The Capitol tree lighting ceremony took place at 5 p.m. Tuesday. The 88 foot tall Engleman spruce arrived at the Capitol last week.

The tree spent the past month on the road traveling to D.C. from Colville National Forest in Washington State.

During Tuesday's ceremony, House Speaker John Boehner will light the tree and deliver remarks. This year's theme is "sharing Washington's good nature."
