White House Christmas tree delivered from Wisconsin
WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama, daughters Malia and Sasha, and family dog Bo have witnessed arrival of a 19-foot balsam fir from Wisconsin as the official White House Christmas tree.
The fir came from Tom and Sue Schroeder's Forevergreens farm near Neshkoro, Wis. It's the first time one of the Schroeder's trees has made it to the White House.
The tree was hauled up the White House driveway on Friday by horse-drawn carriage, where the Obamas inspected it and then gave it a thumbs-up.
The fir is destined for the Blue Room, where it will serve as the centerpiece of White House Christmas decorations.
