p.m. on Dec. 2. After that, the Capitol Christmas Tree will be lit from dusk until 11 p.m. every day through Jan. 1.
